It is important to attend dental check-ups on a regular basis to help detect and resolve problems related to the wellbeing of your dental health keeping your teeth, mouth and gums healthy.
Although in some cases patients may need a scale, clean and polish on a monthly basis, generally it is recommended that a dental clean should be done every six months.
The following options are available in our range of restorative dental treatments:
- Dental Restorations
- Crown and Bridge Work
- Implant Supported Dentures
- Root Canal Treatment
The root canal procedure takes place over two to three visits. A slight tenderness can be experienced after the first visit; however, this will subside. Thereafter, no discomfort or pain can be felt, as the tooth will be anaesthetised for treatment to take place.
Primary teeth are the first set of teeth that develop in the mouth when you are a child. It is also known as ‘milk teeth’. You may develop primary teeth before your permanent teeth form when you are much older.
It is important to care for your primary teeth from the moment they start developing. This is to prevent them from decaying and to prevent you from having crooked, permanent teeth or gum disease later in life.
A child’s first visit to the dentist should be when the child’s first tooth arrives, which could be between the ages of 4 months to 12 months but no later than the age of one or two.
Once the first dental check-up and clean is done, it is very important for children to attend regular dental check-ups at least every three to six months to identify any problems associated with the child’s oral health and treat it quickly. Dentists will also be able to train children to follow a good cleaning routine to improve and maintain their oral health from a young age.
