Why Are Dental Exams & Cleanings Important?

Problems like tooth decay can develop with time, leading to potential complications. If left unaddressed, dental problems can become severe and threaten your oral health. Regular dental exams and cleanings are the best way to prevent these issues

We can identify problems as early as possible and recommend a treatment plan to improve your oral health. Thoroughly cleaning your teeth removes hardened plaque called tartar and helps us protect your teeth from future problems. 

Dental visits are only a part of your overall hygiene—at-home care is just as important. You can help reduce your risk of dental problems by: 

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day
  • Flossing at least once a day
  • Brushing your tongue to remove bacteria

What to Expect at Your Dental Exam & Cleaning

According to the Canadian Dental Association, the average visit to the dentist is every 6 months. However, this schedule depends on your dental needs. While you don’t need an exam every visit, you’ll need a cleaning to maintain your oral health. 

Your dental exam and cleaning involve several steps, including the exam, cleaning, and end-of-appointment discussion.

The Exam

Your exam includes a detailed look at your mouth and teeth to detect and diagnose oral health problems.

We examine your teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks, and the roof of your mouth, looking for signs of:

  • Damaged, decayed, or missing teeth
  • Cavities
  • Possible gum conditions
  • The state of previous dental work
  • Early signs of mouth or throat cancer
  • Signs of bleeding or inflammation
  • The overall health & function of your mouth & jaw

Dental cleanings involve thoroughly removing plaque and tartar before we polish and floss your teeth.

Our team will complete several steps during your cleaning, including:

  • Tooth scaling: We remove plaque & tartar from your teeth & gumline using fine tools.
  • Flossing & polishing: We floss to remove leftover debris & polish the teeth to remove stains and bacteria.

Fluoride treatment: We apply fluoride to your teeth to help reduce the risk of future decay.

After examining and cleaning your teeth, we’ll discuss our findings. We will book you in for another appointment if we need to fill any cavities or complete other treatments.

Additionally, we will provide recommendations on how you can care for your oral health at home.
