Dental Check-ups in Dulwich Hill

Dr David Bashout talking with patientThe team at Wardell Dental Clinic welcomes all ages. We’re here to help you improve and maintain your good oral health. We have three dentists at our practice who perform scale and cleans or checkups. At most clinics, you would see a dental hygienist for these services. By having a dentist with you, we can provide a thorough examination and can complete any necessary treatment straightaway.

It’s better to prevent problems from occurring than deal with them once they’ve become serious. This saying holds true for most things in life, and dental care is no exception.

We encourage you to schedule dental checkups every six months.
By seeing us regularly, we can catch any potential issues before they can get more complex.

Your Comprehensive Checkups

Oral Health Asset iTeroAt your dental checkups, we will perform several different evaluations of your oral and overall health:

  • An examination of every tooth
  • An assessment of your gums
  • An oral cancer screening
  • A removal of the buildup on teeth and gums
  • A polish of your teeth
  • A fluoride rinse
  • Oral hygiene advice

If we feel that you could benefit from product recommendations or a discussion of your brushing and flossing techniques, we’ll be sure to do so. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions.

Why Do You Need Dental Checkups?

It’s important that you brush and floss to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Though these actions are vital, it’s still necessary to see your dentist at regular intervals. The buildup that sits on your teeth between brushings will harden and form tartar. Tartar cannot be removed with your toothbrush or floss. Only a dental professional can take away this harder form of buildup. If you don’t have it treated, it can lead to tooth decay, infection, gum disease, tooth loss and bone loss.
