Your check up will include a thorough full mouth examination for dental decay. Using higher magnification and powerful lighting, our dentists can detect decay at an early stage and therefore prevent excessive tooth damage. When cavities are small, they are much easier and less expensive to treat. Your dentist or hygienist will use a “scale and polish” when your teeth require a thorough clean to remove all traces of plaque and tartar. Scaling is used to remove the hard tartar on your teeth, which cannot be removed by simply brushing your teeth. The polishing stage helps to clean away stains from your teeth, which may have been caused by coffee, tea, red wine or smoking.
At Nuala Cagney Dental & Facial Aesthetics Clinic our dentist will discuss the treatment options that are available to you.
