posted by sherway dentistry
When it comes to the health of your smile, taking simple steps throughout the year can go a long way towards preventing problems such as cavities and gum disease. At Sherway Dentistry in Etobicoke, ON, we prioritize preventive care to help you keep your smile healthy – just a few visits per year for gentle dental cleanings can keep you free from pain and out of the dental chair for more extensive and costly procedures.
Why are dental cleanings necessary?
With today’s hectic schedules, it can be easy to put off a trip to the dentist, especially if you are not in any pain and your teeth and gums feel healthy. However, there are several important reasons to see your dentist regularly for dental cleanings and check-ups:
Removal of tartar and plaque: Even with diligent brushing and flossing at home, plaque and tartar can build up in hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. Once plaque has hardened into tartar, it is not possible to remove it at home; with a gentle touch, we use specialized instruments to remove this decay-causing substance from your teeth so you have a fresh and clean slate.
Removal of surface stains: Tea, coffee, wine, and other food and beverage favorites can all leave their mark on your teeth. We use a gritty toothpaste to gently polish your teeth and remove surface stains, which leaves your smile gleaming!
Identify any potential problems at their earliest stage: Cavities and gum disease often go unnoticed by patients until they have progressed to a stage that is harder and more costly to treat. At your dental check-up, we use the latest dental technologies to identify potential issues at their earliest stages, before they would otherwise be detected.
Discuss any questions or concerns: Have your teeth been feeling more sensitive lately? Is there something you don’t like about your smile, such as stubborn stains that won’t go away? If so, your dental check-up is the perfect time to discuss your questions and concerns, and we can talk through the options available to you.
Whether you are due for your next check-up or it has been a while since you last saw a dentist, the team at Sherway dentistry is here to provide you with non-judgmental, compassionate dental care. To schedule your dental cleaning, call our Etobicoke, ON office today at 416.639.2546.
