Professional cleanings and checkups are an important part of good dental hygiene, and help prevent oral health issues. Toronto Smile Centre offers a family-friendly, relaxed atmosphere to put you at ease and make these regular visits to the dentist more pleasant. If you have any individual requirements, please let us know.
Even with an excellent dental hygiene routine, plaque can get missed, especially in hard-to-reach areas. This plaque builds up and hardens into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. If the plaque and tartar isn't removed, it can lead to tooth decay and infection. A professional teeth cleaning will remove plaque and tartar buildup, as well as polishing surface stains off of your teeth for a brighter smile. Preventative dentistry treatments such as fissure sealants or a fluoride treatment may also be completed.
This is a good opportunity too for your dentist to examine you for signs of gum disease or tooth decay, as well as do oral cancer screening to diagnose any concerns as soon as possible. Diagnostics such as X-rays can be done to spot issues that are too small to see and may not be causing you any pain or discomfort yet.
