Etobicoke family dentist at Dundas West Dentistry, offer teeth cleaning services and preventative hygiene care because oral cleanings are essential for your dental wellbeing and a great smile! Scheduling regular hygiene and dental check-up appointments is highly encouraged in order to assure your oral health is maintained and any dental issues are detected as soon as possible - a key part of successful dental treatment is early diagnosis.Our preventative hygiene treatment includes the following services:
- Teeth cleaning
- Removal of tartar/plaque build-up
- Gums assessment
- Gum disease/Gingivitis treatment or detection
- Oral decay assessment
- Manual oral cancer inspection
- Keeping patients informed about their dental health
It's important that patients schedule regular oral examinations and hygienist cleanings, since most dental problems are best treated during initial stages and early diagnosis gives us a higher chance of achieving your treatment goals. During these check-ups, we will also consult with you about your at-home oral care and advise you on brushing, flossing, and other practices that will improve your oral health. One of our top priorities is making sure our patients are well informed and confident when taking care of their teeth without us!Extractions:
Sometimes, damaged or infected teeth need to be removed in order to avoid causing oral complications and infringing on the health of your other teeth. Tooth extractions are necessary in cases such as:
- Decay beyond repair or treatment
- Bone loss
- Misalignment due to wisdom tooth eruption
Tooth extraction prevents the spread of infection and can be done surgically in some specific cases where a more attentive and detailed extraction is necessary in order to protect patients' gums. However, the most common cases of extractions are usually non-surgical, simple procedures where your Etobicoke dentist uses forceps and local anesthesia to remove your unhealthy tooth.
If you or your child's wisdom teeth have erupted, book an appointment at our Etobicoke dental office so we can make sure the growth of the tooth doesn't disturb your alignment or ruin your smile! Once a tooth is extracted, we can provide you with treatment options that will help fill any gaps in your smile such as implants, bridges, or partial dentures.
