At Smile Matters Inc., we recommend regular checkups and cleanings for our patients twice per year. These visits are a great form of proactive and preventive dental care.
A regular checkup includes a thorough examination and evaluation of your oral health and hygiene. This will involve a thorough check of your teeth and gums to check for any signs of cavities or other dental issues. We will also take this time to check on any restorations and to ensure your jaw and bite are normal.
We may also take digital X-rays to detect any problems that are not visible with the naked eye. We make use of digital X-rays that are safer than traditional X-rays as they emit far less radiation.
Finally, you will receive a professional cleaning. This helps us to eliminate any hidden plaque and food particles that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing. A professional cleaning goes a long way in helping you to maintain excellent oral health by cleaning the mouth and helping to prevent problems like bad breath, gum disease, tooth decay and root canal infections.
We will also provide an oral cancer screening with a visual and “touch-and-feel” examination of your oral cavity.
