Check Up and Clean at
Smiles Are Us Park Holme

Family brushing teeth togetherOur highly-trained and experienced oral hygienists play a vital role in helping you achieve and maintain optimal dental health. They are excellent at performing gentle and effective clinical procedures which focus on preventing oral diseases that can not just affect your teeth, but your overall wellbeing too.

These are just some of the beneficial tasks an oral hygienist may perform during your routine check up and clean:

  • A thorough oral health assessment of your entire mouth and surrounding issues, including teeth, gums, lips, tongue, cheeks, jaw.
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Obtaining and analysing oral imaging (such as x-rays)
  • Removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line
  • Removing stain build-up on teeth
  • Polishing teeth
  • Applying fluorides, varnishes and sealants to the teeth to prevent decay
  • Teaching optimal oral hygiene techniques such as brushing and flossing (particularly to young children)

Assisting Our Youngest Patients

Did you know that our professional oral hygienists also play a large role in assisting children with their dental health? Due to their advanced training in all areas of oral health and hygiene, they are also able to provide the experienced, gentle, and friendly care that your child requires, particularly as their teeth and gums continue to develop.

Due to the popularity of our children’s dentistry, we are also part of the Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS), an Australian government initiative that allows children aged between two and seventeen years old to be eligible for up to $1000 worth of bulk-billed general and restorative dental treatments (like our check up and cleans).
