Regular dental visits are important in maintaining good oral hygiene habits and routine. Your oral exam is the first step in assessing your overall oral health and allows us to determine what preventative treatments are right for you. Using the latest technologies such as digital x-rays and 3-D intra oral scanner is key in diagnosing any problems and preventing any further serious complications before they occur. Some of the general preventative services we provide are:
Oral Cancer screenings:
At Fresh Dental, we recognize the importance of screening for oral cancer as it is one of the few cancers on the rise in North America. During these screenings we check for any lumps, bumps or color changes in the mucosa (oral tissue). This allows us to detect any changes in the oral tissue which may indicate a very early start of the disease. With the help of an oral pathologist an early diagnosis can be made which can dramatically alter the disease prognosis and lead to a much better outcome for the patients.
Of course, taking good care of your teeth begins at home, with a proper routine of regular brushing and flossing. But, having regular checkups and a professional teeth cleaning is also a crucial part of maintaining good oral hygiene. Unfortunately, tartar and plaque can still develop and we can sometimes miss those hard-to-reach areas. When you come in for a cleaning at our office, our friendly certified dental hygienist, aims to remove this build up that has accumulated on the teeth and enable us to check for any cavities and infections. We highly recommend having your teeth cleaned every 6-9 months to maintain the health of your teeth and gums and reduce the likelihood of periodontal disease. Keeping regular visits with us will help identify any signs of decay or changes, and allow us to correct any problems early on before they get worse. Book a cleaning appointment now!
