Visit our clinic in Leura village, located in the beautiful Blue Mountains, for a comprehensive oral examination and a professional clean.
An oral examination is crucial for maintaining dental health. It is a proven preventative health initiative against oral disease and tooth decay. Regular checkups allow us to ensure we stay ahead of any developing issues with your teeth and gums thus preventing costly treatments later on. We may need to take x-rays to identify any dental issues, not obvious visually. Generally, it’s good to visit us every 6 months so problems will be detected earlier and any treatment needed will then be more conservative.
A regular teeth cleaning every six months by a dental hygienist is ideal for keeping your mouth healthy. Our dental hygienist will carefully remove any plaque and tartar that has accumulated since your last visit, leaving your teeth as clean as possible. The scale and clean visit usually finishes with a fluoride treatment.
Fluoride works by restoring minerals to tooth surfaces where bacteria may have invaded the enamel. Fluoride cannot remove decay but, can help in the process of providing a stronger surface to your teeth; it can help stop the decay from penetrating into the deeper part of teeth (the dentin). It can also inhibit the growth of harmful oral bacteria and so prevent cavities as well.
Following your appointment with us, we’ll provide you with a personalised treatment plan (if required) with a clear outline of any costs you may incur for future dental treatment.
