Dental Check Up
Dental care for the entire family
Rochedale Central Dentist offers cost-effective dental benefits and comprehensive dental care for the entire family. Australian Dental Association recommends two dental visits a year for most patients. During typical dental check up, the dentist cleans and polishes your teeth, talks to you about oral health and answers your questions.
Why should you have a regular dental check-up?
Firstly, a regular dental check-up is necessary to protect not only your dental health but also your overall health. That is because the first indications of systemic disease like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and lupus occur in the mouth. The dentist will be the first person to find out and recommend further visits to your doctor. Secondly, your dentist will be able to guide you on the oral hygiene, nutrition and adopting the right techniques for oral health care,
What happens during a typical dental checkup?
At Rochedale Central Dentist, a comprehensive Dental Checkup involves the following:
- Our dentist will conduct an oral exam of your gums, teeth and mouth
- order x-rays if necessary
- diagnose any oral health problem
- clean and polish your teeth
- recommend further treatment if required
The dentist will also enquire about your general health and suggest ways around a problem. For example, your dentist may recommend an electric toothbrush if you are hampered in your brushing due to arthritis.
Besides, certain medications may cause dry mouth syndrome and would require your dentist to suggest that you visit your doctor. Also, for patients with prosthetic replacements such as dentures or bridges, a regular dental visit will also let the dentist examine the fitting and to make necessary adjustments.
The dentist then conducts an oral exam of your gums and teeth, diagnoses any oral health problems, orders x-rays (if necessary) and recommends treatment. Besides, early detection and treatment of dental diseases can mostly prevent extensive and expensive treatments and loss of tooth.
