What Is Good Oral Hygiene? Brushing our teeth twice a day using a soft toothbrush with fluoride toothpaste, flossing and mouth rinse, this is daily preventive care for healthy teeth and gums. Good oral health is important to your overall well-being.

A regular dental check-up is also equally important because they help keep your teeth and gums healthy. One should have a regular dental visit at least every 6 months or once a year. Prevention is better than cure, so when was the last time you went to a dentist for a scaling and dental check?

Recently Auntie Lilly and hubby went for our long overdue oral dental check-up at IMU Oral Health Centre at International Medical University located Bukit Jalil in Kuala Lumpur. This centre offers dental services by dentists and their undergraduate dental students as part of their clinical training prior to being a professional dentist.   

My hubby was charged RM 15 only for a full medical check, including scaling and polishing while I paid RM 30 for scaling, polishing with root planing.  They have two sessions in a day either at 9am or the 2pm slot. Be prepared to spend at least 2 hours or more and be patient with the dental students who are still learning the ropes to treating patients.

From my personal experience, I find them quite slow but very delicate and precise when they are treating me while cleaning my teeth. The session usually starts with a Q&A session to record your overall health history and followed by a complete dental check - conditions of each of your tooth and gums too.

Don't worry that you are treated by students as they are fully supervised by their lecturers (also a dentist too). The student will identify your oral conditions and recommended the appropriate treatments to their supervising lecturer before proceeding the treatment. Dun worry ya, you are in good hands! 

Scaling & Root Planing

In my fifties now, my teeth are ageing (with gaps in between my tooth) and I required root planing apart from the routine teeth scaling to remove the plaque and tartar. Root planing is deep cleaning done to prevent and treat gum disease like chronic periodontal disease. I google this up and it meant -  getting your roots planed, cleaned, scraped, and disinfected! Check this video out about root planing: askthedentist.com/what-is-a-root-planing 

Well, that's it... remember to go for your regular dental check for healthy teeth and gums! Auntie Lilly getting old and forgetful and has neglected my dental oral hygiene for the past one year.

Gotta get back in the track not to lose any tooth of mine, so I'm going to put a reminder in my calendar to go for a regular check once every 6 months now onwards!    

IMU Oral Health Centre for Students Treatments is open on Weekdays only with 2 sessions a day in the morning & afternoon, call for an appointment at 03 - 8656 7228 or 2731 7617. 😍

  2. Is scaling and polishing good for teeth?
    Scaling and polishing removes deposits such as plaque and calculus ( tartar ) from tooth surfaces. Over time, the regular removal of these deposits may reduce gingivitis (a mild form of gum disease) and prevent progression to periodontitis (severe gum disease).Jain Dental Clinic promises to deliver quality dental care treatment in Indirapuram, Dentist in East Delhi
