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 us 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.
Preventive Treatments & Nutritional Counseling
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.
Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB can also help you care for your teeth through nutritional counseling. Learn how what you eat can benefit your teeth and gums or negatively affect their health.
Nonsurgical 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.
According to the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association, injury to teeth can be a devastating event which can lead to complex dental work. Protect your teeth with a custom-designed athletic mouthguard from Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB.
