Many people don’t go to the dentist often enough. This is simply not right, as our oral health is an extremely important part of our general health. Regular visits to the dentist are essential to make sure that any oral issues can be treated on time. At the very least, everyone should be seeing the dentist at least once a year. The visit itself consists of a professional oral exam to confirm the health of your teeth and gums. As well, a professional cleaning is the best way to remove stubborn deposits and plaque buildup helping to make your smile even brighter!
Your hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, preventing gum disease, cavities, and bad breath.
Complete set of digital x-rays (once a year) allows us to diagnose concerns that aren’t visible during your initial exam.
We will assess the health of your gums and determine your risks of developing gum disease.
We will check your teeth, gums, tongue, and other soft tissues for signs of decay, damage, or infection.
With this procedure, our specialist look for cancerous and precancerous lesions.
Digital cavity screenings help us effectively diagnose, prevent, and treat tooth decay.
Typically a dentist appointment can last anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour. During this time, you are seated in a dentist’s chair while a dental hygienist examines your teeth. Then various tools are used to help remove plaque and polish your teeth to keep them in good condition.
A dental cleaning can be painless. However, you must maintain the cleanliness of your teeth to ensure no problems begin to develop over time.
If you don’t receive regular checkups/cleanings plaque and other issues may begin to form. This can eventually cause problems for you later down the line including issues such as tooth decay and oral cancer.
Regular checkups/cleanings are very important for everyone to maintain. Going to the dentist at least once a year allows your teeth to be properly examined by a professional who can spot any difficulties you may be having. Most of all, it’s a safe place to consult with your dentist about any concerns you may have about your teeth.
A cleaning is a simple process. It usually begins with an examination of your teeth. Then different tools are brought out to remove plaque and clean up those hard-to-reach places. When you’re done, a fluoride treatment will be put on your teeth to protect you from cavities long-term.
