Oral Examinations in Etobicoke

Regular oral exams roughly every six months, give your dentist the opportunity to identify any oral health issues and make a plan to treat them accordingly. 

During your exam, your dentist will take a close look at the health of your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite. Exams may also include dental X-rays, an oral cancer screening, and other diagnostic procedures.

Oral Cancer Screening in Etobicoke

Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth and surrounding tissues. During your exam, your dentist will check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer which are difficult to detect with the naked eye. 

Oral Health Care at Home

Between checkups, it is important to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time and floss at least once per day to help your smile stay healthy.

Hygiene Cleaning in Etobicoke

Before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to prevent and treat disease.

They will start with a scaler to clear away any tartar and plaque build-up. Next, they will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains or plaque, followed by a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment in Etobicoke

If you or your child has a high risk of tooth decay, your dentist may also recommend a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
