General Examination & Hygiene - Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek - Gisborne Dental House

We know you brush your teeth at home, but even brushing twice each day, every day can fall short as bacteria find places to hide in between and around teeth. Bacteria can turn into a sticky film that collects even more bacteria as it builds up and then hardens on the teeth. This substance is known as dental caries, calculus, or tartar and can affect anyone, and can even hide under the gumline.

Fortunately, professional hygiene services help remove the tartar and prevent gum infection and disease. With specialized tools and a great view from where the hygienist stands, your teeth can be cleared of the plaque buildup no matter where it hides. You may also receive fluoride treatments and advice on home treatments and diet to keep your oral health in top shape. Our patients enjoy professional cleanings as part of their oral health prevention program and to keep their smile and breath as fresh as possible.

Prevent Dental Problems with Regular Dental Examinations

 

When dental problems like cavities go untreated, they can become large problems that lead to bad breath and tooth loss. Bacteria can also grow from between teeth and turn into an infection that may spread throughout the body if left unchecked. That’s why we recommend our patients maintain regular checkups that make it easy for the dentist to find problems and treat them right away. This gives patients a peace of mind that they are doing all they can to maintain their oral health. The following are some of the problems we can find and quickly treat before they become larger issues:

Tooth decay and infection
Impacted or problematic wisdom teeth that can damage surrounding teeth
Plaque or tartar that can quickly turn into gum disease
We can treat all stages of gum disease to stop it from spreading through your body
Worn teeth due to teeth grinding or wear

Some of Our Patients’ Results

Early Detection for Health Problems

 

Getting regular dental examinations may help detect health issues in other areas of your body, since all body systems are interrelated. At the same time, certain health issues may also mean a patient is at a higher risk for certain dental problems. Fortunately, our dentists are trained to identify oral health problems and are familiar with the health issues they may be linked to. Regular dental exams can help your dentist stay on top of your health and keep health issues at bay. The following are some of the more common health issues that are linked with oral health.

Diabetes

puts patients at a higher risk for gum disease, because if your blood is high in sugar, so is your saliva. To make things worse, gum disease can make controlling blood sugar more difficult and may take longer to heal in patients with diabetes. Regular dental examinations and hygiene can help you stay in charge of your health.

Candida

Candida overgrowth is when candida bacteria spread out of control. This common condition is also known as thrush and may look like white patches in the mouth. In some cases, these patches may be painful. Professional dental hygiene and cleanings will bring your mouth into top shape and help ward off future infections.

Acid Reflux

is when stomach acid backs up into the esophagus and mouth. This condition can erode tooth enamel, making your teeth more sensitive. Thinning tooth enamel can cause your teeth to weaken and break. When you have regular dental checkups, your dentist can detect if your teeth are eroding and take action to treat or protect your teeth.

Leukemia

is treated through chemotherapy, and both the disease and treatment can lead to gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. Rarely, recurring gum disease may be a warning sign of health issues. If you are being treated for leukemia, professional dental cleanings may help save your teeth. Regular dental checkups will allow your dentist to stay on top of your oral health so they can watch for indications of other health issues leading to early treatment.

Obviously not all dental problems are linked to medical problems, but prevention is always the best and most effective treatment. Dental problems are no fun and can negatively impact your life with fatigue, pain, and enjoying your favorite foods. At the same time, early detection and treatment of oral health issues can save you a lot of time and pain and can save your teeth.

Aesthetic and Cosmetic Treatments

 

 A general examination and professional hygiene services will keep your mouth healthy and your teeth looking their best. And when you are ready, we also provide tooth whitening, teeth alignment with Invisalign, porcelain veneers, and one-day crowns if you want to update your smile. And the best part is that modern dental treatments are more comfortable than ever and we can work with anxious patients using sedation dentistry, if needed.
