Prevent Dental Problems with Our Comprehensive Dentistry
Ensuring you have good oral hygiene coupled with regularly visiting your dentist for checkups is the best way to prevent dental disasters. At Cowan Heights Dental Centre, we take preventative dental care very seriously. We want to ensure our patients have healthy smiles with teeth that will last a lifetime. Our typical preventative dental care consists of:
- Dental examinations and cleanings: At your dental exam, our dentists examine your teeth, gums and mouth, looking for signs of disease and other problems. We also perform thorough cleanings using special instruments to remove built-up plaque and tartar, which can cause gum disease, cavities, bad breath and other issues.
- X-rays: A diagnostic element to your dental healthcare, x-rays are also a preventative measure that help your dentist diagnose potential dental health issues before they become major problems. X-rays can find cavities, look at tooth roots, check the health of your jawbone and see the status of developing teeth.
- TMJ diagnosis and treatment: Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a joint that connects your lower and upper jaw. Dentists are often concerned about this joint because, if you have TMJ pain, it could be caused by your teeth. If you’re experiencing jaw pain, we can evaluate your jaw to diagnose if you have this problem and provide you with effective treatment.
Be sure to schedule your dental examinations and cleanings regularly! Call us today to set up an appointment.
