General Dentist in Baulkham Hills
Why A Dental Check-Up Is Vital
If you need a dental check-up then our Cosmetic and general dentist Dr Jacob Stretton in Baulkham Hills will be pleased to help. We provide outstanding comprehensive dentistry for all the family and consider a dental check-up to be the cornerstone of maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
A six-monthly general check-up and clean in Baulkham Hills helps us get to know you and your family better and hopefully, you will equally enjoy getting to know us.
The check-up enables Dr Jacob Stretton our Baulkham Hills and Castle Hill District dentists to form a diagnosis of your health in relation to your head and neck (extra-oral) as well as the inside (intra-oral) areas of your mouth, soft tissues, lymph nodes, temporomandibular joint, facial and chewing muscles, and any soft tissue abnormalities.
In addition, our dentist Dr Jacob will check the health of your teeth, examine the condition of your gums, and check for any worn or damaged restorations. We will also check your tongue, cheeks and floor of the mouth for any changes that might indicate more serious problems. Regular checkups with our Baulkham Hills dentist every 6 months can prevent problems that you or your medical doctor may not check.
General dentist in Baulkham Hills – Benefit from some of the latest technologies
We also use some of the latest fast and precise low-dose digital radiography, utilising Morita OPG and CBCT digital x-ray equipment to diagnose and treat other dental problems such as tooth decay, broken fillings, cysts, impacted wisdom teeth and abscesses. Early diagnosis and treatment prevent these problems from escalating into more serious and expensive conditions.
Once the examination is over, our dentist will move on to the second part of the general check-up – dental cleaning. Baulkham Hills dentists also refer to this as a scale and clean.
Teeth that sparkle
Dental cleaning for Baulkham Hills patients involves the removal of hardened plaque or tartar from the teeth and below the gum line using a special tool known as an ultrasonic scaler. If this isn’t removed, the gums could become inflamed and this can lead to gum disease.
Finally, your teeth are polished to remove any stains using a special type of toothpaste. The result is a smile that looks as good as it feels.
