Preventative and Periodontal Dentist North York
Preventative and Periodontal Dentistry
The absolute best way to ensure a lifetime of excellent oral health is through proper preventative care. The health of your mouth is a strong indicator of the health of your body. Regular brushing and flossing at home is the first line of defense against Periodontal Disease, a bacterial infection caused by plaque, as well as tooth loss and bite issues. However, it is vital to see the dentist every six months for cleanings, x-rays, and a complete oral examination.
What to Expect
At a preventative hygiene appointment, the dentist will perform the following:
- A complete oral exam to check for any potential problems such as cavities or disease
- A thorough removal of plaque and tartar
- A full set of X-rays
- Polishing of the teeth for stain removal
- Administration of a fluoride treatment to help strengthen the teeth against decay
It’s never too late to start good oral hygiene habits. Call today to schedule a cleaning and check-up with our caring and experienced team of cosmetic dentists and hygienists.
