The best dental care is preventative care. This is why our skilled hygiene team at our Midvale Dentist office will always do their best to ensure you keep your teeth and mouth healthy. Daily brushing and flossing is a must to keep your mouth and teeth in good condition. Antimicrobial mouthwashes are another way to keep up your dental hygiene, and prevent plaque buildup and gum disease.
Besides home care, we recommend keeping to your regular dental checkups at our practice. During these checkups, our dentists will be able to evaluate your current dental health, give any advice on how to improve your daily dental hygiene routine, point out risk areas and catch conditions in their early stages and prescribe treatment before the condition has serious consequences. These checks specifically look for any cavities in your mouth as well as any plaque buildup.
Plaque is a colourless film that builds up on teeth as a result of a mixture of the sugars and carbohydrates that we eat, as well as bacteria and saliva. Bacteria in plaque can damage our teeth and eventually cause damage and decay, normally resulting in cavities and gum disease.
If plaque build up is found on your teeth, our dentists are able to professional clean and polish your teeth, getting rid of any build up that normal brushing can not remove.
Having professional dental cleanings on a regular basis has several benefits, including removing stains and discolouration from the surface of your teeth, leaving you with a whiter and brighter smile; preventing gum disease and premature tooth loss. Our dentists will also be able to more easily pick up on signs of a tooth fracture or broken fillings.
