Preventative Dentistry: At-Home Care Isn’t Enough

Getting your teeth professionally cleaned is crucial to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. The Canadian Dental Association recommends that children and adults alike get their teeth cleaned at least once every six months. At home, it’s important to not just brush, but to floss as well. Flossing at least once a day will help you prevent cavities and keep your gums healthy. But no matter how regularly you brush and floss, you cannot remove tartar, the hard substance that builds on your teeth at the gum line. Only a dental hygienist’s tools can remove tartar, which is why it’s so important to get your teeth cleaned regularly.

Preventative Dentistry Cleaning


Tartar and dental plaque are bacteria-filled films that grow on your teeth. Over time, these bacteria can cause tooth decay. Our dental hygienists clean and polish your teeth, removing any tartar and plaque to prevent decay. They may also treat your teeth with fluoride to protect against cavities. 

Dental Examination

By examining your mouth, we can check for tooth decay and gum disease. Catching these early on will help prevent further damage and keep your smile healthy.

Oral Cancer Screening

Screening for oral cancer is highly effective in detecting cancer early. At every dental appointment (regardless of patient age), our dental hygienists screen for oral cancer. They also teach clients about risk factors, as well as potential problems to look out for.
