Checkups

Regular examinations provide your dentist with the opportunity to identify developing dental health problems.

Issues such as cavities, gum disease, and oral abnormalities can be spotted early and treated by your dentist before they become more serious. Your examination may include dental x-rays, oral cancer screening, or additional diagnostic procedures as required.

Professional Cleanings

Professional dental cleanings help prevent gum disease and tooth decay and are important in maintaining healthy a healthy smile.

During your professional dental cleaning, the hygienist remove plaque and tartar build-up from your teeth and gum line, then floss and polish your teeth to give you a fresh, clean smile.

Oral Cancer Screening

Your checkup may include an oral cancer screening. During the screening, your dentist will closely examine the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

Fluoride

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps to make teeth more resistant to tooth decay. Our dental professionals provide fluoride treatments for both children and adults as required to help prevent cavities and strengthen dental enamel.

At-Home Oral Hygiene

A strong at-home oral hygiene routine consists of brushing thoroughly twice a day and flossing daily. Speak to your dentist or hygienist for more advice on how to care for your teeth between appointments.

Digital & Panoramic X-Rays

We use digital x-rays to produce detailed computer images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures. Digital x-rays allow our dentists to see oral structures, diseases and abnormalities that are not visible to the naked eye.
