What Can You Expect From your Dental Cleaning
- Posted on: Nov 30 2018
If you can’t seem to remember the last time that you had your teeth professionally cleaned and examined, then you probably aren’t doing your mouth any favors. Dr. Slepchik encourages most patients to come in and get bi-annual cleanings to help fight off cavities, check for gum disease, and examine your overall oral health. Since it’s been so long since you came in to see Dr. Slepchik, this article will go over a few things that you can expect from your dental cleaning.
Usually, one of our dental hygienists will perform the dental examination which will then be reviewed by Dr. Slepchik at the end of the appointment. During the dental examination, the hygienist will check for gum disease, oral cancer, cavities, cracked teeth, and any other issues that you may have a problem with.
After your teeth have been examined, your dental hygienist will then perform your tooth cleaning. If you are uncomfortable at any moment during your dental cleaning, let your hygienist know; it is our priority to make sure that all of our patients feel as calm and comfortable as possible throughout their visit.
Meet With Dr. Slepchik
If everything looks normal, Dr. Slepchik will come in to chat with you for a bit. If, however, you need to schedule another appointment to treat an oral issue, then Dr. Slepchik will come in and talk to you about that.
According to the Canadian Dental Association (CDA) it is usually recommended that patients get their teeth cleaned every six months, but that does tend to vary from patient to patient. For instance, if you have really good oral health and haven’t had a cavity or dental problem in the past ten years, then Dr. Slepchik may say that you can wait a year. During your next dental examination, he will be able to discuss this with you in detail. To learn more, contact Dr. Slepchik at our Montreal office and contact us at 514-875-7971.
