Your Bi-annual Checkup at Q Dental Bulimba

young mother and childWhen you schedule a checkup with our Bulimba family dentist every six months, you can feel confident that we’re closely monitoring your oral health for signs of new cavities or infections that have developed since your last visit. Thanks to earlier diagnosis, you can enjoy less-invasive treatments that are healthier for your smile and kinder to your budget.

What to Expect

We ask that you plan to be at our office for about 45 minutes for your checkup appointment. During your visit, our dentist will thoroughly assess the health of your teeth and gums, before cleaning away the plaque, tartar and stain that has accumulated since the last visit. Diagnostic X-rays may be needed as well, to evaluate areas between the teeth and around the roots.

If you need any treatment, we’ll present you with a customised care plan so that you can consider all of the options available.

Thanks to preventative techniques like cleanings, fluoride, sealants and other resources, we can help you reduce the risk of problems like premature tooth loss, sensitivity, cavities and gum disease.

How to Care for Your Smile

A great home care routine is just as important as scheduling your checkup every six months. Here are some key points to keep in mind:

Brush at least twice each day, for two minutes. Use a fluoridated toothpaste and brush along your gumlines, taking care to clean just one or two teeth at a time.

Don’t forget to clean between your teeth. Use floss to clean the areas where teeth touch side-by-side, as well as just under the gumlines. A water flosser is a great alternative if flossing is a challenge.

Alert us of any symptoms. If your gums feel tender or bleed easily, be sure to let us know. Be aware of tooth sensitivity, which can be a warning sign of decay.
