Older woman smiling at dentistSome come to us unsure of how often they should have dental visits. We want to know all about your medical and dental history. Combined with our evaluation of your oral health, we can determine the frequency of checkups that’s right for you. Most people can get by with having a checkup and cleaning every six months.

What Occurs During Your Checkup

Your checkup includes a thorough examination and a cleaning of your teeth. The first step is to have each tooth evaluated. One by one, we want to make sure we don’t identify any issues in your teeth. We’ll also look at every part of your gums. We’ll take X-rays to be sure that we catch any problems that can’t be seen with the naked eye.

Then, we will perform a scaling of your teeth, both with our ultrasonic scaler and by hand. Our water spraying system will get into all the nooks and crannies of your mouth, wrapping up your appointment in about 30-45 minutes.

The Difference Hand Scaling Makes

When your teeth are scaled at Campsie Family Dental, it won’t be like what you have experienced in other practices. Most dentists use an ultrasonic machine to get rid of your calculus and plaque. We do, too. It’s followed up, however, by using a handheld instrument to clean each tooth. This thorough approach ensures that we don’t miss anything! You’ll love how smooth and clean your teeth feel when you leave our clinic.

No matter which member of our team you have your appointment with, you’ll be satisfied with your experience. We’ll take our time with you, ensuring that everything is done correctly.
