Why are regular dental assessments so important?

Dental assessments provide your dental practitioner with an opportunity to clean your teeth and detect problems as early as possible. A simple filling at the right time or identifying a cavity early could spare you from needing a root canal or tooth extraction later down the track.

We recommend for patients to receive a dental assessment on a regular six monthly basis. This ensures that you receive a professional clean to effectively remove plaque build-up so that oral hygiene is maintained. It also gives our dentists more time to identify any problems before they escalate into bigger issues.

A typical dental appointment involves a careful inspection of your mouth, teeth, gums and oral tissue. Your dentist will be looking for any signs of tooth decay and cavities, loose or broken teeth, damaged tooth fillings or gum disease. This is why a regular dental visit is a necessary part of preventive dental care coupled with flossing, brushing and a healthy diet.
