Take Control of Your Oral Health with Routine Dental Exams and Cleanings

If your goal is to attain optimal dental health, routine dental exams and cleanings in Airdrie, Alberta, are a no-miss. Yes, you diligently brush and floss your teeth at home, but you can’t be too careful to eliminate all dental issues. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings at Creekside Dental Care complement your at-home dental care and compensate for the areas you may have missed at home. 

What to expect during your routine dental visit

Dentists recommend scheduling dental exams at least twice every year. However, if you are at risk of gum disease, decay, and other oral problems, you should increase this frequency to three to four times annually.

Dental exams are fast and painless, so you have nothing to worry about. During your exam, the dentist physically and visually inspects your teeth, gums, and other oral structures for signs of gum disease, decay, misalignments, etc. The dentist may also use other diagnostic tools like dental X-rays to unearth oral issues like bone loss, tooth impaction, and cysts, not visible to the naked eye. 

After your dental exam, it’s time for our dental hygienist to clean your teeth professionally. The dental hygienist uses special skills and tools to remove built-in plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. Next, we polish your teeth with gritty toothpaste for a smooth, glossy finish.

Benefits of dental exams and cleanings

Dental wellness visits are an essential component of your oral hygiene. Preventive dental visits offer numerous benefits.

Some include:

  • Prevention: Visiting your dentist bi-annually is vital in preventing numerous oral issues, including gum disease, decay, bad breath, etc. Preventing oral issues wards off unnecessary pain and costly treatments
  • Detection of oral issues: Dental visits allow the dentist to inspect your mouth to unearth oral problems that may have passed your notice at home. Dentists are specially trained to identify even minute changes in your smile for proper treatment
  • Protecting the overall body: Do you know your mouth is the gateway to your overall body? Because of this mouth-body connection, it’s vital to safeguard your oral health to protect your body from systematic issues like diabetes, heart disease, etc.
