Oral Exams & New Patient Exams
We recommend that all our patients attend an annual oral exam. These appointments are the key to maintaining good oral health. During a routine oral exam, our dentists will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for any developments or concerns. We’ll also screen for oral cancer and take digital dental x-rays for your records.
Dental Hygiene Appointments
We recommend dental hygiene appointments every 6-12 months for optimal oral health. Our dental hygienists have the tools and techniques to remove excess plaque from your teeth that brushing alone often misses. Professional cleanings also help prevent tooth decay, decreasing your risk of cavities and gum disease in the future.
Your gums provide the vital support and protection your teeth need to stay in place. Keeping your gums clean helps keep your entire mouth healthy. If you suffer from receding gums, we offer gum grafting to reinforce your gumline, support your teeth, and help you maintain a healthy smile for years to come.
Oral Cancer Screening
Taking care of your oral health requires comprehensive oral exams. During your routine annual check-up, our dentists will screen you for signs and symptoms of oral cancer, including lumps, sores, discoloured skin patches, or pain. Catching oral cancer early on is beneficial for any type of cancer treatment.
Dental sealants are an easy-to-apply solution for cavity prevention. If you’re prone to plaque buildup and tooth decay, dental sealants can help protect the tooth by applying a layer to keep food particles from clinging to your tooth. Dental sealants are an excellent solution for young children and teenagers to help protect their permanent teeth from cavities.
Digital Dental X-Rays
The first step to complete oral health care is annual comprehensive examinations. At our clinic, we use digital dental x-rays to keep accurate and detailed records of your teeth, gums, and jawline development. You’ll receive dental x-rays every 12-24 months, depending on your oral health and risk for dental issues.
Our dentists provide compassionate care in all procedures to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed in our office. While several causes could lead you to need a root canal procedure, the main reason to have the treatment done is to save your natural tooth and heal the area to prevent more damage from developing.
Your teeth are essential to your wellbeing and can greatly affect your appearance, which is why our primary goal is to save and preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. In the case that your tooth requires extraction, our experienced dentists will perform a clean removal and suggest the best options for full restoration so you can continue to eat and speak as usual.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Are you hiding your smile because you wish you had whiter teeth? Our dentist-approved take-home teeth whitening kits can help make your dream smile a reality. Each kit comes with custom-fitted gel trays and professional teeth whitening supplies that are gentle and effective.
