It is our desire to provide for your dental needs as thoroughly and efficiently as possible. Complete oral health care comprises not only the elimination of existing dental diseases but the ultimate goal of prevention. Good oral hygiene habits are the foundation of healthy teeth and need to be established from childhood.
During your visit with the hygienist, your teeth and gums will be thoroughly examined and any irregularities noted. Plaque and surface stains will be removed with gentle scraping and polishing, using the latest technologies and products.
We will offer you a specific oral hygiene program designed to suit your individual needs. This could involve several visits to see the hygienist in a year, combined with a fresh breath treatment plan using the latest professional products and a specific home cleaning regime to ensure that the build-up of harmful levels of plaque is prevented.
We highly encourage Preventive Care dental appointments with our hygienists on a regular basis to give you the best opportunity for long-term dental health. Our goal is to help our patients keep their teeth for a lifetime.
A word on Oral cancer: With the overall increase in oral cancer incidence rates, we have made it our mission to detect oral cancer at an early stage and save a life. In addition to the routine head and neck examination, we are equipped with the Velscope oral cancer screening device which helps to detect abnormal tissue changes before they are apparent to the naked eyes. We are happy to provide this service free of charge to all our patients over 18 years of age during the routine exam. We strongly recommend a preventive appointment on a regular 6 months interval.
