Dental Checkups

Dr and dental assistant conversing with patientScheduling a checkup every six months is one of the best steps to ensure your teeth stay healthy for life. Each time you book a scale and clean with our dental therapist, you’ll receive a complimentary hygiene pack to help you maintain your fresh smile between visits.

Feeling Anxious? We’ll Keep You at Ease!

Did you know that you can request nitrous oxide sedation (happy gas) during your scale and clean? If you generally feel nervous about seeing a dentist or have particularly sensitive teeth, we encourage you to opt for this light sedation.

Preventative Care

During your clean, we’ll polish away surface stains to leave your smile feeling smoother and free from added discolouration. Our oral health therapist will carefully remove tartar and plaque buildup to create a healthy environment for your teeth and gums.

Gum Disease Screenings

If you have active periodontitis (gum disease), we will want to take certain steps to treat the infection before it leads to tooth loss. Let us know if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Swollen gums that bleed easily
  • Receding gumlines (“long teeth”)
  • Bad breath
  • Tooth mobility
  • Heavy tartar buildup

During your periodontal exam, we will measure where your gums attach at each tooth. A series of X-rays will show your bone levels, allowing us to pinpoint more aggressive areas of gum disease that require attention.

When gum disease is present, we’ll recommend a scaling and root planing (deep clean) instead of a preventative clean to halt symptoms at the source of the infection.

Frequently Asked Questions

What If I Need Treatment?

Should you require immediate care, we will take steps to get you out of pain on the same day. Otherwise, the necessary procedures will be booked at your earliest convenience.

How Often Do My Teeth Need to Be Cleaned?

Our healthy patients should plan on scheduling a checkup every six months. If you have recently been treated for gum disease, plan on booking a periodontal maintenance appointment every 3-4 months.

Will I Need X-rays?

We will take intermittent X-rays as needed to evaluate parts of your mouth not visible during a visual exam. Digital imaging makes it possible to screen for cavities between and inside of teeth, as well as cysts, abscesses and other concerns.
