Dental Checkups & Cleanings in Accra
Bethel Dental dentist places your dental and oral health high on their list of priorities. That’s why they and their team of dental hygienists and dental assistants want to see you and each member of your family for twice yearly dental checkups and cleanings. Some people may need to be seen more often if they have teeth that are susceptible to cavities or if they are being treated for gum disease. Your dentist in Ghana will be able to advise you how often you should be scheduling checkups.
Dental Checkups for Prevention
The cornerstone of dentistry is prevention. If we can help you avoid oral health problems before they get out of hand, then you’re on the way to having a smile that looks and feels good.
At your preventive dental checkup, we can monitor the condition of your teeth and gums in order to spot problems that may not be visible or giving you trouble—yet. For example, gum disease is a common oral infection that many people are simply unaware of. The early signs can be difficult to recognize. However, one of our skilled dental hygienists will examine your gums and measure the depth of gum pockets in between your teeth; pockets that are deeper than four millimeters may indicate the presence of gingivitis, the early phase of gum disease. If found early, gum disease can be treated with more stringent oral hygiene at home or periodontal therapy in our office.
Your dental checkup will also include yearly digital x-rays to find tooth decay, possible infection inside a tooth and to get a visualization of the bone structure underneath your gums. These x-rays are visible right away on the computer monitor next to your chair so you and your dentist can see and discuss the condition of your oral health.
At Bethel Dental, you can count on our hygienists to do an outstanding job of cleaning and polishing each one of your teeth. Reaching every surface of your teeth is no easy task when you brush at home. We can clean those hard to reach spots at the back of your mouth and along the lingual surfaces. Plaque and tartar that lead to gum disease can build up here. A cleaning can also remove extrinsic stains from your teeth so your smile will be clean and bright.
