What Is a Routine Dental Checkup?

Many of us cringe at the thought of a visit to the general dentist. However, routine dental checkup in Dubai and dental cleaning are crucial to maintaining oral health. During a check-up at our Dubai clinic, we can not only clean your teeth and gums but can also look for signs of any oral health issues. If any issue is identified, we can rectify and apply the right remedy to correct the tooth problem. Gum disease is not very critical in the beginning but if it is untended, it can lead to much more severe problems. Gum disease or periodontal disease can cause loss of teeth, infections and other complications.

At Dr. Paul’s, the dental specialists in Dubai offer our patients professional dental cleaning services to detect and prevent tooth infections. Our routine dental check-up services help in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Routine Dental Check-ups at Dr. Paul’s combined with daily oral hygiene practices at home, your teeth and gums can stay healthy for a long time.

We first start by:

Step 2: The Clinical Dental Examination

Next, we examine the condition of your teeth and gums by:

  • Examining the tissues inside of your mouth
  • Check-up of your tongue
  • Checking your bite
  • Checking for any sign of tooth decay
  • Checking for broken teeth
  • Checking for damaged fillings
  • Looking for changes in the gums  
  • Checking the condition of your dental appliance

Step 3: The Dental Cleaning

The last part of the routine is the dental cleanup. The steps we follow are:

  • Check the cleanliness of your teeth and gums
  • Removing plaque and tartar
  • Teeth polishing
  • Flossing between your teeth
  • Recommend the brushing and flossing techniques

Once your examination and cleaning are done, we will give you a detailed report about the condition of your teeth and gums. We will then make the recommendations that you might need to fix your dental issues.


Patient Stories


  • What happens at your dental visit?

    At Dr Paul's, there are 2 processes that we follow for your routine dental visits. The first one is a check-up or examination which is followed by cleaning, or oral prophylaxis. We will first check for cavities. X-rays might be taken to detect cavities between your teeth. We will also check for plaque and tartar. After this, we will check your gums with a special tool to measure the depth of the spaces between your teeth and gums. Healthy gums have shallow spaces while diseased gums make the spaces deeper. We will closely examine your tongue, throat, face, head, and neck to look for any signs of swelling, redness, or possible signs of cancer. Then we do the scaling process to clean your teeth of the tartar build-up, followed by polishing to remove surface stains. The final step is flossing to ensure that the areas between your teeth are clean.

  • What is the ideal oral care home routine?

    Good dental health gives you a healthy mouth, teeth and gums and will enhance your appearance and quality of life. Follow these to ensure good oral hygiene at home:

    1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day. 
    2. Make sure you use toothpaste that contains fluoride.
    3. Floss daily.
    4. Use a mouthwash to help control plaque bacteria.

  • What you should do between each dental visit?

    Follow good oral hygiene practices between regular dental visits. You can remove plaque by brushing and flossing regularly.

  • How often should you go to the dentist?

    Have you ever wondered why the American Dental Association and your dentist recommend you come back every six months? It’s because regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. And in between those examinations, it’s important that you work to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. If you need additional help, your dentist may even suggest more frequent visits.
