Most dental problems are preventable. By scheduling regular checkups and cleans at our practice, Dr Jeremy Lung (Dentist) can routinely screen for concerns while they’re smaller and simpler to manage.
Your six-monthly checkup at Epping Family Dental will take about a half-hour from start to finish. During your visit, we’ll perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums and surrounding facial anatomy, including muscle tissue. If it’s your first appointment, we’ll also chart any existing restorations and gum levels to establish a baseline for future visits.
If needed, we’ll also take a set of digital X-rays to screen for decay, periodontal disease and bone loss.
During your scale and clean, we’ll gently remove tartar buildup and stain. That way you can reduce your risk of gum disease and decay between now and your next visit.
Following your exam and clean, we’ll perform a fluoride treatment. Fluoride helps remineralise weak enamel and prevent cavities before they start.
Gum disease causes loss of attachment tissues around your tooth roots. Left untreated, it will cause teeth to become loose or fall out on their own.
Regular checkups and cleans help prevent gum disease where it starts. It also makes it easier for you to keep your smile healthy in the years ahead.
Common symptoms of gum disease include tissue recession (long teeth) and bleeding when you brush or floss. If you suspect that you have gum disease or it’s been several months since your last checkup, be sure to visit us at your earliest opportunity.
Checkups are affordably priced at $130. If you have health coverage you can enjoy a gap-free scale and clean every six months.
