Dental Checkups at Parramatta Dental Clinic

Most oral health problems are preventable. That’s why we recommend regular checkups, scale and cleans for each of our patients. During your visit we’ll strategise on ways to reduce the risk of gum disease, tooth decay and other common dental concerns.

During Your Scale and Clean

At your checkup, we’ll scale and clean your teeth to remove tartar or plaque buildup that’s accumulated since your last visit. Then we’ll polish your smile so that it’s free of surface stains, for a smoother and brighter appearance.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer is a deadly disease that is difficult to diagnose. As your oral health provider, we’re able to screen for precancerous and pathological tissues on a regular basis, allowing for quicker diagnosis. The sooner oral cancer is detected, the greater the chance of recovery.

Will I Need X-rays?

Digital X-rays make it possible to see areas inside of your mouth that aren’t visible during an exam. We use them on a periodic basis to screen for cavities, bone loss, abscesses, cracked teeth and orthodontic concerns. They’re safe and convenient, ensuring the best experience for you and your family.

Know the Signs of Gum Disease

Regular scale and cleans help to reduce the risk of periodontal (gum) disease. Since tartar buildup accumulates under the gumline, it can lead to infection and permanent structural damage. Some of the symptoms of periodontitis include:

• Bleeding gums
• Bad breath
• Swelling
• Tooth mobility
• Gum recession
• Tooth movement
• Gaps between teeth
