When it comes to maintaining optimal oral health, it is important to make sure you are seeing your dentist when you should be. Many patients we see at West Humber Dentistry are under the impression that dental care isn’t needed unless you are experiencing a toothache, which is completely wrong. We recommend routine dental care at least twice a year for each of our patients at West Humber Dentistry. For those that suffer from periodontal gum disease or other chronic dental conditions, more frequent professional dental care may be recommended.
At West Humber Dentistry, we understand that if you are like most people, the dental office is probably one of the last places you want to be. In fact, many people skip routine dental care altogether due to their fear of the dentist, however, skipping appointments can actually do much more harm than good for your wellbeing and overall health.
Routine visits to your dentist for professional care are highly important due to the fact that many oral health issues such as tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and even oral cancer can develop with no symptoms at all until the condition has become advanced and more problematic. During your routine appointment in Rexdale, our dentist thoroughly examines your smile, gums, tongue, and overall oral health to check for any risk factors or signs of dental issues. In the event that an issue is noticed, a treatment plan can be created early, prior to your dental issue advancing and requiring more invasive care. At West Humber Dentistry, we believe patient education is highly important and always take the time to explain our findings, any recommended treatments and also the potential outcomes. If patients have additional questions, we’re also always happy to answer those as well.
Along with your routine dental examination, during your routine appointment with your dentist, a professional dental examination is also performed. For many patients, reaching every tiny area of the mouth is pretty much impossible, leaving areas where debris, bacteria, and plaque can hide. With professional care, we can ensure every area of your mouth is spotless.
