Teeth cleaning/hygiene services at Victoria Avenue Dental – Your General Cranbrook Dentist
Contrary to popular belief, brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day is often not enough to maintain a suitable level of oral hygiene. Although brushing and flossing twice daily is not in any way detrimental to your oral health, it is recommended that you book periodic dental appointments with your general Cranbrook dentist, to maintain adequate dental hygiene practices. Whether it is for a general dental cleaning, or a comprehensive dental treatment, visiting your general Cranbrook dentist on a regular basis for a variety of dental procedures enables you to adequately maintain your oral hygiene. Here at Victoria Avenue Dental your general dentist, Dr. Brett Bevans and the team are pleased to assist you in enhancing and improving your overall dental health.
If it is your first time to visit our general dentist or you are nervous about your dental procedure, there is nothing that you should be worried or concerned about. The experienced and friendly team led by Dr. Brett Bevans at Victoria Avenue Dental, will work with you to ensure that you feel as relaxed and comfortable during the entirety of your dental appointment. A routine dental checkup often involves a two step process, where the first portion of the appointment is known as a dental examination, while the second portion is dedicated to the actual cleaning of your teeth, gums, and mouth.
During the dental exam, your general dentist will conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, and jaw to assess the overall quality and health of your mouth. An x-ray may also be used to determine if there are any underlying dental problems or signs of infection and decay. Upon the completion of the dental examination, your general dentist will then proceed with the cleaning portion of your appointment. To initiate the process, your general dentist will use a scaling tool to identify and remove tartar and plaque that could lead to gingivitis or gum disease. Your general dentist will then brush your teeth and gums with dental paste and a spinning brush head. Floss and mouthwash may be used to complete the process, and if deemed necessary you may be given a fluoride solution to strengthen your tooth’s enamel.
