Achieve and Maintain Healthy Teeth and Gums

If you want a healthy set of teeth and gums, regular dental checkups and cleanings can go a long way.

At Tendler Dental, we care about your health, and believe in the importance of preventive care to keep your smile bright and healthy.

Benefits of Regular Dental Checkups

Disease Prevention

Regular dental cleans remove plaque and tartar buildup, preventing gum disease and maintaining good oral health.

Oral Health

Maintaining oral health through regular checkups can reduce risks of heart disease, diabetes, and other systemic conditions.

Save Money

Checkups allow for early detection of any dental issues, which means less invasive treatments and lower costs in the long run.

A regular dental checkup and clean is keeping your teeth and gums happy and healthy!

Our Easy Dental Checkup and Clean Process

Comprehensive Dental Examination: When you visit us for a checkup, we will assess your dental history and perform a comprehensive examination.

You can discuss any dental issues you might have, such as bleeding gums or tooth sensitivity. If any treatment is required, we provide you with a detailed written treatment plan.

Scale and Clean: Our skilled dentists use an ultrasonic scaler that sprays a fine mist of water to remove plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth.

This procedure is extremely comfortable and virtually pain-free. Any stubborn tartar remains are gently scraped away with special hand-held tools.

Post-Cleaning Examination: After scaling and cleaning, a further examination reveals the true state of your teeth and gums.

If we detect any cavities, tooth discolouration, or signs of gum disease, we will discuss the most appropriate treatment options with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommended having a dental checkup and cleaning every six months.

Regular visits help maintain oral health, prevent cavities, and catch any potential issues early.

Your dentist might suggest a different schedule based on your individual needs and oral health condition.

Most dental cleanings are not painful, though you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity, especially if you have gum disease or sensitive teeth.

Communicate any pain or discomfort to your dentist or hygienist, and they can adjust their technique or use numbing agents to make you feel more comfortable.

Regular dental checkups and cleanings are important for maintaining good oral health.

They help prevent cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems by removing plaque and tartar that cannot be eliminated by regular brushing and flossing.

Early detection of problems allows for less invasive and more cost-effective treatments.

Very friendly staff and I found that the lady dental nurse I had was very thorough and gentle when I had to go in for a filling when I broke one of my back teeth while in hospital at Epworth Camberwell just down the road from this clinic, she also advised me to have a check up again soon which I plan on but she made me very comfortable at a time I was not looking forward to and I have never been here before I would have no hesitation in recommending this dentist to anyone wondering if they should visit here!
