North Adelaide Smiles: Cleaning And Check-Ups
It is common for people to neglect dental hygiene because they may be under the impression that flossing and brushing are enough. While flossing and brushing are most certainly recommended, the most thorough flossing and brushing can still leave behind bacteria and plaque.
Plaque contains a combination of food particles and living bacterial colonies that start to harden, similar to barnacles on boats. At this stage, only a dental practitioner can successfully remove what has now turned into “tartar”.
Why Do You Need North Adelaide Smiles Cleaning And Check-Ups?
Everyone knows what a dental cavity is, but you might not know that cavities are mainly caused by the living microbes
on your teeth. Regular check-ups with your dentist results in early and regular detection of these cavities. Early detection also usually results in far less damage to the structure of a tooth, which can also mean less expensive work.
Decay of teeth can also eventually reach the tooth pulp when left uncontrolled, which can result in severe infection and pain. It is also important to know that when the decay has not yet affected the nerve of your tooth, you might not be aware that you even have cavities until you experience a painful a severe toothache. That is why it is so important to go for regular dental check-ups.
Unlike plaque, tartar consists of non-living, mineralised bacteria. You may be wondering what type of damage a non-living bacteria can cause? The problem lies in the fact that plaque and tartar go hand in hand. Tartar has a rough texture and this is why it adheres very well to the surface of a tooth.
Plaque has a slimy composition and adheres well to the tartar. As mentioned above, plaque contains live bacteria. These two elements work microscopically and in tandem to ulcerate the gums. If you have ever gone through the experience of bleeding gums, this is a condition known as gingivitis. This is also why you should go for regular check-ups and cleaning performed by North Adelaide Smiles professionals.
North Adelaide Smiles Can Assist With Periodontitis And Gingivitis
Gingivitis is a reversible condition. However, what happens when you start losing teeth, missing teeth, or bone loss? This is known as periodontitis. Periodontitis will occur when the bacteria reach beyond your gums and start to destroy the supporting bones. Our compassionate North Adelaide Smiles experts will assist you in establishing a customised hygiene program to prevent periodontitis and gingivitis from occurring.
Certain people require more regular dental hygiene check-ups than the usual six-month check-up and cleaning. Regardless of how frequently you should be visiting a dental clinic, we aim to retain healthy smiles. Nothing compares to natural teeth and when you care for them properly, they could last you a lifetime.
As you may have noticed, cleaning and check-ups involve a lot more than just simple trips to your local dental clinic. They are the foundation of oral health and maintaining a beautiful smile. Allow North Adelaide Smiles to retain your natural smile allowing you to feel confident about your smile.

Here at North Adelaide Smiles, dental cleaning isn’t just restricted to a quick cleaning process. Our experts begin with a thorough physical examination followed by plaque removal. After this, brushing is done with gritty toothpaste and it is followed by proper flossing and fluoride treatment.
It depends on how important your oral health is to you. Even if you do regular brushing and flossing, it is better to go for a dental check up at least once or twice a year to prevent onset of gum diseases or other issues before they become a big problem.
The usual cleaning process shouldn’t cause any pain. However, if there are other complicated issues such as tooth decay, undetected oral diseases or inflamed gums, it may complicate things and may lead to irritation or pain. If you experience pain during the process, let the staff know right away and they will find the best solution.
For healthy and clean teeth, it should not take more than 30 minutes. However, the time taken really depends on number of cavities and extent of tartar build up.
Teeth cleaning is generally not painful but if you have other oral health issues, it may lead to pain or irritation. Dentists may apply local anaesthetics to numb the gums and avoid pain. If you are in discomfort, ask the dentist to apply a numbing agent.
A dental check up typically covers a thorough physical examination of the mouth followed by removal of tartar build up. Once the scraping is complete, they will floss between and around every tooth to get rid of any remaining food particles. It is typically followed by rinsing and fluoride treatment.
The dental staff will also advise you on any oral health issues along with recommendations for treatment.
