Dental Cleanings & Dental Exams
We agree with the Canadian Dental Association that the best way to avoid oral health concerns is through regular care of your smile. In addition to twice-a-day brushing and daily flossing, we recommend our patients visit Lakewood Dental Centre every six months for a dental cleaning and a dental exam. Our Winnipeg, MB dental office has been providing dental hygiene services and exams for more than 40 years.
The Benefits Of Professional Teeth Cleanings
Although we’re certain our patients do their best to get in their twice-a-day teeth brushing and daily flossing, it can be easy to miss a session and just as easy to miss spots when we do remember. Our dental hygienists can help keep those misses from damaging your smile. Plus, what’s not to love about that fresh-mouth feeling after a dental cleaning?
Tartar, or hardened plaque, can be removed from your teeth and gumline only by a professional teeth cleaning. If left on your teeth, it can cause stains or worse, lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
Dental Exams For Early DetectionGerry K. on the quality of care at Lakewood Dental Centre
Sometimes soreness or sensitivity can be a sign that there’s something going on with your dental health, but other times there are no noticeable symptoms. Through regular dental exams, Dr. McDermid or Dr. Dhillon can develop a better understanding of your oral health through a tailored individual assessment.
We’ll take digital X-rays, do an oral cancer screening, and perform a visual check of your teeth. Potential oral health issues can be discovered and treated promptly.
Long-Lasting Fluoride Treatment & Varnish
Fluoride treatment and varnish are commonly offered to children to strengthen their teeth against cavities, but adults can benefit too. According to the CDA, fluoride can make your teeth less sensitive to hot or cold foods and beverages, and it can stop the development of a new cavity.
