Visiting the dentist regularly is essential in preventing dental health issues from developing. They also allow your dentist to monitor the condition of your teeth and gums and provides an opportunity for early intervention and a plan for treatment.
Your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and bite during your appointment. The exam may also include dental x-rays and other diagnostic procedures as required.
Your dental hygienist will perform a professional deep cleaning of your teeth during your appointment as well. The cleaning will include removing any built-up plaque and tartar between your teeth and along your gums, followed by polishing your teeth and thorough flossing.
Regular visits to your dentist are vital, and maintaining your oral hygiene between appointments is equally important. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, and flossing once a day, preferably before going to bed each night. We also recommend rinsing your mouth with water after brushing and after each meal if you are unable to brush.
In dentistry, fluoride is a commonly-used mineral treatment intended to help prevent or reverse tooth decay by rebuilding the minerals that make your teeth strong.
Our Markham dentists provide fluoride treatment for adults who are at a higher risk of developing cavities.
Professional fluoride treatment only takes a few minutes at our office. We typically advise that you avoid eating or drinking for 30 minutes following your appointment so the fluoride can fully absorb.
Your child's individual risk of developing tooth decay will be assessed by your dentist and an appropriate level of fluoride protection will be recommended.
