Oral hygiene service

Maintain good oral health for the whole family

At Ipswich Family Dental, our services are designed to maintain good oral health for all of our patients.

We work to support you to make smart decisions that better your chances of good oral health both when you’re in the clinic and when you’re going about your daily lives.

Dental checkups

Regular dental checkups are absolutely essential for maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. We recommend that you come in to see our team twice a year, which is why we have our Six Monthly Recall Program.

We’ve taken the hassle out of health by proactively reminding you when you’re due to come in for a checkup. Not only does it give our team the opportunity to conduct regular examinations and detect any issues before they become serious, we’re also able to periodically remove plaque and tartar build-up as part of our scale and clean. Less plaque and tartar means less breath and less yellow staining.

Why do you need to maintain your oral health?

Avoid pain and disruption

Toothaches can be rather painful and can disrupt your daily life in a myriad of ways. Through effective maintenance of your oral health, we can actively work to avoid toothaches and other pain from developing.

Disease and decay

It’s always easier to prevent disease and decay than treating it. Often tooth decay can lead to gingivitis, gum disease, and serious tooth pain. While we offer a variety of dental treatments to deal with both decay and disease, such as fillings, extractions, crowns, and root canals, we also prefer not having any to begin with!
Regular check ups and good oral health will prevent both disease and decay. Plus it will help your smile stay whiter and brighter for longer!

Save money

While you might think that six-monthly visits to the dentist will cost you, the truth is that you’re likely to need to spend a lot more if you don’t come in for regular maintenance and check ups. Knowing how to maintain good oral health is important for your wellbeing but also for your backpocket.
Dental treatments can be expensive, especially for extensive damage, disease or decay. By allowing our team to periodically examine your mouth and detect any potential problems early, you’ll be avoiding a whole lot of problems in the future.

Curb bad habits

It’s not just disease and teeth problems that can be prevented through ongoing dental checkups. Bad oral habits such as teeth grinding, lack of flossing or nail biting, can be detected by our dentists and brought to your attention. That way, you can be made aware of bad habits that are negatively affecting your oral health before they balloon into bigger problems.

Serious health issues

Medical science is continually discovering more and more ways in which the various organs in your body are connected. A problem in one part of your body can lead to other issues elsewhere. Maintaining oral health will help reduce the risk of other health issues. In fact, recent studies have connected gum disease (known as periodontal disease) to heart disease!
