Dental Check-up and Clean

As the saying goes, prevention is better than a cure. Not many know this but most dental problems are avoidable.

With regular dental visits – what we like to call active maintenance appointments, we can identify dental conditions earlier and treat them with less complex and costly treatments. The earlier the intervention the more predictable the outcome.

No problem is ever fixed by delaying it – “You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality”. At Kareela Family Dental we believe early, minimal and conservative intervention.

Regular six monthly dental cleans performed routinely can help prevent or minimise irreversible damage to the teeth and gums. Just like the body, the mouth is in a constant state of deterioration throughout our lives. With active maintenance we can try and delay and in certain cases reverse this process with good habits.

We know how time flies, and six months becomes two years with the blink of an eye. That’s why by joining Kareela Family Dental, we automatically place our patients on a recall list and we’ll reach out to you every six months for your professional dental examination and clean appointment so you don’t forget!

Our Kareela and local Sutherland dentists spend a lot of time with our patients on educating them on proper brushing and flossing procedures. This is especially important for the little ones. With all those baby teeth coming and going, we want to make sure there are good habits from day one to set them up for life! We also need to make sure their adult teeth are coming out straight and healthy.

Preventative Care
Fluoride Treatments

At your routine check up and professional clean appointments we offer fluoride treatments. A high concentration fluoride foam or gel is placed on your teeth. The benefit of this is that it strengthens your tooth enamel and therefore reduces risk of cavities, can slow down the growth of existing cavities and ultimately delay the need for expensive dental work!

Other Preventative Care Services we offer?

Fissure sealants

Children can be more prone to developing cavities as they often have deep grooves and pits in their back teeth or ‘molars’. These grooves collect food and plaque and can make it very difficult to clean. Fissure sealants are placed as a hard protective coating to fill and protect these grooves and pits. This will significantly reduce the risk for decay and need for fillings.

Mouthguards

Sports mouthguards are important in reducing trauma and concussion. At Kareela Family Dental we can make custom-made mouthguards which are designed to protect teeth and soft tissue in the event of sporting injuries. Compared to poor quality boil and bite mouthguards, our custom-made mouthguards are more comfortable, more retentive and provide better protection.

Occlusal splints

Occlusal splints otherwise known as night guards are a custom hard plastic appliance made to fit the upper or lower teeth. It is designed to protect teeth from permanent damage such as wear and cracks caused by grinding and clenching also known as bruxism.
