Maintain good Oral Health and Wellness with Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings

Drs. Roodsar, Gholizadeh, and Rezaei of Respond Dental in North York, Ontario know how critical it is to maintain a smile by visiting the dentist often for dental examinations and cleanings. These check-ins allow the dental team to monitor the oral health and wellness of a patient over time to ensure problems such as periodontal disease or cavities do not develop. During these appointments, patients will have a deep cleaning of the teeth performed, along with a dental examination. That may or may not include x-rays, depending on the patient’s unique dental situation. 

Why are cleanings and examinations important? 

Our dentists at Respond Dental believe that proactive care can reduce or eliminate the risk of problems occurring within the smile. That includes infection, periodontal disease, tooth decay, and other issues that might arise. Our team uses dental cleanings for plaque and tartar removal from the teeth and gums. For patients who have been diagnosed with gingivitis or periodontal disease, periodontal cleaning along with antibiotics for the infection may be recommended. During an evaluation, if any concerns are found, our team will voice these concerns with the patient and provide them with their treatment options. Once patients have achieved a healthy smile, they can work with our team to improve their appearance using cosmetic dentistry treatments. Our full-service dental facility provides general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry to help children and adults improve their smiles’ appearance, function, and health! 

How often are dental cleanings needed? 

Patients who do not have periodontal disease, infections, or cavities will find that a dental cleaning every six months is sufficient, along with proper home health habits such as brushing and flossing after every meal. Patients diagnosed with certain conditions may need to visit the practice more often, anywhere between three to four months, for deep cleanings.
