Check-up & Consultation: What Are They, Benefits and Cost

It’s time for your routine check-up.

Welcome to the Antalya Dental Hospital!

We are always excited to welcome new smiles through our doors.

Whether you’re planning to restart your oral care or you’re looking for a new dental practice that’s more convenient for you, we are here for you.

Regular check ups

A check-up, which involves a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and mouth, will prevent minor problems from becoming major ones. At Antalya Dental Hospital, we recommend six monthly check ups with your dentist, which when supported by a good at-home routine, will help to keep your mouth healthy.

Nowadays, a regular examination uses both modern technology and the dentist’s up-to-the-minute knowledge and skills, all in a virtually pain-free environment.

What happens during a check-up?

At each check-up, the dentist or dental hygienist will ask about any difficulties since your last visit. As you settle into the dental chair, a check-up, scaling and polishing takes place.

Check-up: Your dentist or dental hygienist will check for cavities and to see if there’s any plaque – that’s the clear, sticky layer of bacteria – or tartar on your teeth. Next, the dentist checks the gums, seeing if the spaces between your teeth and gums are shallow. Gum disease becomes apparent when the spaces become deeper. The dentist also checks the tongue, throat, face and neck, looking for any signs of trouble or swelling as well as detecting any signs that might indicate oral cancer.

Scale & polish: Plaque or tartar build-up needs to be removed, so the dentist or hygienist uses special instruments such as an ultrasonic scaler to painlessly knock loose any larger pieces of tartar, and provide deep cleaning above and below the gum line – all with a tickling vibration. Once all the surfaces are smooth, they are polished to remove stains from the teeth using a slow-speed handpiece with a soft rubber cup that spins. Inside the cup is a polish comprised of an abrasive toothpaste-like material and fluoride – this powerful mix is spun around on the soon-to-be smooth and shiny teeth.

What can I expect on my first dental check-up?

  • Your first check-up will be 30 to 40 minutes long. For children, the visit usually takes between 20 to 30 minutes. Don’t forget to bring your Emirates ID or any other government-issued ID for your registration.
  • Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your appointment. You will be asked to fill out a New Patient Form which tells your dentist about your medical history and other information that may affect your oral health.
  • Your dentist will begin by asking questions about your health and talk about any concerns you have regarding your teeth, gums, smile and overall oral health.
  • Your dentist will do a visual examination of your teeth, gums and soft tissues to check for signs of decay, gum disease, malocclusion (bite), and oral cancer. If necessary, we may take X-rays and photographs of your teeth.
  • After your exam, your dentist will discuss recommended treatments to address your needs. This is great opportunity for you to explore all your options, whether cosmetic, restorative or orthodontic, to maintain or improve your oral health.

What happens if I need a treatment?

We will address any of your concerns so that you can make an informed decision regarding any proposed treatment. We are here to give you the best advice, but we want you to take control of your treatment.

Your dentist will explain in detail what the treatment is for and will show you a breakdown of the cost. No treatment will be started without your consent, and it will be up to you to make a decision.

It’s all about you, don’t be afraid to ask.

This day is all about you and no matter what your current oral state is, we are here to make sure you get the smile you will love. Don’t be afraid to ask.

No judgment, that’s our promise!

At what age should I have orthodontic treatment?2022-02-06T20:40:52+03:00

The best time is generally during childhood, but adults can have orthodontic treatment too – and more and more are doing so. Age is less important than having the right number of teeth. In children it may be necessary to wait for enough teeth to come through before starting treatment.

Why am I afraid of the dentist?2022-02-06T20:51:22+03:00

Being ‘afraid of the dentist’ may mean different things to different people. It will probably help if you work out just what it is that worries you most. Maybe the sounds and smells bring back memories of bad experiences as a child, or make you think that having treatment will hurt. The good news is that more and more dentists now understand their patients’ fears. They realise that kindness and gentleness can do a lot to make dental treatment an acceptable, normal part of life.

Why is root canal treatment needed?2022-02-06T19:46:10+03:00

If the pulp becomes infected, the infection may spread through the root canal system of the tooth. This may eventually lead to an abscess. An abscess is an inflamed area in which pus collects and can cause swelling of the tissues around the tooth. The symptoms of an abscess can range from a dull ache to severe pain, and the tooth may be tender when you bite. If root canal treatment is not done, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out.

What is a functional brace?2022-02-06T20:42:42+03:00

It is sometimes possible to change the way the jaws grow, using a functional brace. This works by using the power of your jaw muscles and can help with certain types of problem.
