Regular oral examinations and hygiene cleanings with our Winnipeg dentists can help you prevent oral health complications before they arise.
Oral Examinations in Winnipeg
We recommend seeing a Winnipeg dentist twice annually, giving them an opportunity to identify any arising oral health issues and make a plan to treat them accordingly.
During your exam, your dentist will take a close look at the health of your teeth, gums, jaw and bite. Exams may also include dental X-rays, an oral cancer screening and other diagnostic procedures.
Oral Cancer Screening in Winnipeg
Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues. During your exam, your dentist will check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer which are difficult to detect with the naked eye. Regular exams help patients rest easy that they remain in good health.
Proper Home Care Promotes Oral Health
To keep your smile healthy between dental appointments, be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, and floss at least once a day.
Dental Hygiene Cleaning in Winnipeg
Before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums. Cleaning both prevents and treats existing diseases.
Starting with a scaler to remove any tartar and plaque build-up, your Winnipeg dental hygienist will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains or plaque, before finally giving your teeth a thorough flossing.
Fluoride Treatment in Winnipeg
For patients at risk of tooth decay, our dentists may recommend a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel, preventing or reversing tooth decay.
