It’s been said that your teeth require more care and maintenance than any other part of the body. Unfortunately, teeth often don’t receive the attention they need until it’s too late. Ignoring your oral health can have serious consequences, including disease, discomfort, and expensive dental work.
Ti Dental in the Chinook Professional Building provides dental exams & cleanings to monitor any changes in your teeth, watch for any signs of disease or decay, and remove plaque and tartar in places that are difficult to access at home.
A dental cleaning or dental hygiene treatment focuses on removing the mineral deposits that build up on your teeth. While brushing and flossing your teeth every day is important, dental plaque will still accumulate below the gumline and in hard to reach places. If these minerals (tartar) aren’t cleaned away, you may experience gum disease and maybe even tooth loss.
Your dental hygienist is a professional; they have the right tools and the right technique to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, even in the hard-to-reach-spots. While they work, the dental hygienist will make a note of any spots you might be missing in your oral hygiene routine. They’ll talk about what needs to change in your day-to-day tooth care, and make sure you have all the tools and information you need.
No matter how well you brush your teeth, you need to have your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis in order to maintain dental health. Your dental hygienist will help to determine how often you should schedule your appointments.
A dental exam is when a dentist examines each of your teeth and evaluates your overall oral health, including the health of your gums and your jaw.
A dentist will advise you on how often to have dental exams to help maintain dental health and to inform you of any potential issues before they lead to serious problems.
While dental exams and professional cleanings are an essential part of your oral hygiene routine so is brushing and flossing. You should be brushing your teeth at least twice per day, and flossing at least once per day. You should also brush your tongue to remove food particles and bacteria. This will help keep your breath fresh and prevent food particles and bacteria from moving back to your teeth after you brush.
To help ensure that you are brushing correctly, you should select a brush with soft bristles and a small head. The small head allows your toothbrush to remove plaque and food particles from hard to reach areas and the soft bristles help to prevent damage from aggressive brushing.
Ti Dental is easily found in suite 708 of the Chinook Centre Professional Tower. We hope to see you in our office soon.
