Preventive Dentistry in Tooth + Gums

Proactively promoting optimal oral health in our community.

DENTAL EXAM AND CLEANING

Regular six month check-ups are imperative to maintaining optimal oral and overall health. Exams and cleanings are the first step in preventive dentistry in Tooth + Gums and consist of the following:

Time for questions and answers with your dentist
Comprehensive examination of your mouth using the latest technology
A cleaning performed by our trained hygienist
Discussion about your future treatment plan
Education in how to improve your oral hygiene

GUM DISEASE THERAPY

Periodontal (gum) disease gradually destroys the support of your natural teeth. If left unchecked, this disease can cause multiple issues including swollen or bleeding gums, intense pain, and even tooth loss. In fact, adults over 35 years lose more teeth to gum disease than cavities.

At Tooth Plus Gums multispeciality dental clinic, we can help you prevent gum disease through regular cleanings and effective oral hygiene. By thorough brushing and daily flossing, you can remove the buildup of plaque, which is caused by the foods we eat and other normal habits.

If your periodontal disease is advanced, tooth removal may need to occur. But whatever your circumstance, we are here to help.

LASER DENTISTRY

When performing preventive dentistry in Tooth + Gum, your expert dentists use the latest technology, including laser dentistry. Lasers are primarily used in periodontal care but are also very effective in cosmetic dentistry too.

The completely safe dental lasers deliver energy in the form of light to target (remove) decay, unwanted gum tissue, or as a way to whiten your teeth. Often, no local anaesthesia is required and the patient feels no pain. Lasers are extremely accurate and also prevent bleeding.

Dental lasers are both safe and effective when used on adults or children.

DENTAL SEALANTS

Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants use a tooth-colored acrylic “coating,” which is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This “seals” the deep grooves, acts as a barrier, and protects enamel from plaque and acids.

Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.

CHILDREN’S DENTISTRY

We recommend scheduling your child’s first regular dental visit after their third birthday. During their visit, our experienced and fun team will make them feel at ease and show the dentist doesn’t need to be scary.

Every member of our team makes sure to develop a good relationship with our younger patients, so they develop a good routine of visiting the dentist. We make sure to answer all questions from both child and parent.

Here’s what you can expect during your child’s first visit:

Examination of the mouth, teeth, and gums
Evaluation of adverse habits, like thumb-sucking
Check to see if your child needs fluoride
Teach your child about cleaning his or her teeth and gums
Suggest a schedule for regular dental visits

The visit will be at a pace comfortable to you and your child. Rest assured we are a judgement-free practice; we just want to help.
