Regular Check Ups
Minto Dental Surgery is dedicated to promoting good dental health to both children and adults, so they have the best chance to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile for life.
Regular dental check-ups can prevent the need for major dental work in the future and is far more cost effective than allowing problems to go on undetected.
It is almost never too early to get into the healthy habit of six-monthly dental visits. Children as young as three years of age are advised to visit the dentist for a regular check-up and clean so that they become familiarised with their local Dental Care Centre to help maximise their chances of achieving lifelong dental health.
What happens at a Dental Check-Up?
The dentist and dental assistant will introduce themselves and ask if you have any specific concerns or issues with your teeth, gums or appearance of your smile. Next they will assess the current condition of your teeth and gums.
The dentist may request that digital dental x-rays be taken of your teeth and gums during your check-up.
As part of your ongoing dental maintenance program, your dentist may offer a scale and clean to remove tartar build-ups. A professionally applied fluoride application will assist in reduction of dental decay and decrease the sensitivity of your teeth.
Minto Dental Surgery is committed to the promotion of good dental health and the education of all patients to help them achieve a beautiful, healthy smile for life.
