Importance of regular dental visits

Regular visits are of vital important to your oral health and the possible prevention of major dental work in the future. Most health funds will cover more of the cost on treatments needed if your record shows that you have had your regular examinations and cleans.

During a dental check-up, your River Street Smiles dentist will look at your teeth, gums, lips, tongue and saliva to see if they are all healthy. Regular dental check-ups are important so that existing concerns can be quickly and effectively treated. They will then assess and record important information on your personal patient record, including your medical and dental history; the condition of your teeth, gums, lips, tongue and saliva; signs of tooth decay; and preventative care such as polishing of fillings and cleaning teeth.

These appointments are the key to a happy healthy mouth!
