There is growing evidence that our oral health is linked to our physical health. Abnormalities in your mouth can be an early sign of medical conditions. This is called Oral-Systemic Connection. At Royal Park Dental, our focus goes beyond your oral health. Our team of dental professionals take time to check and examine any abnormalities in your mouth in order to detect early signs of medical conditions.
At Royal Park Dental a scale and polish is known as an “Active Maintenance appointment” as we provide much more than “just a clean”. We focus on preventing and early intervention of dental decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. Thus, your 6-monthly “Active Maintenance appointment” is important to both your oral health and physical health because we monitor your dental health, identify any risk factors, address your health concerns and ultimately help to maintain your overall health. Your “Active Maintenance appointment” is delivered by a multi-disciplinary team approach with the dentist and appropriate referral to other oral health and medical teams.
Our hygienist has been specifically trained to perform preventive treatment as well as maintenance of the mouth, teeth and gums. This allows for more time to be dedicated to this important aspect of your oral health.
At this appointment our hygienist will help you find the most appropriate dental hygiene products for you to maintain your health outside of these appointments. One of our dentists will also complete a thorough oral check of your entire mouth including jaw joints, tongue, palate and lip.
