Regular hygiene cleanings, exams, and preventive dental care are important to protecting long-term oral health for children, teens and adults.
A Prevention-First Approach
We are passionate believers in a prevention-first approach when providing treatment for patients of all ages - adults, teens, and children. Along with at-home care, regular professional dental cleanings and exams at North Burnaby Dental Group contribute to preventing disease in your teeth and gums.
When you come in for a dental exam, you give our dentists the opportunity to diagnose any oral health issues before they become problematic.
At our practice, routine dental examinations typically include:
- Examination of teeth, gums, and mouth
- Digital x-rays
- Oral cancer screening
Help prevent gum disease and tooth decay by seeing your dentist for a professional dental cleaning.
During a professional cleaning, your hygienist or dentist will:
- Remove plaque from your teeth
- Remove tartar (calculus) above and beneath the gum line
- Remove stains from teeth and polish them
Professional cleanings with one of our hygienists helps maintain a beautiful, fresh smile, and optimal oral health. In tandem, our dentist will examine your oral cavity to identify any gum problems at their earliest and most treatable stages.
