Checkups at HealthPoint Dental

At HealthPoint Dental, we know that prevention is always better than cure. That’s why we recommend that all ages have regular checkups with our team. By coming in for periodic dental hygiene appointments, you can ensure that you won’t need more complex treatment in the future. We can identify any potential problems early on, addressing them immediately to restore your great oral health.

A Thorough Visit

What exactly is involved in your regular examinations? This comprehensive process involves several steps:

  • Consultation to discuss any concerns you have
  • Scale and clean that removes plaque, tartar and surface stains
  • Polish to leave your teeth sparkling
  • Evaluation of your gums for any signs of gum disease
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Examination of each individual tooth
  • X-rays, if necessary
  • Oral hygiene instruction

To wrap up your visits, we’ll talk about any brushing and flossing tips or product recommendations we have for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have dental checkups?

The frequency of your appointments will be based on your particular needs. Most people need to see us every six months. If you have an oral health concern such as gum disease, we may recommend that you come in more often. We’ll be sure to discuss the appropriate frequency of your visits with you at your first appointment with us.

Do children need to have checkups?

Yes! We provide paediatric dentistry and love seeing kids. You should bring them in for their first appointment shortly after their teeth begin to erupt. We’ll monitor the development of their teeth and they’ll become familiar with our practice and team members. Not every dentist sees children, but we are passionate about helping them develop healthy habits early in life and are happy to see them.

What if I need further treatment?

During your scale and clean/checkup Liverpool, we may uncover other issues that need to be addressed. If you need other services such as a filling, sports mouth guard or extraction, we’ll discuss it with you. You’ll receive our recommendations and can decide how to proceed. We can work with you to have your procedure done straightaway.
