Are You Doing Everything You Can to Ensure Excellent Dental Hygiene?
Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing habitually are an important part of everyday dental care, but maintaining a healthy mouth also requires periodic visits to the dentist. Having your teeth professionally examined and cleaned regularly helps to make sure that dental diseases such as gingivitis and infection are properly diagnosed and treated. Some extensive dental procedures such as root-canal therapy, dental implants, and smile makeovers can often be avoided altogether with regular dental visits.
Maintaining Your Smile with Personalized Dental Hygiene
During a dental checkup or examination, our dentist will check your teeth and the health of your entire mouth. This assessment can include
- digital X-rays to determine whether tooth roots, fillings, and the structure of the jaw bone are in good health (at Squan Family Dentistry, we use digital radiography, a technology that can take a picture of your teeth and then almost immediately display it on a computer screen; digital radiography allows our dentists to zoom in on single teeth, rotate the image, and sharpen it, giving you an accurate diagnosis)
- oral cancer screening to detect any abnormalities or pre-cancerous lesions
- periodontal examination to look for gum disease which may manifest in gum discolouration, swelling, and “pocket” areas where the gums pull away from the teeth
