Check Up & Clean – Preventative Dentistry
CHECK-UP & CLEAN - PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY
At our Mona Vale dental practice, we’re big on preventative dentistry. Prevention is always better than cure! Having a thorough check-up and clean allows us to assess your whole mouth, checking for any potential signs of dental issues.
Our dentists generally recommend that you visit us on a 6-monthly basis for a check-up and clean. This means we can monitor your oral health and detect any issues early on.
A routine check-up and clean usually consists of the following:
Updating your medical records if need be.
Making note of any concerns you may have with your current oral health and discussing these with you.
A comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and soft tissue in your mouth.
Depending on when you had your last dental X-rays, they may need updating. We offer digital X-rays which allow for immediate assessment.
Discussion of the findings of your oral assessment with your dentist and, if needed, being presented with a personalised treatment plan.
A scale, polish and fluoride treatment, during which your mouth will get a good clean to remove any build-up of plaque and tartar.
