At Rideau Dental On 4th Street, we help our patients maintain their oral health and ensure no unwanted impact on their overall health through our comprehensive regular dental examinations and cleanings.
Our team of dentists have a method of going about a standard dental check-up. This specially designed checklist involves the assessment of several important facets of your oral health. The standard check-up involves a thorough evaluation of your teeth to ensure there is absolutely no trace of tooth decay and gum disease. The mandatory next step in the assessment is using X-rays to ensure there is nothing unusual either between or beneath the surface of your teeth. This is then followed by an assessment of your gums. A periodontal examination is conducted simply to discover if the gum is adequately adhering to your teeth. The purpose of this examination is to eliminate the possibility of bone loss or any other complicated disease.
The dental assessment continues as our dental hygienist proceeds to ascertain the presence of any cavity and to determine the quality of your previous dental fillings. The cleaning session begins as our designated dental hygienist proceeds to remove the accumulation of tartar that is commonplace among patients of all ages. Next, a polishing compound, and fluoride are used for a more comprehensive cleaning process. A professional cleaning session also involves the dentist flossing your teeth to rid them of unwanted particles.
At the end of the examination and the cleaning session, our team is in a position where they can accurately conclude if there is a need for an expansive dental treatment, depending on how healthy your teeth and gums are. Our dentist will also recommend a handful of tips that you can integrate to your dental routine if they find your dental hygiene doesn’t meet desired standards.
