Scale and Clean in Noosa

At The Dental Junction, we emphasise the importance of preventative care to our patients. By keeping your biyearly checkups with us, you can avoid common dental issues, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Your checkup involves a scale and clean with our oral health therapist. Though every six months is suitable for most people, if you have a history of gum disease or other chronic problems, we may recommend you see us more often.

Your Comprehensive Check and Clean

At your appointment, there are several steps involved:

  • An examination of teeth and gums
  • Cleaning the teeth to remove buildup
  • Polishing away surface stains
  • Screening for oral cancer
  • Evaluation for periodontal disease
  • An assessment of your temporomandibular joint (TMJ)

Our team will thoroughly answer any questions you have. If we have any recommendations about your home hygiene routines, such as products to use, we’ll be sure to discuss that with you.

Why X-rays Are Important

We provide digital X-rays that will enable us to see areas of your mouth that aren’t visible during your regular examination. If decay is present between your teeth or there are signs of bone loss, an X-ray will inform us. These images also help us make an accurate treatment plan for services such as orthodontics and dental implants. You won’t need X-rays every time you visit us, unless we see signs of a problem, which we’ll discuss with you.

Experience a More Comfortable Clean with an air polish!

Many people avoid or delay their routine dental cleanings because they fear the discomfort of traditional dental hygiene treatment. We are pleased to offer an air polish treatment that uses a fine high-pressure jet that gently removes bacteria and stains from your teeth’s surface. an air polish can reach the front and back of your teeth and can clean periodontal pockets as well. It’s also a good whitening treatment without using whitening products.

Gum Disease Treatment

The largest contributing factor in adult tooth loss is periodontal disease. By diagnosing this condition early on, we can preserve your teeth and prevent costly treatments in the future. A gum disease treatment involves deep cleaning that removes the bacteria in your mouth. We’ll advise you on the proper hygiene strategies, so that you can properly clean your teeth and gums at home.
