Check up and clean
At Refine Dental, our professional clean and polish to remove plaque and tartar that you simply can’t remove when brushing and flossing at home. This is done typically at the same appointment as your regular check-up, but a separate appointment may be required if there’s more than the expected amount of build-up to remove or if your gum health is compromised.
After your clean, your dentist may recommend a concentrated fluoride application. This treatment is aimed at hardening the enamel of the teeth helping to prevent decay, tooth wear, and erosion caused by acidic foods and drinks.
Most dentist recommends having a check-up and clean every six months. Your dentist will advise you if you need to attend more or less frequently based on your oral health, dental hygiene, and general health.
