Preventive Dental Hygiene
Regular dental exams and dental hygiene cleanings can help prevent oral health issues from taking away your smile.
A regular checkup at Kerhoulas Dental Streetsville should ideally take place twice a year. This gives your dentist the chance to identify any oral health issues and appropriately treat them.
During your checkup, your dentist will take a thorough look at your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite. These exams may also include dental X-rays or other diagnostic procedures.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues. During your exam, your dentist will carefully check you face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
Oral Health Care at Home
Always be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, and floss at least once to maintain good oral health.
Dental Hygiene Cleaning
Dental hygiene and regular visits to the dentist are important for preventing gum disease. At Kerhoulas Dental in Mississauga our team of dentists and hygienists provide thorough teeth cleaning during every appointment, one of our dental hygienists will complete a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to prevent and treat conditions.
They will start by using a scaler to remove built-up plaque or tartar. They will then use a coarse brush and polisher to remove any stains or remaining plaque. Lastly, a thorough flossing of the teeth and gums will be completed.
For patients with higher than average risk of tooth, a fluoride treatment way be recommended. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
