Maintaining Healthy Smiles

Preventative DentistryAt 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!

Scheduling Your Next Checkup With Us

We recommend routine preventative visits to screen for problems before they start. Think of coming in for regular visits like taking your car in for oil changes at regular intervals. Doing so can help your vehicle run better and prevent costly repairs. Likewise, seeing your dentist every six months may prevent serious and potentially costly problems.

At your visits, we’ll also work with you to discuss healthy oral habits you can implement that will keep you smiling.
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
