It is so important to maintain healthy teeth and gums. The condition of your mouth has a significant impact on your overall health. While having proper oral hygiene habits every day will help protect your smile, it is also necessary to visit your Vancouver dentist regularly. Routine teeth cleanings and dental exams are vital parts of good dental care.
Your Burnaby dentist will determine the best treatment schedule to meet your needs. Most patients get a teeth cleaning and dental exam every six months. However, some people require more frequent visits. Treatment recommendations will be made based on your evaluation and tailored specifically for you.
Routine dental visits provide the preventative care you need to give you peace of mind. Dental exams and cleanings help you avoid costly dental work associated with poor oral health, untreated periodontal disease, and broken teeth. We are dedicated to helping maintain our patient’s healthy smiles for life.
Your dental hygienist will remove any plaque and tartar during professional teeth cleaning. Your teeth will also be polished and flossed. The hygienist will demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. Once your teeth cleaning is finished, a fluoride treatment may be applied for added strength and protection.
During the exam, your dentist at Burnaby Heights Dental Centre checks your gums and every tooth for signs of decay, disease, and other health issues. Your Burnaby dentist may also order digital x-rays to properly screen for potential underlying issues, not visible to the naked eye.
Digital imaging is used so your dentist can make an accurate diagnosis and provide you with the most effective course of treatment. At Burnaby Heights Dental Centre we will discuss any findings with you so that you can make informed decisions about your dental health.
