Good oral hygiene is important, not only for looks, but for general health as well. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, bone loss, heart disease, strokes and more. Regular cleanings can prevent bad breath, gum diseases and oral cancer. During a cleaning we can detect potential tooth problems, as well as create a treatment plan to restore your smile to a functional, healthy and beautiful state.
At Millwood Dental Centre, we recommend regular dental check-ups every 6-12 months to maintain a healthy smile. For some, healthy gums can be maintained by a polishing of teeth by one of our certified dental hygienists; for others, long term periodontal health can only be maintained by specialized deep cleanings at 3-4 month intervals.
