Checkup and Cleans

To maintain your bright smile, it’s essential to schedule a dental checkup every six months. At Radiant Smiles in Bundoora, we believe in keeping your smile healthy and radiant. During these appointments, our team will carefully assess everything from your gums to your teeth to ensure their health and integrity. We’ll also check any previous dental work you’ve had done to ensure it’s holding up well. Your smile matters to us, and we’re here to help you keep it shining!

Do I Require X-rays?

At Radiant Smiles in Bundoora, we may recommend periodic dental X-rays to detect issues that might not be visible during a regular checkup. If your teeth are generally healthy and you don’t have many dental problems, you might only need X-rays once every other year. However, if you have a history of tooth decay, bone loss, or other concerns, we may suggest X-rays at each checkup.

Finding areas of decay or bone loss early means we can treat them with less invasive procedures. Detecting problems sooner allows for simpler and more affordable treatments that are better for your teeth and your budget.

During your checkup at Radiant Smiles in Bundoora, feel free to share any questions or worries you may have. We believe in patient-centred care, meaning your concerns guide our approach. Whether you suspect an issue or want to explore treatment options, we’re here to provide professional advice.

If treatment or a specific procedure is necessary, we’ll create a personalized care plan just for you. This plan will outline the steps involved, the therapies available, and the associated costs. You’ll be actively involved in planning the best course of action for your unique needs.

At Radiant Smiles in Bundoora, we recommend regular dental cleanings every six months to help prevent gum disease, and bone loss, and remove any stains on your teeth. During your cleaning, we’ll carefully remove tartar buildup along the gum lines and finish with a gentle polish. People with healthy teeth and gums often find that getting a professional scale and clean every six months can be beneficial for maintaining their oral health.

During your checkup at Radiant Smiles in Bundoora, we’ll carefully examine the gums around each of your teeth to screen for gum disease. Detecting gum disease early can help prevent future bone and tooth loss. If you notice any of these warning signs, please let us know:

  1. Bleeding gums
  2. Loose teeth
  3. Gaps between your teeth
  4. Tender or swollen gums
  5. Food getting stuck after eating
  6. Buildup of tartar
  7. Persistent bad breath


We’ll use a small measuring tool to assess the attachment level of your gum tissues around each tooth. If there are signs of gum detachment, leading to deep pockets, we may recommend a series of deep cleaning treatments to address the issue.

Taking Care of the Family

At Radiant Smiles in Bundoora, we understand the importance of good oral hygiene and healthy routines for everyone in your family.

Whether you have hard-to-reach teeth, dental bridges, or are recovering from gum disease, your home oral care routine should be tailored to your specific needs. During your cleaning session, we’ll discuss our findings and highlight areas that may require extra attention. Together, we’ll explore simple and effective hygiene techniques that suit your situation.
