Our dentists here at Camberwell Family Dental are highly experienced when it comes to providing

important too! After all we only have one set of adult teeth to last a lifetime! Teeth that are well

you come in every 6 months for a general checkup to ensure that your teeth are healthy and for us

What is Involved with Routine Dental Checkups?
A routine dental checkup usually involves the dentist monitoring all the teeth, gums, cheeks, tongue,
hard palate and lips. They will make note of any changes that have occurred since the last check up
and be able to give you advice on care and maintenance of your teeth. If they notice any major
changes, they will be able to assist you in the next steps, such as treatment for cavities and gum
The dentists may also take x-rays (usually taken every 2 years) to check in between the teeth where
they cannot physically see. This is also important in order to check the bone levels of the maxilla
(upper teeth) and mandible (lower teeth), and to monitor if there is any recession of the bone. The
dentist will then carry out a full scale of the teeth, which involves removing the hard plaque from the
teeth which toothbrushes may not be capable of removing. This also removes any plaque in hard to
reach places such as under the gums. Then the dentist will polish your teeth, removing any surface
stains and restoring the teeth’s nature luster.
Elderly Dental Care in Camberwell
There is no such thing as being too old to go to the dentist! Keeping your permanent teeth is
important, especially for elderly patients, as everyday routines can become increasingly difficult. Our
dentists welcome all elderly patients to our dental practice. As we age, eating may become more
difficult as the teeth may not be strong enough to withstand the constant pressure of chewing, and
having a lack of teeth would make it even more challenging. Many elderly patients may suffer from
other medical illnesses or may be taking regular medications. This can have a negative effect on your
oral health. Ways of managing this can be discussed at your dental checkup appointment.
We make it easy for you to access our dental practice as we are located on the ground level with
wide automatic doors for your convenient access. Our staff a very welcoming and you can expect to
be greeted with a friendly smile and caring approach.

and treatment for restoring existing teeth. Our dentists will also be able to help fix any spaces
caused by missing teeth through removable prosthesis (dentures) and through permanent
prosthesis (Implants). Our dentists will be able to speak with you about what is best for your oral
health and create a treatment plan that is tailored for you.
