Dental Check-Ups

By receiving a dental check-up every six months our dental professionals can help to safeguard your smile.

Protecting the health and appearance of your smile

The team here at Precise Dental Surgery recommend our patients visit our practice every six months for their dental check-up. Not only are regular dental check-ups beneficial for keeping your teeth looking good, there are also numerous overall health benefits. Our gentle team can examine the different elements of your smile from our Beaumont Hills, Edgecliff and Kellyville Village locations.

Benefits of regular dental check-ups

  • Prevent the build-up of plaque which causes bad breath.
  • Potential dental issues can be quickly identified before they progress to a more serious and painful oral concern that could require surgery or permanent treatment options.
  • Gum disease, which causes painful toothaches and can lead to infection of the gum and jawbone, can be prevented.
  • Cavities and broken fillings can be addressed. If left untreated, these can result in the need for root canals, gum surgery or the needless removal of your teeth.
  • Potential oral cancers can be identified which can be highly curable if treated early.

During your dental check-up

Upon entering our practice our friendly staff will take every measure to make you feel comfortable and at ease, in and out of the dental chair. After you relax into our dental chair one of our dental professionals will discuss your oral health and your oral hygiene routine with you. One of our skilled dentists will then perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and soft tissues in your mouth.

During your consultation we can also perform an x-ray to help identify any potentially harmful conditions that may be in the early stages of development, such as decay. By assessing the health of the teeth, gums and soft tissues externally and internally with an x-ray we can ensure that your smile is healthy.

Dental hygiene

In addition to a six monthly check-up with our dental professionals, we advise our patients to all maintain a sound dental hygiene routine. Ensuring that you perform a thorough oral hygiene routine is paramount to safeguarding your smile and your overall dental health. Essential parts of your dental hygiene should include:

  • Cleaning teeth
  • Removing plaque
  • Flossing
  • Gum maintenance
  • Tongue cleaning

Your tongue, teeth, gums and soft tissues, as well as your jawbone, each play a unique role in maintaining your overall dental health. It is this unique role that makes it essential that each and every part of your smile is functioning healthily. This creates a harmonic balance within your dental health that can also promote wider wellbeing.

A dental partnership

Our dental professionals endeavour to make a healthy partnership with all of their patients. This partnership can allow our team to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment. By facilitating this familiarity we can also help to ensure that our patients feel comfortable when discussing the potential treatments available to them, as well as understanding that we will always suggest the most suitable treatment for your dental health.

Frequently asked questions

What is Pola Whitening?

Pola whitening is an effective teeth whitening product that we use here at Precise Dental Surgery to help ensure our patients can smile with confidence. We provide in-chair and take home teeth whitening treatments.

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are small thin porcelain shells that are placed directly on top of your teeth. They can eliminate gaps between teeth, tooth discolouration and broken / chipped teeth.

What are Dental Crowns?

Like veneers, dental crowns are made of porcelain and act as a cap or crown for your teeth. They are often combined with dental bridges to replace missing teeth.

When should my child start seeing the dentist?

We recommend your child starts visiting the dentist from an early age, preferably when they are around 7 years old.

What is the difference between conventional braces and Invisalign?

There are many differences between Invisalign and conventional braces. For example, with Invisalign you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing as Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are also removable meaning you can brush and floss as you would normally – this is something you cannot do with conventional braces. Despite this, conventional braces can be a more suitable option for those with more subnational orthodontic concerns.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are widely considered the modern solution to missing teeth and dentures. Replace missing teeth with dental implants which act and feel like normal teeth. They consist of a titanium screw-like post which is implanted into the jawbone. The implant will then bond with your jawbone to provide stimulation and support for a dental crown or bridge.

What is a root canal?

The root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. Root canal treatment is recommended for patients with infected tooth pulps. The best indication of infection is severe dental pain or sensitivity.

How can you restore my smile?

Advancements in dental technology allow us to completely restore a patient’s smile. There are a variety of treatments that may be suggested. We recommend you visit our practice and schedule in a dental consultation. This allows us to assess your dental health and develop a plan of action to ensure you have healthy teeth for life.

My wisdom teeth are causing pain. Should I have them removed?

Because often modern jaws are not big enough to accommodate these extra teeth, in the majority of cases we do recommend they are removed. We recommend you come into our practice for a thorough examination to determine the path we take in ensuring your dental health.

I am afraid of the dentist. Do you offer virtually pain free dentistry?

For anxious patients, we provide a number of pain management options including happy gas and sleep dentistry to ensure that these patients can receive the dental work they need. To learn more please visit our sleep dentist page.

How often should I visit the dentist for a dental check-up?

We recommend you visit our practice every 6 months for your dental check-up and fluoride treatment. This way minors dental issues can be addressed before they potentially become major problems.
