At Wollongong Dentist 4 U, dental checkups and cleaning services will help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
With our comprehensive dental check-ups, we obtain a complete understanding of your oral health to create a plan to keep your mouth healthy.
We also include routine dental care, such as teeth cleaning, flossing, and gum maintenance, to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
By getting a dental check-up, you can ensure ongoing management of your oral health needs. We schedule everything from routine preventative care to deep cleanings, consultations, and ongoing treatment plans.
What Happens During the Checkup?
As a new patient, your dental checkup will include a questionnaire about your general health. We’ll ask questions about your medical history, lifestyle, medications, and allergies. This information lets us create a strategic plan to treat you and manage your oral health.
Once you become an established patient, you can sign-up for ongoing routine appointments. These checkups will provide a comprehensive mouth assessment, including:
- Detection of tooth decay or gum disease
- Recording of your current oral condition
- Bite assessment
- Oral mucosal exam
- Assessment of your jaw
- Lymph node examination
What Does Dental Cleaning Involve?
After we assess your mouth’s condition, we will perform a professional cleaning of your gums and teeth to remove plaque and tartar. Sometimes, we will include a fluoride treatment to strengthen tooth enamel.
We will also review lifestyle factors and how they influence oral health. As well, we provide advice about oral health topics.
It’s a straightforward process that’s essential to your oral health. A beautiful and healthy smile is just one step away. If you’re looking for a dental check-up in Wollongong, AU, we’ve got you covered!
Check up Frequency
We recommend scheduling a dental checkup every six months. Some people who are more at risk for periodontal disease or other mouth issues can schedule more frequently.
It’s up to the patient and dentist to determine the best frequency for checkups.

After the examination and cleaning, your dentist will go over the findings with you. If any further treatment is necessary, the dentist will review the dental plan in detail. We will discuss treatment options, so you can feel informed about what you need to do. Along with treatment processes, we’ll discuss what you need and when you need it.
