Personalized Dental Care in Vancouver
The great thing about oral hygiene is that basic steps can help prevent terrible outcomes like tooth decay and gum disease. These issues are entirely preventable! At Vancouver Emergency Dentist, it’s our pleasure to help you and your family learn the best ways to keep your teeth healthy and strong.
Relying on Regular Checkups
Did you know that daily brushing and flossing actually count as preventative care? Right from your home, you can care for your teeth and mouth, though that doesn’t mean you can avoid going to the dentist at regular intervals.
At Vancouver Emergency Dentist, you’ll receive personalized care to help you and your family members maintain great oral health. Coming in just twice a year can help you prevent the onset of tooth decay and gum disease, and if there are issues developing, we can take steps early on to prevent those issues from worsening. If caught early enough, gum disease can actually be completely reversed!
Understanding Your Checkup Routine
Dental checkups for kids and adults generally constitute a cleaning and exam. During teeth cleanings, plaque buildup, known as tartar, is removed, fluoride treatments are sometimes administered (often to children) and polishing is performed. All of these procedures should be fairly quick and generally painless. The longer you wait between cleanings, the more intense these appointments can be, but our staff will do everything possible to keep you comfortable as we get you back on the path of great dental care.
A professional cleaning and exam should be scheduled about every six months (for both children and adults). If you’re concerned about your teeth or mouth, don’t hesitate to come in sooner, but at the very least you should be seeing a dentist twice a year.
Scheduling Your Next Cleaning
Preventative care is key if you want to avoid intense and in-depth dental procedures. If it’s been too long since your last cleaning and exam, call Vancouver Emergency Dentist today. We’ll do our best to fit you in as soon as possible.
