Exam & Cleaning

Maintain Optimal Oral Health

At Vancouver Main Dentistry, we prioritize the importance of regular dental exams and cleanings as essential components of maintaining optimal oral health. Our skilled dental professionals are committed to providing thorough examinations and professional cleanings to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy for a lifetime.

The Importance of Dental Exams

Routine dental exams play a crucial role in identifying and addressing any potential oral health issues early on. During your dental exam, our experienced dental team will carefully assess the condition of your teeth, gums, and overall oral cavity. This allows us to detect any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, or other dental problems that may require treatment. Regular exams enable us to develop a personalized treatment plan to address any concerns and prevent further complications.

Benefits of Professional Dental Cleanings

Professional dental cleanings, often referred to as prophylaxis, are performed by our skilled dental hygienists. They are vital in maintaining good oral health and complementing your daily oral hygiene routine. The benefits of professional cleanings include:

  1. Plaque and Tartar Removal: Dental cleanings effectively remove the buildup of plaque and tartar that cannot be eliminated through regular brushing and flossing. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that contributes to tooth decay and gum disease. Tartar, on the other hand, is hardened plaque that can only be removed by a dental professional using specialized instruments.
  1. Prevention of Gum Disease: Regular dental cleanings help prevent gum disease by removing plaque and tartar that accumulate along the gumline. By maintaining healthy gums, you reduce the risk of inflammation, bleeding, and gum recession.
  2. Fresher Breath: Dental cleanings help eliminate bacteria that can cause bad breath. By removing plaque and tartar buildup, your mouth will feel cleaner and fresher after a professional cleaning.
  3. Early Detection of Oral Health Issues: During the cleaning, our dental professionals carefully examine your mouth for any signs of dental abnormalities or oral health concerns. Detecting issues early allows for prompt treatment and prevents more extensive dental problems in the future.

Maintaining Good Oral Health

To maintain good oral health, it is crucial to schedule regular dental exams and cleanings at least twice a year. Additionally, maintaining a consistent oral hygiene routine, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash, will help keep your teeth and gums healthy between dental visits.

At Vancouver Main Dentistry, we emphasize the importance of regular dental exams and cleanings in achieving and maintaining optimal oral health. Our experienced dental professionals provide thorough examinations and effective cleanings to identify and address any dental issues promptly. By scheduling regular dental check-ups and cleanings, you can enjoy a healthy smile and prevent more significant problems in the long run.
