At Surrey Hills Family Dental Clinic we recommend regular check-ups (every six months). We practice preventative Dentistry and educate our patients on how to best care for their dental health at home. Dental disease can be prevented with good home oral care and regular professional cleaning and check-ups. Regular professional check-ups help with early detection of dental disease; we can help reverse the progress of disease or treat before it becomes more serious.
During your dental appointment your dentist will examine your teeth for cavities as well as assess the health of your gums, in order to prevent gum disease. Your dentist will also clean your teeth by removing plaque, calculus (tartar) and staining. When required they will demonstrate on how to brush and floss correctly.
We suggest you follow these guidelines as advised by by ADA (Australian Dental Association).
