At Sandhurst Family Dental clinic, we offer our customers a family dentistry experience that is comfortable, and informative.
Regular Check Ups and Hygiene
Regular checkups are so important! When you get checked regularly, you can maintain healthy gum and teeth so they are working at their optimal level. Regular dental visits will help you catch any potential oral cancers. If caught early, these type of cancers are highly curable. More commonly, you can prevent the discomfort of gum disease, which infects the gums and the bone. Also, regular check ups allow for early detection of cavities. If left untreated, cavities can result in root canals, gum surgery and removal of teeth.
On a superficial level, regular hygiene/cleaning appointments prevent the build-up of plaque on and between your teeth and even the gums. Doing this will reduce the onset of bad breath. Statistics from the Oral Health Foundation show that 85% of people with persistent bad breath can attribute it to a dental problem and low dental appointment attendance.
So how often should you go for checkups and cleanings with your dentist? A good rule of thumb is once every six months – providing that you have not experienced any sensitivity, pain or discomfort anywhere in your mouth.
We understand the importance of giving young children the knowledge and tools they need to have a lifetime of dental health. Step by step, we explain everything to you and your child to understand what is going on during appointments. We build open and honest relationships with our patients to alleviate any fears and anxieties. Our clinic is a fun, modern environment for our patients so they can look forward to coming into the office. If you’re curious about when your child should come for their first visit, we have an answer for that!
