How often should I have a check up and clean?

Early detection and treatment of dental issues is key to a healthy smile. While this time period can vary from person to person, the Sandstone Point Dental team generally recommends a comprehensive oral examination and clean every six months. This is also as per recommendation by the Australian Dental Association.

By coming in for regular six monthly check up and cleans, the friendly team at Sandstone Point Dental can assist in removing dental plaque (bacteria), one of the main factors behind dental decay and gum disease. They can also assess any potential problems which, when diagnosed early can minimise the need for lengthy and costly treatment.  As with all health issues, prevention is better than cure, and this extends to your mouth too.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
