During your dental consultation at Sonria, you will receive a full oral assessment, including an oral cancer screening, to establish your oral health and suggest if any treatment needs to be carried out.
A hygiene appointment, also known as Scale and Polish, involves removing the plaque and tartar build up on your teeth. This procedure will leave the surfaces of your teeth clean and smooth so the bacteria are unable to stick to your teeth again, giving you a better chance of keeping them clean with regular home care, thereafter.
Air polishing is an alternative way to return natural teeth colour without using harsh teeth whitening products. The procedure involves using a dental air polisher unit and a flash pearl to reduce stains resulting from everyday foods such as red wine, coffee, etc.
Dental x-rays are taken to look for the following:

– Root postions
– Decay inside or between teeth
– Changes in your jaw joint
Your dentists will discuss the findings of your x-ray(s) with you and advise, accordingly.
