Preventive Dental Hygiene
Prevent dental issues and keep your smile healthy with routine oral examinations and hygiene cleanings at North Delta Dental Professionals.
We recommend people see their dentist twice a year for a routine oral exam. This provides your dentist the opportunity to discover and diagnose any emerging oral health issues and develop a plan to treat them accordingly.
During your exam, your dentist will closely check the condition of your teeth, gums, bite and jaw. Your exam may also include an oral cancer screening, dental x-rays and other diagnostic procedures.
Oral Health Care at Home
Maintaining a healthy smile between dental appointments is a must. Remember to brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes each time, and floss at least once per day.
The deep cleaning of your teeth and gums is a critical task your dental hygienist will complete before or after your exam. This cleaning aims to prevent and treat disease.
To start, a scaler will be used to remove any plaque buildup and tartar. Next, the hygienist will use a polisher topped with coarse toothpaste to eliminate any remaining plaque or stains, followed by a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums.
If your dentist finds that you or your child are at high risk of tooth decay, he or she may also recommend a fluoride treatment. This natural mineral can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
