Dr Mendoza consulting with patientThe friendly team at Dental On Falconer is experienced in providing a broad range of dental solutions. If you require a routine checkup and clean, we’ll assist you and make sure that your oral health stays in the best possible shape.

We recommend you have checkups twice a year. With this preventative care, we can identify any potential problems early and ensure that your teeth & gums stay healthy.


What’s Involved in a Checkup & Clean

Our comprehensive check and cleans have several different steps:

  • Examination of teeth and gums
  • Digital X-rays
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Clean and polish
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Advice on hygiene habits

The first part involves an evaluation of each of your teeth and the surrounding tissues. Digital X-rays are a diagnostic tool that can locate problems not seen by the naked eye. They can locate infection, bone loss, gum disease, and decay between the teeth or under fillings. Though you may not require them every year, we’ll advise you on the recommended frequency for your particular situation. The radiation exposure is small and poses no risk to you.

Cleaning & Polish

The soft tissues of the mouth are then checked for any signs of oral cancer or other diseases. For the cleaning component, any buildup of plaque, tartar and surface stains are removed. Your teeth are polished to a luminous finish. We’ll give you a fluoride rinse that strengthens teeth and remineralises areas that show any signs of early decay. Finally, if we feel that you could benefit from advice on your home care habits, we’ll discuss it with you.
