Prevention. Early detection. Treatment. At Peachland Dental Centre our dental hygienists offer professional Oral Hygiene & Cleaning.
At Peachland Dental Centre early detection and prevention are key to good oral health and dental hygiene that can last a lifetime. With regular check ups by your dental hygienist, we'll be able to better evaluate what your particular risks and needs are, and tailor your oral health care and dental cleanings just for you.
Your dental hygienist will begin with a comprehensive soft tissue examination and then screen for signs of gum disease, also known as periodontal disease.
Then, we'll complete a detailed charting of cavities, existing restorations that often includes fillings, crowns and other pre-existing tooth conditions.
With schedules being what they are for busy families, we recommend you allow about an hour for your dental hygiene appointment.
While we recommend that children and adults have their teeth cleaned at least once very 6-12 months, how often a patient should visit their dentist depend entirely on the health of their teeth and gums.
For patients who are concerned that they may be at risk because of age, tobacco use, rate of accumulation of deposits, personal oral hygiene practices, or medical conditions such as diabetes – a more aggressive oral health maintenance plan may be required. As always, we're on-hand to answer any questions you may have.
The fact is gum health greatly impacts the overall health of your mouth and entire body. While there are many factors that can increase your chances of developing gum disease including smoking and side-effects of many medications, regular dental hygiene check ups can help identify the signs early and help prevent further infection.
For patients who require periodontal therapy we offer everything from root planning, root scaling, deep cleanings, soft tissue treatments – even surgery where necessary.
