Elevate your dental health with routine dental check-ups!
It’s recommended that a dental check-up should happen twice a year or every six months. These check-ups are vital to your dental health because not only are they preventative in keeping your teeth and gums healthy, but it also provides early detection to any oral health issues such as cavities or gum disease.
What happens at our dental examination?
There are a couple of parts to an appointment at our Windsor dental clinic. The dental check-up typically checks for any cavities that are forming and may include x-rays for a more precise diagnosis and treatment plan.
The dental hygienist and dentist will have a look into your mouth and take a glance at the plaque and tartar buildup, in addition to monitoring your gum health.
Apart from checking your teeth and gums, the dentist will carefully examine your tongue, throat, face, and neck to evaluate them for any signs of oral cancer, diabetes, and even vitamin deficiencies, in addition to examining your bite, saliva, and the movement of your jawbones.
Dental tips between check-ups:
- Brush your teeth twice a day
- Floss at least once a day
- Avoid over-processed, high-starch, and sugary food and beverages
- Sip on water throughout the day to help rinse food debris and bacteria
