Professional dental cleanings are not only vital to the health of your teeth and gums but also to your overall health. Dental cleanings should be done a minimum of twice a year, but most adults should visit the dentist every three to four months.
According to the Canadian Dental Association, 48% of Canadians who haven’t visited the dentist in the past year have gum disease.
Dental cleanings prevent stages of tooth decay including cavities, gum disease, and other painful, costly conditions, such as permanent tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings are also especially important for pregnant women to prevent gingivitis. A professional teeth cleaning will also brighten your smile and making you feel great about your teeth.
During your dental cleaning, we will also check for signs of other problems, such as oral cancer, and perform a head and neck examination, looking for signs of other cancers, diabetes, or vitamin deficiencies.
