General and preventative dental care

Good oral health is foundational to your overall well-being, and general and preventative dental care is at the heart of maintaining this. By addressing potential issues before they develop into bigger problems, you can enjoy a healthier smile and potentially avoid more extensive dental procedures in the future.

CLEANING

A professional dental cleaning, also known as prophylaxis, is essential for keeping the gums and teeth healthy. During the cleaning, dentist removes plaque and tartar that may have built up on the teeth surfaces. This is crucial as these build-ups can lead to tooth decay and gum disease if left untreated. Regular cleanings can prevent these conditions and ensure you maintain a bright and healthy smile

PERIODONTAL THERAPY

Gum health is equally as important as tooth health. Periodontal therapy focuses on treating and preventing diseases that affect the structures supporting the teeth, like gums and bone. Over time, plaque can harden and turn into tartar, leading to gum inflammation known as gingivitis. If untreated, this can develop into periodontitis, a more severe gum disease. Through periodontal therapy, dentist remove the build-up, treat infected gums, and provide solutions to prevent future issues

DIGITAL X-RAY

Digital X-rays are a modern evolution in dental radiography. They use electronic sensors instead of traditional photographic film to capture detailed images of the inside of your mouth. Digital X-rays emit up to 90% less radiation compared to traditional X-rays. Images are available instantly, making diagnosis and treatment faster. They produce clearer, higher-resolution images that can be enhanced and enlarged, aiding in accurate diagnosis

Recall/Periodic Exam

Consistent dental check-ups, typically every six months, are essential for maintaining good oral health. During a recall or periodic exam the dentist checks for cavities, examines the state of previous dental work (like fillings or crowns), and assesses the health of your gums. They screen for any potential oral cancers, tumors, or cysts.  They review X-rays to see the below-surface picture of your teeth and jaw.  Recommendations are made for any required treatments
