Dental Hygiene and Dental Exams

Have you visited PerioPartners™ lately for supportive periodontal therapy or a dental exam?

Professional Dental Hygiene

We recommend regular dental hygiene and exams to spot oral health issues. It’s important to detect them as early as possible. It will allow us to specifically suggest the best treatment options for you and your family.

The best way to combat pellicle, the thin layer of debris on your teeth, is by brushing, rinsing and flossing daily. Nonetheless, the best defence of plaque and bacteria for your teeth is with the use of dental instruments. One of our friendly and professional dental hygienists will clean your teeth by removing tartar (calculus), plaque, and stains. At your visit, you will also receive instructions for preventive care at home. In addition, product recommendations will be made to increase your chances of success.

We recommend dental hygiene visits every 3 to 6 months to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy. The following result will reduce the risk of gingivitis (gum disease).

*Keep in mind, however, that the frequency of dental hygiene visits will be individualized based on the current condition of your mouth, and your individual oral health needs.

Periodontal Exams

Regular periodontal exams are just as important as seeing your dental hygienist if you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease. The frequency of examinations should typically be between 6 – 12 months. However, this schedule will be individualized to meet your personal oral health needs. Everyone has unique dental needs. At PerioPartners™, we customize a treatment plan to meet yours.

During your dental exam, our doctors will look for any oddities and oral health issues. Your dentist will address them before they have a chance to create more serious problems down the line. Digital x-rays will be taken of your teeth to ensure not to miss issues that aren’t easily spotted with the naked eye.
