Regular dental check-ups prevent the need for major dental work in the future, and is far more cost effective than allowing problems to go on undetected. At Atwell Smiles, our check-ups, cleans and other associated treatments are often covered by most major health insurance providers. If you don’t have health insurance, we are happy to assist you with the fees to ensure your finances don’t get in the way of your dental health.
Regular visits to the dentist have been shown to acclimatise children to the dental environment, which will reinforce positive lifelong oral care habits. We advise exposing children as young as three to visit for a regular check-up, clean or even to sit and watch mummy so they become familiar with the processes that will see them develop good lifelong dental care.
Dental check-ups are painless, and we will strive to make them comfortable for you in every way possible. They are a perfect way to determine the health of your teeth and gums by not only taking x-rays on site, but by performing an extensive intra oral examination which includes looking for decay, cracks, soft tissue problems, and other abnormalities. We’ll also have a look at your gums while you’re here, covering any risks such as excessive gum wear and disease.
Atwell Smiles is well equipped with the most modern examination equipment available including a modern Panoramic x-ray machine and an internal mouth camera. Whatever your diagnostic needs, Atwell smiles can assist you in Perth.
We highly recommend making it a part of your routine to visit your dentist at least every six months. By doing so, we can identify issues in their early stages so they become easier to treat. Even if you feel there is nothing wrong with you or your family’s oral health, a comprehensive check-up will do wonders for your long-term dental care, and will see your smile brighten everyone’s day!
