First Visit for West Ryde Patients

Begin your journey to excellent oral health at Putney Dental Care. Let our West Ryde team of qualified and experienced dentists assist you in every step of the way. With dentistry, it all begins with an initial comprehensive dental examination. This is where we have a thorough look at your teeth, gums and entire mouth area. Doing so enables us to evaluate your dental health and provide you with suitable treatment recommendations.

Whatever the treatment, we strive to make the experience a positive one for our patients. For instance, the stinging sensation from dental anaesthetic injections is a common fear that we have addressed. With “The Wand”, our patients in West Ryde can now experience a virtually painless anaesthetic delivery.

Teeth Whitening at Putney Dental Care

First, we begin with a comprehensive exam. At our local clinic catering to West Ryde residents, we conduct an initial dental exam that includes the following processes:

  • Oral cancer screening to check all of your lymph nodes, lips, tongue and the insides of your mouth and cheeks
  • Digital x-rays that provide a detailed view of your teeth and condition of your bones that cannot be seen by the naked eye
  • Periodontal (gum) examination, which assesses your gums for any signs of gum disease
  • Occlusal examination to identify any problems such as worn teeth and clicking jaw as well as underbites, overbites and crossbites
  • Tooth-by-tooth examination to assess for cavities, old restorations (fillings), and chipped or missing teeth
  • Intra oral camera photos to illustrate the condition of your dental health

As we care about your well-being, we look into all kinds of treatment options available. Providing you with the right treatment that suits your needs and fits your budget is important to us.

What’s Next?

A scale, clean and polish is the next step in maintaining teeth and gum health. Our West Ryde dentist will ensure you receive a thorough clean to remove any trace of plaque and calculus buildup, as well as any staining. A fluoride application is the final part of the process. This last step aims to make the teeth more resistant to decay and promote tooth remineralisation.
