Good oral health is a part of good overall health. Regular oral and dental checkups are important factors in preventing and correcting possible problems. In addition to your teeth, the Hammas Mehiläinen dentist checks the oral mucosa, the general functioning of the teeth and possible gum problems and estimates potential future problems. An X -ray image of the entire jaw is part of a proper examination to ensure that there are no latent problems or need for treatment under dental fillings, in the periapical areas or the jaw bone. On the basis of the performed examination and X-ray imaging, a treatment plan and a cost estimation are made, based on various treatment options, if necessary, and the progress of the treatment is planned individually, based on the si tuation and needs.
You should have a dental checkup approximately once a year, because cavities can emerge without any symptoms at all. Your OmaHammaslääkäri dentist is the best expert in regards to your oral health and thus our services include a call to a periodic oral health examination, as agreed upon. Your patient relationship with your own familiar dentist is the best maintenance treatment for your teeth and it also leads to a decrease in the cost of the dental care, as the need for treatment decreases.
General dental care includes all conventional dental care procedures, and, based on the dentist’s evaluation of the case, also the services of a special dentist and/or a dental hygienist:
- examinations/annual check-ups
- root canals
- acute cases of pain or other acute needs for treatment
- ordinary cases of tooth extraction
- loose dentures
- crowns and bridges
- more extensive treatments and referrals to special dentists or a dental hygienist
Our special dentists take care of more demanding procedures and treatments requiring special expertise. Our dental hygienists are professionals in the preventive care and early treatment of oral and dental diseases. They perform tartar removal and treat gi ngivitis, and provide at-home treatment tips suited just for you.
At the Hammas Mehiläinen clinics, the general dentists, special dentists, dental hygienists and dental nurses form a treatment team, which offers you the best possible care.
