Preventative Checkups at Dental Link

Keeping Smiles Healthy

At Dental Link, our Wembley Downs, Sorrento and Doubleview family dentists believe that prevention is far better than any cure.

When it comes to dental diseases, our preventative care services can help ensure that you don’t need major surgery. Some of the most common problems that we assist you in avoiding include tooth decay and gum disease. Both are completely preventable! Unfortunately, however, they can lead to serious health problems if overlooked. By paying close attention to your oral health now, you can be sure to save time and money later on.Doubleview Dental Hygiene

Scheduling Your Next Checkup With Us

We recommend routine preventative visits to screen for problems before they start. We’ll also work with you to discuss healthy oral habits you can implement that will keep you smiling.

Book An Appointment

Most of our healthy patients benefit from a checkup every six months. During these visits with our hygienists, we provide essential preventative therapies such as:

  • Comprehensive exams and x-rays
  • Scale and polish
  • Fissure sealants for children
  • Splints for night grinding
  • Mouth guards for sports protection
  • Fluoride treatments to combat decay
  • Screening for periodontal disease
  • Screening for oral cancer

When Was Your Last Scale and Clean?

A scale and clean is what’s commonly known as a thorough dental cleaning. Once plaque is allowed to build up, it turns into a harder substance called calculus that cannot be removed with your usual brushing and flossing. A scale and clean is necessary to remove it, preventing more severe tooth and gum problems from occurring.

These visits are simple and easy in the capable hands of our experienced team, and they should be done biyearly for children and adults alike (though some may require a higher frequency if they have issues present such as gum disease).

If it’s been longer than six months since your last checkup, contact Dental Link today to schedule a visit at one of our three convenient locations.
