THE IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR DENTAL CHECK UPS

Dr Rakesh Bhula and Selvan Dass, along with Ms Cheryll Dunn at Griffith Street Family Dental strongly recommend regular six monthly check-ups and cleans to their valued patients. The main reason for this is because studies have shown that dental diseases such as tooth decay, gum disease and their pathologies like cysts and oral cancers can progress significantly during a six month period. If not treated accordingly, these can lead to the need for more costly and time consuming treatments in the future; and in the case of oral cancers, more debilitating treatments in the future.

During your regular dental check-up and clean appointment at Griffith Street Family Dental with Dr Rakesh Bhula, Dr Selvan Dass and Oral Health Therapist Cheryll Dunn, you will be receiving a full spectrum of diagnostic, preventative and educational services specifically designed for your individual needs.

According to research, approximately 20% of Australian adults have gum disease and do not realise it. If identified on time, the damage could be reversed, but, once the gums and teeth within begin to deteriorate, regular dental treatments will only limit the damage.

At Griffith Street Family Dental, the treatment of your gum disease will involve cleans with our Oral Health Therapist Cheryll Dunn at three or six monthly intervals. It is very important that you maintain these regular visits as bacteria that cause gum disease can repopulate around the gums and penetrate gum pockets within three months of a scale and clean.
