Maintain optimal oral health and function through our comprehensive dental services.
What Is a Full Dental Cleaning?
A full dental cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis, is a thorough professional procedure conducted by a dental hygienist or dentist.
Full dental cleaning involves the removal of plaque and tartar from teeth surfaces, particularly in hard-to-reach areas, using specialised tools. The teeth are then polished to eliminate surface stains and enhance smoothness.
Gum health is assessed by measuring the spaces between gums and teeth, and an oral examination is performed to identify potential issues such as gum disease, cavities, or oral cancer. X-rays might be taken, and oral hygiene guidance is provided, tailored to your needs.
How Often Should You Get a Dental Cleaning?
For most people, it’s generally recommended to have a dental cleaning every six months. This regular schedule allows for effective maintenance of oral health. However, the optimal frequency of dental cleanings can vary based on individual factors such as your oral hygiene practices, overall oral health, risk factors for dental issues, and any ongoing treatments.
Some individuals might benefit from more frequent cleanings, such as those with a history of gum disease, extensive dental work, smoking, diabetes, a weakened immune system, or a tendency to develop plaque buildup quickly. Your dentist or dental hygienist will assess your specific situation and recommend an appropriate cleaning schedule that best addresses your oral health needs.

What to Expect During a Routine Check-Up and Clean
During a routine dental check-up and cleaning, you can expect a series of steps aimed at assessing your oral health and providing thorough care. Here’s what typically happens during the appointment:
During the medical examination phase of a routine check-up and cleaning, the dentist or dental hygienist begins by assessing your oral health. They meticulously examine your mouth, teeth, and gums, searching for indications of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other oral health concerns. Additionally, X-rays might be taken to unveil hidden issues like cavities between teeth or bone loss. This comprehensive evaluation forms the foundation for the rest of the appointment.
The cleaning process involves a series of steps aimed at restoring and maintaining your oral health. The dental professional starts by meticulously removing plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth’s surfaces, paying special attention to hard-to-reach areas. Afterward, your teeth are polished to eliminate surface stains and enhance smoothness.
Flossing is performed between your teeth to ensure thorough cleaning, and a fluoride rinse might be used to strengthen your teeth and offer protection against cavities. This cleaning process not only rejuvenates your teeth’s appearance but also helps prevent future plaque accumulation.
Following the cleaning process, the dental professional conducts a post-cleaning examination to discuss their findings with you. They address any concerns that emerged during the examination and offer recommendations for sustaining and enhancing your oral hygiene regimen.
If any dental issues are identified, such as cavities or gum disease, suitable treatments are suggested, and future appointments may be scheduled accordingly. Additionally, you receive tailored advice on maintaining good oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing techniques.
Before leaving, you’ll schedule your next routine check-up and cleaning appointment, typically scheduled around six months later. This dedicated aftercare phase ensures that you maintain a healthy and vibrant smile between appointments.

“Fantastic staff. I am a truly anxious patient, and the receptionist, Frances, who took my first contact call, I felt safe. Dr Reza Sunny was so patient with me, allowing me to do tapping when I was overwhelmed, never losing focus, totally understanding. Incredibly kind. Incredibly good dentist. I had cleaning, filling, and removal of a broken molar. Even though I may still get anxious I feel safe returning when needed.”
“This is my first time ever to have a positive comment about a dentist.
I was astonished about the successful outcome of my dental procedure. Thank you Casey and Dr Reza, what a professional and dedicated team. I mentioned to my partner about it, and we went back to the clinic and she made an appointment for herself on the spot. I do not hesitate to recommend to any one the services of Moorooka Dental Care. Thank you all for your friendly attention, starting from the reception all way to the manager. Looking forwards to see you again.”
“Can't thank the team at Moorooka dental care enough for an amazing friendly experience! I have now seen both Dr Reza Sunny for general cosmetics work including fillings to teeth whitening, clean up/check ups. Very good at explaining and being upfront with procedures process and Dr Zaheer who removed both my bottom wisdoms last week did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. They even went the extra mile to call up and check up on me a few days later to see how my recovery was going. 10/10 for service and pricing. Thanks”
“Moorooka Dental Care is one of the best dental practices I've been to. The team is friendly, the office is modern and clean. I have had the pleasure to be cared by Dr. Zaheer and Dr. Reza.

I highly recommend them!”
