During a preventive care visit, our dentist or dental hygienist will examine your teeth for signs of decay. The hygienist, who specializes in the cleaning and maintenance of teeth and gums, will remove any tartar, hardened plaque also known as calculus that has accumulated on your teeth.
This process involves cleaning the crown of the tooth and below the gum line where plaque is often trapped. Our hygienist will polish your teeth after they are scaled. Children under 18 years of age will have fluoride applied to their teeth at the end of their visit.
At the end of a preventive care appointment, your dentist or hygienist will instruct you to follow proper home care and brushing techniques. If required, your dentist will also perform a final examination before you leave.
Wearing a Mouthguard is an important precaution for athletes of all ages and abilities, helping to protect against chipped or broken teeth, root and bone damage, and tooth loss. Mouthguards also safeguard against serious injuries such as jaw fracture, cerebral hemorrhage, concussion and neck injuries by helping to avoid situations where the lower jaw jams into the upper jaw. By keeping soft tissue in the mouth away from the teeth, Mouthguards help prevent cutting and bruising of the lips, tongue and cheeks, especially for athletes who wear orthodontic appliances.
