Dentist Northern Sydney NSW
At Wahroonga Family Dental Centre in Northern Sydney, we believe that a proactive preventive dental care program is the secret to maintaining optimal oral health for life
Regular general dental check-ups are the key to convenient, comfortable and cost-effective oral health maintenance.
Dr Freelander and Dr Tsang recommend that our valued patients and their family members visit our Wahroonga practice once every six months for an oral health check-up. We strive to ensure that these visits are efficient, enjoyable and productive so that you can make the most of your time while in our care. During your appointment, our dentists have the ability to:
- Conduct a professional clean – This is done to remove the hardened deposits of plaque that cannot be removed by brushing alone.
- Check for any potential threats to your oral health – Concerns such as tooth decay or gum disease are treated much more easily if they are caught in their early stages.
- Conduct an oral cancer screening – Oral cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers, if caught in its early stages patients experience a much better prognosis.
To complement this in-practice oral health program we also strongly suggest that patients employ a comprehensive at-home oral care program. This should include maintaining a healthy diet, brushing twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste and flossing your teeth every single day.
At our Northern Sydney dental practice, our goal is for our patients to retain their natural teeth for as long as possible.
With our comprehensive general care, we also cater for anxious patients
Dr Freelander and Dr Tsang employ an integrated approach to maintaining your smile and will take the time to diagnose any oral health issues in their early stages. If you are nervous about your dental treatment, they will discuss the wide range of techniques that are available to ensure that all treatments are carried out comfortably. These include various types of local anaesthesia, topical anaesthesia, ‘happy gas’, oral sedation and a host of other techniques which modern dentistry provides.
