Dentist on Waverley is passionate about making good dental health available for both adults and children. Rather than visiting the dentist only when you have a problem, we strongly recommend that you have regular dental check-ups and clean. Scheduling a check-up every 6 months is one of the best steps to ensure your teeth stay healthy for life.
We all brush our teeth – but not all the plaque can be removed completely at home. Therefore adults and children should see their dentist for a regular check-up and clean every 6 months. In some situations, more frequent care may be necessary, as is the case with smoking, diabetes, pregnancy, advanced periodontal and gum disease and certain other medical conditions.
During the examination, all your teeth will be checked together with the gums, soft tissues, and jaw. The inside of your mouth including the tongue and back of the throat is also examined for normal colour and shape. We take x-rays to check that there is no hidden decay between the teeth and under your fillings. We’ll assess whether you need any further treatment and discuss these options with you.
Attending your regular dental check-ups will detect any early problems such as gum disease, oral cancer and new and existing cavities. This is a smart investment in your health that can help you avoid greater damage, and save time and money in the long term.
Once our dentist has gained a comprehensive overview of your oral health, they’re going to begin the cleaning component of your appointment. This simply involves cleaning and polishing your teeth before applying solutions (such as fluoride) to prevent decay.
Patients will also receive helpful advice about their oral health care habits, assisting them on their journey to optimal dental health. After all, effective oral care begins at home and a dedicated approach to the necessary routine is essential.
Dentist on Waverley offers highly-trained dentists, the most advanced technology, and a professional and friendly environment that’s suitable for the whole family. With our safe, efficient and affordable dental check-ups, you can ensure your good oral health – as well as your peace of mind. Contact us today on (03) 9560 2702 or Book an Appointment Online.
