We highly recommend coming in for a check-up and cleaning every six months. Regular visits to our clinic allow our dentists to keep track of your oral hygiene. They’ll check to see if you have any current concerns and help you prevent future issues such as tooth decay or gum disease.
Check-ups and cleanings at EDentist Bentleigh East are quick and straightforward. We know you’re busy, so we’ll be efficient while ensuring top-class care and attention.
When you visit the office for a check-up and clean, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and surrounding gums using specialised and recommended dental treatment methods and, if necessary, may take X-rays of your teeth and jawline. With orthopantomogram(OPG) and cone-beam computed tomography(CBCT) available, we’re able to examine your upper and lower jawline and your deeper dentition to check for fractures, dislocations, infections, and root concerns.
After the examination, your dental hygienist will clean the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. They’ll then use a high-powered toothbrush and toothpaste to clean and polish your teeth. Finally, your hygienist will apply fluoride to help protect your teeth from cavities.
Your visits to the dentist’s office are more crucial than you think. While a deep clean and polish are essential, allowing the dentist to check for developing oral concerns is vital. An issue like gum disease can be painless early on yet devastating in its later stages. Your dentist can diagnose and treat such problems before they develop into tooth loss and other health conditions.
Regular check-ups can also minimise the adverse effects of plaque and tartar. The build-up of the two can result in cavities, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. If you already have a small cavity, we can fill it to prevent further discomfort and expensive treatment.
At EDentist, we strive to change how you view routine check-ups and cleanings. Rather than a dreaded appointment, we believe your visits should be comfortable, relaxing, and effective. Our staff will treat you like family while providing quality care. Our comprehensive dental service is for people of all ages, which is one more reason switching to EDentist is the right choice.
When you want a healthier and brighter smile without feeling anxious about a routine appointment, EDentist is the clinic for you.
