Regular dental visits are an essential component of your primary health care provision. Good oral health is key to your overall well-being, and our providers are here to take care of all your needs! Our full service family practice keeps patients healthy by providing preventive and restorative care, oral cancer screening, gum and jaw treatments, and a full range of cosmetic and orthodontic procedures to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
Regular hygiene cleanings, check-ups, a healthy diet, and at-home oral care are the best ways of keeping your teeth healthy and preventing problems from developing! The Canadian Dental Association recommends seeing your dentist and dental hygienist every 6 months, but the frequency of your visits can vary depending on the state of your oral health. Children should have their first dental checkup between the age of 6 at 12 months, or when their teeth first start to appear.
When it comes to oral health concerns, prevention truly is the best medicine; a range of common problems (including cavities, gum disease, and toothache,) can often be prevented or improved by keeping up with good oral health habits at home. Our preventative care regimen recommends:
- Brushing at least twice day, for two minutes
- Eating a healthy diet, low in sugary foods
- Fluoride rinses and in-office treatment as recommended
- Placing sealants on young, permanent teeth
- Avoiding smoking
Our goal is to see our patients happy and healthy, and our compassionate providers are always happy to address any oral health concerns you might have. We’re here to help, so please do not hesitate to ask any question you might have during your next appointment at 7Dental!
