It’s easy to make excuses for not getting to the dentist for a regular checkup and clean. We tell ourselves we don’t have time, or we’re afraid it might hurt, or that it’s too expensive. 

The truth is, regular dental checkups are the best way to save time, money and pain in the future..

Keeping up with check-up and clean visits once or twice a year gives your teeth the best chance of needing fewer trips to the dentist in the long run.

What does a dental check-up include?

In one visit you’ll get a full dental exam, a thorough clean and polish and fluoride treatment (for that just-been-to-the-dentist feel), x-rays and digital photos to track changes, and a treatment plan if required.

Your dentist will be able to identify any teeth that need fillings, and check for early signs of gum disease. We can also examine dental crowns or other previous work you’ve had done, and tell you if it’s still in tip-top shape.

A checkup and clean appointment includes everything we need to help you spot problems early and save you spending way too much time and money on dental problems down the track.

Why do I need to come in for regular dental check-ups?

Many people leave it too late to come in for a check and clean. Dental problems often start without pain or even discomfort, and by the time you can tell something is wrong, you may need complex, expensive treatment. Coming in once or twice a year for a check-up gives us the best chance of alerting you to any issues before they become worse. 

What will happen at my check-up?

At your check-up and clean, our team will make you comfortable, and the dentist will check your teeth very thoroughly. We will take X-rays and digital images of your teeth so we can see if there are any changes at your next check-up. Your teeth will then be cleaned and polished, and a strengthening fluoride treatment will be applied.

What if I forget to book in?

The best way to make sure you come in once or twice a year for your check-up is to let us remind you! If you give us permission, we can send you a reminder when you are due for your half-yearly check and clean. You can then book online easily for a time that suits you. 

What if the dentist finds a problem at my check-up?

Depending on what we find, we may either be able to start treatment at your check-up, or we will put together a care plan for you. We will make sure you have all the information about the issue that needs attention, including treatment options and costs.
