In order to prevent problems from arising later on, preventive care is very important in dentistry. It is integral that you know the current condition of your oral health so that you can take action of potential dental issues before they even arise or before they get worse. Neglected teeth can be a huge problem later on not only because of the harmful illnesses that it can cause to your body but can also be a huge burden financially. To avoid that from happening, it is recommended to have regular dental check-ups and teeth cleanings at least once every 6 months. We offer comprehensive oral exams and routine cleanings, as well as deep cleanings and fluoride treatments when needed. Dental cleanings help keep your gums and teeth healthy. Our dental professionals will be able to clean your mouth beyond your usual oral hygiene routine. Our dentists will use special equipment to remove any tartar or plaque that has accumulated on the teeth.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screenings are one of the main reasons why regular oral examinations are important. One of the serious illnesses that need to be detected as early as possible is oral cancer because early detection increases the chances of successful treatment. Dental professionals conduct oral cancer screenings by examining your mouth to look for any sores or discoloured tissue. If you are feeling some discomfort in your mouth and throat and if you feel irregular lumps on both sides of your neck, it is recommended that you visit the dentist immediately. If you are someone who smokes or uses other types of tobacco products, it is advised that you undergo at least two oral screenings per year and for non-smokers, at least once a year.
