Check up & Clean (active maintenance)

Regular 6 monthly check-ups are encouraged with the hygienist or Dentist to allow regular removal of bacterial build up (plaque and tartar) and to regularly review the condition of your teeth. This coupled with good home care ensures your teeth remain in good condition and often minimises the need for difficult and costly repairs.
