Our philosophy is based on prevention. The best way to avoid big problems with your dental health is to monitor and maintain your dental health with regular check-ups and cleanings at Wasaga Dental.
Having good oral hygiene at home, which includes brushing and flossing, helps to remove debris and bacteria in your mouth. However, with the combination of saliva and different foods, some amount of plaque and tartar stays with you. During your dental cleaning, the dentist or dental hygienist at Wasaga Dental will use special tools to remove plaque and tartar (which can cause gum disease) between your teeth and under the gum line. Your teeth will also be polished to remove stains that build up from coffee, tea, wine and other foods. If your check up shows that you are losing bone and there are signs of active gum disease, we may decide to complete your cleaning over two appointments in order to properly access the deeper pockets.
