Keep your smile healthy and help prevent any dental issues by booking your regular oral examination and hygiene cleaning with our dentists in Tecumseh.
Ideally twice a year, you'll see your dentist for regular oral exams. These appointments allow your dentist the opportunity to catch any oral health issues and create a plan to treat them accordingly.
During your exam, your dentist will closely check the health of your teeth, gums, bite and jaw. Dental X-Rays and other diagnostic procedures may also be required.
Oral Health Care at Home
Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time to keep your smile healthy between dental appointments. We recommend flossing at least once every day.
To prevent and treat disease, your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums before or after your exam.
To start, a scaler will be used to remove any plaque buildup and tartar. Next, the hygienist will use a polisher topped with coarse toothpaste to remove any remaining stains or plaque. This will be followed by a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums.
Are you or your child at high risk of tooth decay? Your dentist may also recommend a fluoride treatment. This natural mineral can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
