When it comes to your oral health, prevention of disease consists of a consistent brushing and flossing routine supplemented by once or twice annual dental exams and regular dental cleaning.
Prevention and Early Detection
During your checkup at our Saskatoon clinic, we look at the general condition of your teeth and gums, and screen for early signs of any potential problems. This includes oral cancer screening, digital radiography, periodontal charting, and the dental evaluation. Because oral health is strongly linked with overall health, we will discuss any changes to your overall health and lifestyle which might influence your oral health. Seeing you regularly for a dental exam allows us to identify any potential risks and discuss mitigation before damage occurs and costly or uncomfortable treatments are the only solutions left.
Oral Health Maintenance
In general, your teeth are really strong. In fact, human teeth stored in a box would remain unchanged for centuries. The trouble is, our teeth live in our mouths where they are constantly subjected to attack by oral bacteria, acids in food and drink, and physical force as a result of lifestyle and habits, sports or other high-impact activities. All of these things are a part of daily life that cause significant wear and tear over time. When you visit your dentist regularly, we can keep a close watch on the condition of your teeth and gums in order to provide the oral health services that keep your smile beautiful and healthy for life.
