General Check-Ups

Regular Dental Check-Ups Are Essential To Lifelong Oral Health.

During a check-up your dentist will make examine your mouth for signs tooth decay, gum infections and other oral diseases. Routine dental check-ups allow dental problems to be recognised and solved in the early stages, avoiding painful and expensive experiences associated with late stage oral disease.

During your check up your dentist will likely complete a thorough clean that involves the meticulous removal of tartar or calculus (hardened plaque) from your teeth as well as a polish of your tooth surfaces. This will ensure all debris that cannot be removed from regular tooth brushing and flossing will be cleaned. To strengthen and remineralise your teeth your dentist will also provide a topical fluoride treatment that will prevent tooth decay.

Dental check-ups are recommended every 6 months.
