Dental Check-up and Clean

For a happy and healthy smile

Two key steps to achieving and maintaining your best possible oral health are keeping up with regular dental check-ups and excellent oral hygiene. Our oral health plays a big role in our overall well being, so it pays in more ways than one to take good care of your teeth and gums. Our team at Pennant Hills Dental Centre is here to help you prevent tooth decay and reduce your risk of gum disease every step of the way.

Seeing your Pennant Hills dentist regularly for a routine dental check-up allows them to track your dental health and spot any potential issues while they’re still minor problems and easy to treat. During your routine dental check-up, you’ll also spend time with our wonderful oral hygienist who’ll give your teeth and gums a deep clean, leaving you with a fresh mouth and sparkling smile.

With the help of our gentle and caring dental team and our quality dental treatments, achieving your best possible oral health and maintaining it for a lifetime can be easy!

What to expect during a dental check-up appointment

Having a dental check-up is a straightforward and comfortable process. Generally, when visiting our Pennant Hills dentists for a check-up and clean appointment, you can expect the following five key steps:

At Pennant Hills Dental Centre, we listen to any concerns you have with your teeth and your current oral health before conducting a thorough oral examination and assessment. Your dentist will perform a manual and visual screening to check the health of your teeth, bite and surrounding gums and soft tissue to identify signs of potential concerns.

If you’re new to our practice or don’t have current dental x-rays less than 12 months old, your dentist will probably suggest you have a dental x-ray done at your check-up appointment to update your records.

A dental x-ray can help your dentist better evaluate your dental health. It can provide clear insight into what’s happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums. Not only does this allow your dentist a clear picture of the health of your teeth and gums, but your dentist can also assess your tooth roots, jaw placement and bone composition. It’s an ideal way to find and treat dental problems early in their development.

Your smile is uniquely yours and plays a key role throughout your life. While there are countless ways to preserve oral health and the natural beauty of your smile, dental treatments that worked for someone else may not suit your dental needs. At Pennant Hills Dental Centre, our dentists can help establish a personalised dental care plan specifically for you, your teeth, and your smile. 

Not all dental care plans involve major treatments. Many personalised dental treatment plans involve enhancing your dental health through non-invasive options, such as routine cleaning or getting advice for improving your at-home dental hygiene.

Next, our gentle dental hygienist will give your teeth and gums a good clean! Professional dental cleaning involves removing plaque (the soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and the tartar and calculus deposits that have built up over and in between your teeth over time. Routine dental scaling and polishing is a procedure that removes all the plaque, tartar, including any stains on the surface of your teeth. 

For continued dental health and for the prevention of gum disease, it’s best to have a scale and polish every six months. Professional teeth cleaning is typically done as part of your dental check-up appointment.

Fluoride is a mineral that can prevent tooth decay. Fluoride treatments can help to strengthen your enamel and protect your teeth against damage from plaque. Fluoride has been an essential component of healthy teeth for decades, as it supports healthy tooth enamel and fights the bacteria that can harm your teeth and gums. Upon completion of your oral examination and professional teeth cleaning, your dental hygienist will apply a fluoride gel or other fluoride product to your teeth.

The importance of regular dental check-ups

Our general dentists in Pennant Hills are not only here to help you solve dental problems, but also here to help you prevent them. Routine dental check-ups can leave you with a beautiful, clean smile and help to ensure you can achieve and maintain optimal teeth and gum health. Routine check-ups can prevent plaque and tartar build-up and reduce your risk of tooth decay. Regular dental visits can also help keep gum disease at bay. Maintaining good oral hygiene habits at home is fantastic, but not enough to make sure that your mouth remains healthy for the long term.

At Pennant Hills Dental Centre, your and your family’s dental health is important to us. We’re here to show all our patients that routine dental check-ups needn’t be stressful or unenjoyable experiences. Together, we can keep you smiling for life!
