Our dentists at dentalhouse Liberty Village in Toronto take a preventive approach to your dental care.
Oral Examinations in Toronto
Ideally, you'll visit our office twice a year for routine oral exams so that your dentist can detect any oral health problems. We'll then devise a strategy for dealing with them.
During your appointment, your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite in detail. Dental X-rays, an oral cancer screening, and other diagnostic procedures may be included in your exam.
Oral Cancer Screening in Toronto
Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues. Your dentist will look for signs of oral cancer in your face, lips, throat, tissues, gums, and tongue, which can be difficult to detect with the naked eye.
Oral Health Care at Home
Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day, and floss at least once a day. This should help you maintain a healthy smile in between dental appointments.
Dental Hygiene Cleaning in Toronto
Your dental hygienist is an important partner in disease prevention and treatment. He or she will clean your teeth and gums thoroughly before or after your exam.
To begin, plaque and tartar buildup will be removed with a scaler. Any remaining stains or plaque will be removed with a polisher and coarse toothpaste. After the cleaning, your teeth and gums will be flossed.
Fluoride Treatment in Toronto
Your dentist may also recommend a fluoride treatment if you or your child are at high risk of tooth decay. Fluoride is a mineral that can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel, preventing or reversing decay.
