Checkups & Cleans at St. Leonards Square Dental Care

Dr Andrew with female patient At St. Leonards Square Dental Care, we are passionate about taking a preventative approach to oral health. Having regular dental checkups with us, may decrease the chances of more serious tooth and gum conditions down the track. Conditions like gum disease and root canal infections can be avoided with proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups.

Your Examination and Cleaning

The first step to enjoying a healthy, happy smile starts here. We encourage patients to have checkup and clean appointments every six months. When you see us for a dental checkup, our dentist will first do a thorough assessment of your teeth and gums. Post examination, we will do X-rays or scans (if applicable) and discuss the results with you. For your convenience, we have digital X-rays and a 3D CBCT scanner on-site.

Following your X-rays, you will then have a thorough cleaning by our gentle dentist. For routine appointments, you may not require X-rays each time. Your checkup appointment will typically go for about 30-60 minutes and you will walk away with a clean smile and a customised treatment plan if necessary. We may develop this for you following your X-rays, so you can decide if you wish to consider further treatment or improve other areas which may need attention.
