A healthy smile takes regular care and maintenance. At 21st Century Dental Centre, we help our patients understand the importance of regular dental visits and proper brushing and flossing at home.
It’s important to visit 21st Century Dental Centre for regular dental hygiene visits.
You already know the importance of daily brushing and flossing, but there’s more to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. It’s very important to come into the 21st Century Dental Centre for regular hygiene visits.
These appointments provide your teeth and gums with a thorough cleaning, inspection, and preventative maintenance. Our friendly dental hygienists will "scale" your teeth — removing tartar build-up — and polish the surface — removing minor stains. You may also receive a fluoride treatment to help fight decay.
But hygiene visits are about much more than just cleaning. They give us an opportunity for us to tell you if you are brushing and flossing correctly, and examine your teeth and gums for potential problems.
If your teeth require restorative work, it's important we find out as soon as possible in order to prevent decay from spreading. It's also important to have your gums checked, because periodontal disease (gum disease) can lead to serious health problems — including heart disease.
Regular hygiene visits with the 21st Century Dental Centre team allow us to spot problems and take action immediately — preventing the issues from getting worse.
Contact 21st Century Dental Centre today to schedule a hygiene visit or learn more about our oral care program.
