We believe strongly that prevention is always the best treatment regardless of age. Our preventative package is tailored individually for each client and it usually consists of an examination including an oral cancer screen, an examination of the teeth, gums and soft tissue, your jaw joints and how the teeth come together(occlusion), any required x-rays/radiographs, teeth cleaning (scaling/rootplaning) and caries prevention treatment (fluoride applications, desensitizers, oral hygiene instruction).
The recommended frequency of visits is determined by your homecare and the condition of your teeth and gums. If you have existing gum disease or untreated decay we would prefer to see you more frequently to ensure the condition of your teeth and gums does not deteriorate. If things are generally health we generally see our patients every six months.
