We all know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure... and that’s especially true when it comes to those regular oral hygiene and cleaning appointments! When you come to see us for your check-ups and cleaning, you’re actually practicing preventative dentistry, those procedures that keep your oral health in tip-top shape so that larger problems don’t develop down the line, and other issues are dealt with while they’re still small.
Regular appointments are vital for good health. Tooth cleaning and scaling remove plaque and tartar, those harmful deposits on your enamel that lead to cavities, tooth decay, and periodontal infection. Polishing the teeth then provides a smooth surface to make it that much more difficult for plaque to adhere. Fluoride provides strength and gives your teeth an extra level of protection against decay. X-rays let us see under the surface to deal with small problems before they become larger ones. And we always provide proper brushing and flossing education, so that you can continue and maintain all these good preventative habits at home.
We are passionate about preventative dentistry here at Urban Centre Dental, so don’t hesitate to bring us any questions you have about our oral hygiene and cleaning procedures. We want you to view your regular appointments with the same importance as all the other things you do for your overall health - because we want to help you maintain your oral health for a lifetime!
