Six Monthly Check-up
Just like your car, your teeth need regular servicing and maintenance. Without a doubt, a healthy mouth saves you from discomforts and costly dental procedures.
A beautiful, pain-free smile can also boost your self-confidence and even increase the quality of your life.
At West Ryde Dental Clinic, we recognise the utmost importance of prevention and how it can positively affect your overall wellbeing. Six-monthly dental check-ups are the best form of dental prevention.
Gum Disease Prevention
Gum disease is a serious dental problem. It is mainly caused by a build-up of plaque and bacterial toxins that accumulates underneath the gum line. If these build-ups are not professionally removed, they can damage your gums and the jawbone that supports your teeth.
You can lose your teeth because of advanced gum disease (periodontitis). In periodontitis, the plaque and calculus already infect your bones and destroy your gums and jaw. In addition, a large portion of bone mass is lost. As a result, your teeth become loose, eventually causing them to fall out.
On a brighter note, gum disease is highly preventable. If you already have gum disease, scale and clean as well as periodontal treatments can effectively control the condition.

The Importance of the 6-Monthly Check-up
Visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleaning helps you prevent the threats of various oral health diseases such as cavities and periodontal disease. We can detect any problems early and checkups allow us to provide options to help you attain a healthy and beautiful smile.
Untreated dental problems can be life threatening. Aside from the discomfort and pain they may bring, they can also cause you to spend thousands of dollars on expensive and extensive procedures in order to remove more developed problems.
At West Ryde Dental Clinic, we believe that prevention should not be expensive. All our Preventative Care Services will remain GAP FREE for all health funds.
