Teeth for Life
Your smile is what everyone sees - Protect it Forever.
Your smile is one of the most important aspects of your appearance
Your smile speaks volumes to the world and is a reflection of your general overall health.
There are three pillars to excellent oral health:
- Good at-home care, which consists of proper brushing and flossing.
- Regular visits to your dentist
- An overall healthy diet and lifestyle that supports strong bones and teeth
Do these things properly and you have greatly diminished your risk of not only dental problems, but also general health problems, several which may cost thousands of dollars to fix:
- Reduced chance of tooth decay
- Lower likelihood of unsightly teeth that impact your self-confidence or how people perceive you.
- Reduced chance of jaw complications and eating or chewing problems (imagine not being able to chew your favourite food, or people always misunderstanding what you are saying)
- Less chance of major illness -- heart diseases, pancreatic cancer and strokes have all been connected to gum disease.
Why dental check-ups?
We need dental check-ups because we need to see what going on and catch things early. You should never give your dental problems a chance to spread. We’ll use low-radiation digital x-rays and special cameras to clearly see the state of your teeth and to fix any problems before they become big ones.
During your dental check-up we will:
- Examine the condition of your teeth and gums
- Examine the condition of your tongue, palate and soft tissue under your tongue and on the inside of your cheeks.
- Check your teeth for cavities and infections
- Examine the quality of your saliva and your breath for halitosis, which could be a sign of other conditions
- Occlusion (how close together are your teeth)
- Your ability open and close your mouth and to chew
- The condition of previous restorations
- The condition of dental prosthesis
- The condition of dental implants
- The condition of your lips and lymph nodes
- Take low dosage digital X-rays
- Professionally clean and polish your teeth
- Look for unseen problems beneath your gums
- Check for warning signs of gum disease and gingivitis
Prevention is always better than cure. Visiting your dentist at least twice a year will not only keep your teeth healthy, but also save you money and time in the long run.
