Routine Dental Exams & Cleanings Help Protect Your Smile

Dental exams are more than just a chance to get your teeth cleaned and flossed. Think of these visits as a full health checkup for your mouth—including your teeth, gums, throat, and jaw.

We’re not just removing stubborn dental plaque and tartar. We’re also checking if you’re comfortable. Regular dental exams help us detect potential problems early when they’re easiest to manage.

Why Preventive Dental Care Works

Addressing dental concerns in their earliest stages can save you time and discomfort. That’s because dental problems are often more straightforward and less expensive to treat when caught early. 

We can help reverse gingivitis (gum inflammation), treat bruxism with custom mouthguards, and restore damaged teeth with tooth-coloured fillings, crowns, and dental bonding. 

By intervening early, we can reduce the need for more invasive treatments, like dental surgery or root canal therapy.

Regular cleanings also polish your teeth, helping them stay bright and fresh. By starting now, we can help enhance your smile today and maintain your long-term oral health.

What to Expect at Your Dental Exams & Cleanings

Our goal is to make dental exams and cleanings quick and comfortable. Here are a few common steps you can expect at your regular dental exam and cleaning.

Comprehensive Exam

Dr. Papadopoulos will examine your teeth, gums, and oral cavity, checking for any signs of problems. If needed, we may recommend digital X-rays so we can get a detailed view of your teeth and jawbone, allowing for a more thorough exam.

Professional Cleaning

One of our hygienists will gently remove plaque and tartar buildup using ultrasonic tools. Next, your hygienist will floss and polish your teeth so your smile can feel refreshed and regain its natural shine.

Personalized Recommendations

Dr. Papadopoulos and your hygienist will discuss your oral health and provide personalized recommendations. Whether you’re looking for a few home routine tips or a custom mouthguard, we’re here to support you.

General Dentistry Can Prevent Gum Disease & Tooth Decay

Preventive dental care plays a vital role in preventing gum disease and tooth decay, 2 of the most common oral health problems.

Gum Disease

Plaque buildup irritates the gums, leading to gingivitis (gum inflammation). Regular cleanings help remove plaque, preventing gingivitis from progressing into gum disease, a more serious condition that can cause tooth loss or damage to the jawbone.

Tooth Decay

Plaque can harden into tartar, which traps bacteria that produce acids. These acids erode tooth enamel, leading to cavities. Cleanings help remove tartar, and regular exams allow Dr. Papadopoulos to identify and treat cavities in their early stages.
