Our aim at Homebush Dental Practice is to discover and control any issues before they become a major problem. Part of this is to perform regular dental check up and clean on all our patients to control levels of calculus deposits and prevent gum disease as well as monitor bone levels and any decay present in the mouth.
We recommend you visit us once every six months for a thorough examination and clean even if you aren’t having any dental problems so that we can ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy for life.
Remember, we dislike the drill as much as you do and we will work with you in order to develop an oral hygiene routine that works for your circumstances and for your teeth.
We also undertake regular fluoride applications to your teeth to prevent early decay and strengthen teeth.
We offer GAP FREE Dental Check Up & Clean for private health fund members.

DENTAL CARE TIPS :
Here are our dentist tips for strong, healthy gums and teeth:
- Brush at least twice a day and floss at least once. Use toothbrushes with soft bristles to minimise wear on your teeth and gums and replace your brush every three months.
- Your diet is an essential part of maintaining healthy gums and teeth. Eating the right foods can help you keep plaque deposits and gum disease at bay.
- Visit us at least every six months so we can assess your smile and oral health. We can also remove any deposits that have formed on your teeth that you may not have been able to reach.
- Visit us immediately if you notice any signs of problems anywhere in your mouth. If you have any pain, bleeding or swelling or if your teeth feel loose and like they have moved in your mouth, please come in straight away and let us have a look
- Be aware of your mouth. When you clean your teeth, check at the back of your mouth and under your tongue for any unusual sores or changes in colour. If you notice anything please come in and get us to have a look. Sores that do not go away within a fortnight may be due to oral cancer and it is imperative that they are checked straight away.
- Avoid smoking and other tobacco products. Minimise alcohol consumption. Both alcohol and tobacco have been shown to be linked to increased rates of oral cancer.
