The importance of biannual dental visits can be summed up by talking about prevention, and early detection and treatment. At Chancellors Way Dental, we are committed to keeping your teeth and gums in optimal condition. And we need your help by coming in to our Guelph dental office every six months for an examination and teeth cleaning.
Dental plaque is public enemy number one when it comes to your oral wellness. Dietary sugar is a catalyst for the development of plaque, so it’s wise to limit your consumption of it, in both foods and drinks. When you brush your teeth, which you should do when you wake up and again before bed, along with a thorough flossing also before bed, you are succeeding in removing a great deal of the plaque on and between your teeth, and at the gum line. Some may remain out of reach of our toothbrush and dental floss, however. And it’s that plaque that turns into tartar, a hardened form. Unfortunately, it takes our teeth cleaning to eradicate tartar buildup effectively. Brushing and flossing don’t have much impact on it. In addition, if you are exhibiting any indications of early stage gum disease, gingivitis, even if you are not aware of it, our teeth cleaning will stop it from progressing and reverse its effects (a second cleaning might be required in stubborn cases). To the benefits already detailed, add that your dental exam as part of the same visit allows our dentist to find any loose fillings, restorations, or teeth so that they can be addressed proactively. And with the assistance of x-rays, cavities are found and filled before they can grow and put you at risk for a toothache, infection, root canal, or tooth extraction.
