Checkups and Cleans Double Bay

Preventative Dentistry at its Finest

Checkups and cleans Double BayTo keep your teeth and gums healthy, we recommend a professional scale, clean and exam every six months. These preventative care appointments allow us to intercept common dental concerns early when they’re typically reversible.

During your appointment, we’ll screen for conditions such as

  • Periodontal disease
  • TMJ disorder
  • Oral cancer
  • Tooth decay
  • Leakage around existing restorations
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Worn or eroding enamel

After your cleaning, we’ll discuss any concerns and answer questions that you may have. If there are particular areas that require more attention or a modified oral hygiene plan, we will work through those with you at this appointment.

The Importance of Preventative Visits

Keeping your teeth clean and healthy can drastically lower your risk of gum disease and tooth loss. A professional scale and clean lifts away calcified buildup as well as soft biofilm from areas that brushing or flossing don’t reach. Afterwards, a gentle polish quickly buffs away surface stains that have accumulated since your last cleaning.

Thanks to regular cleans, it’s possible to reverse gum infections like gingivitis before they progress into aggressive periodontal disease. As we discuss tailored oral hygiene practices, you’ll have better information to keep your smile as healthy as possible.

Preventative Care for the Entire Family

As a family-friendly practice, we’re by your side to help everyone in your household enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles. We make it simple for parents and children to book visits on the same day, saving you valuable time. By working closely with your family, we can better attend to your individual needs, concerns and health backgrounds.

Diagnostic X-rays

Digital X-rays allow us to see inside and around teeth, where infections or disease may lie hidden. Because common issues like cavities or bone loss cannot always be seen with the naked eye, diagnostic X-rays are an essential part of your regular exams.

Thanks to low levels of radiation and the opportunity for earlier diagnosis, these images allow for less-invasive therapies that are better for your smile.

Fissure Sealants and Fluoride

Combatting tooth decay is easier than ever with non-invasive fissure sealants and fluoride treatments. Perfect for children and available to adults upon request, fissure sealants make hard-to-clean areas easier to care for and significantly reduce the chance of developing a cavity in the deep grooves of back teeth.

After your clean, a professional fluoride treatment remineralises weak enamel to make it more resistant to acids and bacteria, not to mention helps with sensitivity too!
