It is recommended that you see your dentist at least twice each year for a full check up and/or cleaning appointment. During your check up, we will inspect your soft and hard tissues. We will use our advanced intraoral camera to magnify each tooth to ensure that we do not miss any problems like tooth decay or cracks, as well as old dental work. We will show you pictures and live view of your teeth with our intraoral camera. Sometimes old dental work also wears out and needs to be replaced. We will be happy to replace metal fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns with tooth-coloured alternatives.
During your professional cleaning appointment, we will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for adults. Our team is specially trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease. We prefer to help you maintain optimal oral health so that you never have to worry about gum disease. However, if you develop periodontal problems, we’re here to help you.
By looking for trouble every six months, we can often reduce your potential for large dental problems. For instance, left untreated, a small cavity can grow to destroy an entire tooth and spread to surrounding teeth. A cracked tooth can cause pain or break off and create additional problems. Children as young as two should visit the dentist, and by age four or five, a child should attend regular checkups.
