Our dentists at dentalhouse Victoria Dental Arts in Belleville take a preventive approach to your dental care.
Preventive Oral Examinations in Belleville
Ideally, you should come to our office twice a year for regular oral exams so that your dentist can identify any oral health issues. We will then plan how to treat them.
During your appointment, your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite. Dental x-rays, an oral cancer screening, and other diagnostic procedures may be included in your exam.
Oral Cancer Screening in Belleville
Did you know that any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues can be affected by oral cancer? Your dentist will look for signs, which can be difficult to detect with the naked eye, on your face, lips, throat, tissues, gums, and tongue.
Oral Health Care at Home
Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day, and floss once a day at the very least. This will assist you in keeping your smile healthy in between dental appointments.
Preventive Hygiene Cleaning in Belleville
Your dental hygienist is your partner in disease prevention and treatment. He or she will clean your teeth and gums before or after your exam.
To begin, a scaler will be used to scrape away any plaque or tartar buildup. They will then remove any remaining stains or plaque with a polisher and coarse toothpaste. After the cleaning, your teeth and gums will be flossed.
Fluoride Treatment in Belleville
If you or your child is at high risk of tooth decay, your dentist may also advise you to get a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can aid in the rebuilding of minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse decay.
