Keep Your Smile Clean With Teeth Cleanings & Dental Exams

Bacteria in your mouth can become plaque over time, and that plaque can harden into tartar. Tartar can be removed only by a professional teeth cleaning. Even if you brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily, your dental hygienist can remove bits of tartar from spots you may have missed.

It is recommended that patients see their dentist every six months for a teeth cleaning and dental exam. Some patients might have ongoing oral health issues that require more frequent visits.

During your dental exam, we can take digital X-rays, conduct an oral cancer screening, and follow up on your general oral health and comfort.

Prevent Decay & Disease With Our Other General Dentistry Treatments

We provide several other preventive dentistry services that can help you maintain a healthy smile, including:

  • Fluoride Treatments – We encourage our patients to follow their teeth cleaning with a fluoride treatment or varnish. Fluoride is a mineral that is proven to strengthen teeth against tooth decay.
  • Nutritional Counseling – We can help you care for your teeth by teaching you how what you eat can benefit your teeth and gums or negatively affect their health.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – It’s possible to have gum disease and not even know it. But if your gums are sore or bleeding, or if your teeth are unusually sensitive, be sure to address these issues with your dentist. Your dentist can catch gum disease early through regular exams and begin treating it quickly.
  • Dry Mouth & Bad Breath Treatment – A lack of saliva is uncomfortable and can cause dental problems too, as saliva helps fight decay. If you suffer from dry mouth and/or bad breath (halitosis), our dentists will work with you to identify any underlying medical causes. In some cases, prescriptions cause or intensify dry mouth, so it may merit a discussion with your physician. We can also suggest products like mouthwashes to alleviate symptoms.
  • Custom Mouthguards – According to the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association, an injury to teeth can be a devastating event that leads to complex dental work. Protect your teeth with a custom-designed athletic mouthguard from Lakewood Dental Centre.
