Have you ever cancelled a dental cleaning appointment because you were too busy with work, too busy with the kids, or too busy with life? Undoubtedly.
And you may have justified it to yourself by saying, “It’s just a cleaning anyways.”
Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who is guilty of thinking it. Tens of millions of North Americans each year either neglect to schedule their routine dental appointments or cancel on-short notice because they do not place enough value on the “Cleaning” appointment.
Below are several reasons why the routine “Cleaning” appointment is probably the most important time you should designate for your own dental and overall health.
It’s More Than “Just A Cleaning” because …
It’s an opportunity to be screened for cancer
and get assessed for dental diseases with our
low-dose radiation digital x-rays.
It’s periodontal therapy – the most non-invasive
way to remove oral bacteria and stay healthy.
Left untreated, gum disease leads to tooth loss
and adversely impacts your health.
It’s an occasion for your child to have
a positive experience and for us to change
their perceptions of dental care.
It’s a cancer screening to assess
your mouth for signs of oral cancer and,
if indicated, perform biopsies.
It’s fluoride treatment to lower the risk of tooth decay,
strengthen teeth, kill bacteria and
reduce tooth hypersensitivity.
It’s a conversation with our Doctors and Hygienists
to discuss your treatment goals and provide you
with the information you need to make a well-informed
and balanced decision.
At Westmount Dental the Doctors and Hygienists do not underestimate its value, and neither should you.
Our dentists provide a full range of treatment including dental implants, root canal therapy, wisdom tooth surgery, sedation, Invisalign orthodontics, and cosmetic treatments. most importantly, our preventive dental care program aims to reduce the risk of you and your family requiring more invasive and costly treatment.
