IS IT TIME FOR A CHECK-UP AND CLEAN? A QUICK WALK-THROUGH

March 13, 2019
Preventive Dentistry

It’s easy to postpone necessary preventive dental appointments when work or home life is busy. Your dental cleaning might enter your mind, and you make a note to yourself to call your dentist in North Curl Curl, and then your attention moves elsewhere.

As a general rule, most people require twice-yearly dental cleans to keep their teeth and gums healthy, but there are some situations when more frequent cleans could be beneficial. For patients recovering from advanced gum disease, it’s essential to monitor that the gums are healing properly. For this reason, our dentist or hygienist might recommend cleanings three or four times per year.

What to Expect at Your Dental Appointment

If it’s been too long since your last preventive dental visit, don’t worry. We will help you get back on schedule.

Check-up – Our dentist will check the health of the teeth, gums, dental restorations and bite. We also take routine x-rays to identify decay, which is much more affordable and more straightforward when treated early.

Your dental clean – Because every patient has different needs, we customise your dental clean to meet your current needs. In most cases, it includes a scale and polish. For patients who need periodontal treatment, a deeper cleaning will be necessary.

Kid’s dental clean – For children with a higher risk of developing caries (decay), we also offer fissure sealants and fluoride varnish as added preventive measures to protect kids from cavities.

Patient education – Dentists and hygienists are not just experts at cleaning teeth; they also provide educational information and tips to help patients take better care of their teeth at home.

Consultation – Of we identify anything that requires your attention, we will go over your conditions and treatment options so that you can take the best care of your smile.
