Do you need a routine dental checkup? Are the surfaces of your teeth riddled with plaque and tartar? Has it been a year or more since you’ve had a dental check-up? Dr Danka is not only here to solve your dental problems, he can help you prevent them.

Warning signs & symptoms you may need a routine dental check-up

Many of us always find a reason to put off visiting a dentist. The fear of pain and what the dentist may find is why people may feel apprehensive about visiting them. Dr Danka understands these anxieties which, in-turn, goes a long way in counteracting any past bad dental experiences you may have had. Here are a few signs you may need to pay him a visit?

  1. You have an abscess or swelling on the inside or outside of your mouth
  2. You notice a little blood when brushing
  3. You have broken a tooth or teeth
  4. Persistent Bad Breath
  5. Pain and/or swelling in or around your mouth
  6. Gum problems such as bleeding or inflammation
  7. Difficulty chewing
  8. Increased sensitivity to hot and cold foods or beverages
  9. Jaw problems that cause an uneven bite

The Importance of a Routine Dental Check-Up

Routine dental check-ups are crucial to maintaining your oral health and preventing a range of oral health concerns. People who visit the dentist every 6 months for a check-up are less likely to deal with serious dental issues later on. Some of these issues may even require invasive treatment.

Regular check-ups with Dr Danka will ensure your teeth are more likely to stay healthy and strong. In the long-run, regular visits to your dentist will save you time, money, and pain. Diagnosing, treating, and fixing your teeth problems early will help you avoid more expensive dental work in the future.

What can I Expect from A Teeth Cleaning?

During your teeth cleaning session with Dr Danka, you can expect to experience the following:

  • Dr Danka will check to see if your lymph nodes appear normal and healthy. An x-ray of your mouth may be taken.
  • You will then be asked to rinse your mouth so that the doctor can examine the inside. This is to check for any broken fillings, cavities, signs of gum disease etc.
  • The cleaning begins with Dr Danka using a series of special dental tools to remove tartar and plaque build-up from the surface of your teeth as well as in-between them.
  • In some cases, professional flossing will be performed as well a polish. This is to avoid build-up in the future.
  • Dr Danka will let you spit during certain points of the cleaning so as to remove extra saliva from your mouth

After your cleaning, Dr Danka will suggest improvements you can make to your oral hygiene routine. He will reveal the issues he found during your cleaning and suggest how they can be treated. These will be dealt with in another appointment. Your next teeth cleaning appointment will then be scheduled.

What can I expect at my Dental Check-Up?

A comprehensive dental examination enables Dr Danka to detect your problems early which makes them more manageable. Here’s what you can expect when you have your dental check-up:

  • Dr Danka will ask about your general health issues and if you’ve had any oral problems since your last visit.
  • Your mouth, teeth and gums will be examined.
  • He will check how well your upper and lower jaw come together.
  • The doctor will probe your teeth with a dental instrument to check for signs of tooth decay.

Teeth Cleaning

Teeth cleaning is a procedure dentists use to eliminate plaque build-up and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth. It dramatically reduces the risk of gum disease as well as tooth decay. Unlike teeth whitening which is a cosmetic procedure that removes stains, cleaning your teeth is important for the on-going health of your teeth.

Warning Signs & Symptoms you may need to clean your teeth

  • Persistent bad breath (halitosis)
  • An unpleasant taste in your mouth
  • Red, swollen tender, or bleeding gums
  • You can visibly see and feel the plaque and tartar build-up
