Teeth Cleanings & Exams At Any Age
As part of taking care of your dental health, teeth cleanings and dental exams are important at every age.
- As your child’s baby teeth come in, we’ll be able to tell you how to best care for them and if braces may be in your child’s future.
- Your child’s first dental visit should happen around their first birthday.
- This is also when we’ll be talking about preventive measures, such as fluoride treatment.
As your child ages, they might need:
- Braces if their teeth come in crooked
- An athletic mouthguard if they play sports
- Their wisdom teeth removed if they’re causing issues
- Nutritional counseling to make sure they maintain healthy eating habits
- According to the Canadian Dental Association, gum disease is a pressing issue for adult teeth. We can diagnose your gum health issues at your exam and provide prompt treatment.
- The Canadian Dental Association reports that the tartar that can cause gum disease cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. A dental hygienist can remove tartar from your teeth during your biannual teeth cleaning.
- Your exam is also when we can identify any cavities that should be treated with a tooth-coloured filling or a dental crown.
- If you have replacement teeth such as dental implants, a dental bridge, or dentures, your regular exams can give us an opportunity to check up on them and the ongoing health of your remaining natural teeth.
- Exams also give you a chance to discuss any issues you’re experiencing, so your dentist can recommend treatment for oral health issues.
