Oral Examinations in Ottawa

Attending a dentist appointment twice a year gives your dentist an opportunity to complete a routine oral exam. Any oral health issues can also be identified at this time and your dentist can create a plan to treat them accordingly.

During the exam, your dentist will look closely at the condition of your gums, teeth, jaw, and bite. These exams may also include an oral cancer screening, dental x-rays and any other diagnostic procedures that may be needed.

Oral Cancer Screening in Ottawa

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

Oral Health Care at Home

Keep your smile healthy between dental appointments by brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. You should also floss at least once per day.

Hygiene Cleaning in Ottawa

Your dental hygienist will complete a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums before or after your oral exam to prevent and treat disease. 

To start, a scaler will be used to rid your teeth of any plaque and tartar buildup. Next, your dentist will use a polisher with coarse toothpaste to remove any remaining plaque or stains, and follow up with a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums.

We strongly believe in that a prevention-first approach to oral health is always the best treatment, regardless of the patient's age. By actively preventing decay and disease with a combination of regular home care and professional dental cleanings and exams, you can maintain a healthy smile. 

Dental Appliances in Ottawa

Dental appliances are a critical component of preventive dental treatment, as they are designed to help protect the health of your oral cavity.

Typically, dental appliances are used to supplement dental treatment and are designed to help protect our oral structures from damage. They are often part of dental treatment plans.

Custom-made dental appliances are created in a lab to fit your unique mouth to offer the best possible fit and protection.

These mouth guards can be used to protect your teeth and soft tissues when you play sports or engage in athletic activities.
