What to expect on your first general dental appointment
On your first general dental appointment with us you will get a full examination of your teeth and gums. We will also clean your teeth and remove plaque. We check for any fillings in your teeth, tooth decay and tooth sensitivity. If required, x-rays can be taken as it can show us what is happening under the surface of your teeth and gums. X-rays can also be used to check wisdom teeth and any root problems.
Some of our common general dental checkups include:
It’s important to look after children’s teeth and protect their general health and wellbeing. Children can visit a dentist as early as 2 years old to detect any problems. Visiting a dentist while they are young can help children get used to having their teeth checked. It’s also important to check your children’s teeth for any early development problems. We bulk bill all services for eligible children and teenagers.
Gum disease or Periodontal disease is the most common cause of tooth loss. Did you know that 60% of Australian Adults will have some form of gum disease? You may not know you have gum disease as it doesn’t hurt until it develops further and can result in missing teeth. Common causes of gum disease include the build-up of plaque and tartar on teeth. Common signs that you may have gum disease include bleeding when brushing your teeth, swollen gums, bad breath, loose teeth and gaps appearing in your teeth.
Our dental practice uses white fillings so that your tooth looks natural. White fillings can be either composite resin or porcelain inlay. Continue to look after your teeth with proper brushing and flossing to avoid further fillings.
Wisdom teeth may not grow properly as there is not enough space in the jaw. When wisdom teeth push against other teeth, this can cause pain and discomfort. If you experience pain from your wisdom teeth, book an appointment with our dentist Dr Ron. If the wisdom teeth go unchecked they can cause damage to other teeth.
