Check-up and clean

Dental plaque is thick and sticky film of bacteria that builds up on the teeth. Plaque can harden to become CALCULUS also known as TARTAR.

Bacteria in plaque reacts with sugars and starch in food to produce acids which tooth enamel and gums and cause dental cavities. Dentist will check your oral health by examining your teeth and gums noting whether plaque and calculus are present. Teeth are examined for any decay and check the existing fillings. Digital X-Rays are used as aid to detect decay. So regular check-ups every six months will ensure problems are detected and treated early.

It is a quick and easy way taking only a few minutes. The tooth is prepared with a special blue solution, washed and dried with air. The liquid is applied and set hard using a special light.
