Dental examination and cleaning

Nettoyage dentaire à Laval

Dental cleaning

Even if you have excellent oral hygiene, it’s very important to clean your teeth as often as your dentist or hygienist suggests. Cleaning removes plaque (an invisible film of bacteria that accumulates on the teeth), tartar (hardened, calcified plaque) and stains.

Cleaning improves the appearance of the smile and softens and polishes the tooth surface, making it less likely to accumulate plaque and tartar. This reduces inflammation and bleeding, and prevents gum disease and tooth loss.

L'examen dentaire

Dental examination

Brushing and flossing are excellent hygiene habits. Prevention is better than cure. However, we still recommend a complete oral examination every 6 months or so. This may vary depending on your dental health. During this appointment, which lasts about an hour, we scale, clean and polish your teeth.

At the first appointment, we take a digital X-ray of your mouth to obtain an accurate and complete diagnosis of your dental health. The dental examination allows us to detect the early signs of dental caries, periodontal disease, oral cancer, fractured teeth, cracks, defective fillings and infections, before the affected structures worsen.
