How often do I have to have an exam and clean, and do I need an x-ray?
Our dentists recommend exams and teeth cleans regularly and according to your oral health. During these appointments, you will receive an examination and an oral cancer screen, which may be more treatable if caught in the earliest stages.
Cleans are important because stubborn tartar and bacteria cannot always be cleared away through brushing and flossing alone. Our hygienist has equipment and technologies available to help clear away bacteria that may lead to gum disease, cavities and infections. Our hygienist will also give you tips to help you maintain your teeth and gums better between visits to our New Lambton, NSW dental clinic.
If you have a specific dental issue, one of our dentists or hygienists may recommend a custom treatment schedule to help keep your teeth and gums in good order. This may include extra dental cleans and specific target therapies.
At New Lambton Family Dental, our goal is to keep you and your family members smiling through the ages, and this means regular preventive dentistry.
Periodically, one of our dentists may recommend an x-ray if there are no recent x-rays on file or if a dental issue is suspected.
If you haven’t been to your dentist in a while, we would love to welcome you back. If it’s time to schedule your exam and clean, we anticipate your call.
