The team at Mt Eliza Dental Centre strongly believe that regular maintenance and prevention provide the foundation for a healthy mouth for life. To achieve that, we recommend most people book in for a checkup and clean every 6 months, but we do personalise this for all our patients, depending on their needs. At this appointment, your dentist will assess your ongoing dental health & needs, as well as cleaning your teeth as required.
If maintenance work is necessary, often we can detect and fix problems while they are still small, minimising the cost and damage to your teeth that can result from problems going undetected for long periods. There are also plenty of situations where we can detect problems before they do permanent damage to your teeth, advising you what you can change at home and allowing you to avoid any treatment at all!
