Check Up
Generally your initial consultation, your dentist will begin with a clinical examination which will involve an oral examination of your teeth, previous restorations, your gum and soft tissue. They might also recommend you take 2 diagnostic x-rays and 1 panoramic x-ray, to examine early lesions/caries, injection in the jaw which may not be visible to the naked eye, and which at an early stage may not have developed symptoms.
Scale and Clean
Your dentist will generally do a preventive cleaning, to remove built up amounts of calculus (also know as tartar), plaque and stains from the teeth surfaces. If you do not remove plaque and calculus routinely, it create an acidic, toxic environment around the teeth which will cause decay on the tooth and may possibly lead to gum disease/bleeding gums.

How often do you need to see your dentist for a check-up and clean:
Prevention is always better than cure, and thus it is generally recommended that you visit the dentist every 6 months, to maintain optimum oral health.
Dental fillings are used to restore worn or damaged teeth and treat tooth decay
There are two types of restorations

1) Metal Restorations / Amalgam
