Dental Maintenance & Prevention

Why Is Preventative Dental Care Important?

When it comes time to book your next dental appointment, you might be tempted to skip it. After all, what’s the harm in one less cleaning?

You’d be surprised. Maintenance and preventative care are integral to your oral health. If you neglect these routine appointments, you can end up with complications like: 

  • Gum disease. Do you have bad breath? Are your gums red and inflamed? If so, you may be displaying early signs of gum disease. This condition is irreversible in its later stages; prompt intervention is the key to successful treatment.
  • Infections. If bacteria enter the innermost chambers of your teeth or gum tissues, you may develop an infection. Oral infections are painful and harmful to your overall health.

Tooth loss. Teeth that are severely decayed are at risk of falling out. If you lose a tooth, it can lead to difficulty chewing and changes in your facial structure.

Dental Maintenance

Our Maintenance & Prevention Services

At our dental clinic, we’re committed to helping our patients avoid tooth pain and dental emergencies. We do that by offering an array of maintenance and prevention services, including:


Dental Cleanings

Mark it on your calendar: every six months, you should get another dental cleaning. This is one of the best ways to protect your oral health. Our dentists will remove any built-up plaque and tartar from your teeth. We’ll also take a closer look at each tooth to detect any cavities that may have developed. 


Dental Fillings

When you get a cavity, the best course of action is to act fast. Stop tooth decay before it advances with dental fillings. During your dental filling appointment, we’ll remove the decayed tooth material, and replace it with a metal or tooth-coloured filling. Your tooth will be just as healthy and strong as it was before the cavity. 


Root Canals

Do you need a root canal? This procedure can save teeth that are decayed, infected, or cracked. After your root canal, we’ll top your tooth with a crown to keep its structure and functionality intact.
