A healthy mouth is important for a number of reasons. Tooth cleanings help prevent aesthetic issues such as discoloration and stains, but they are equally important for the overall health of your body. Bacteria in your mouth can cause tooth decay and gum disease.
These common dental problems can lead to a number of systemic issues including:
- Heart disease
- Respiratory issues
- Pregnancy complications including premature birth
Problems with oral health can also and eventually require root canal therapy, tooth extractions, or surgical intervention.
When you visit Aesthetic Dental Studio every six months for regular cleanings, our experienced general dentistry staff can remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar to help prevent these problems from occurring.
General Dental Visits
Your biannual visits to our Calgary general dentistry office serve the dual purpose of preventing and treating potential oral health issues. During your cleaning we will remove plaque and tartar that even the most thorough at-home routine fails to reach. Much of this buildup cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. The instruments we use to remove buildup and polish your teeth provide you with the healthiest smile possible.
In addition to a professional cleaning, your dental checkup will include a thorough examination of your jaw, bite alignment, and detection of early signs of tooth decay, periodontal disease, vitamin deficiencies, and diseases like oral cancer and diabetes. Early detection is often necessary for proper treatment of oral health issues. By detecting these problems in their earliest stages, we can help prevent larger medical issues from occurring.
We are devoted to providing our patients with the cleanest, healthiest smiles possible. If a potential issue is detected, we can we can work with you to identify the best treatment options available to ensure your mouth and body remain healthy and strong.
