Preventative and Periodontal

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 defence 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.
