Hygiene Services in New Westminster
Your smile is an important part of your health, quality of life, and personality. Our team will partner with you by providing quality care to maintain or improve your teeth, gums, and oral health. Our experienced dentists provide a wide range of dental treatments to keep you smiling for years to come.
We encourage all of our patients to attend six-month checkups to prevent minor dental problems from spiraling out of control. At your checkup, your dental hygienists will inspect your soft tissues for oral cancer, periodontal disease, and other problems. The dentist will also look at each tooth in your mouth to assess problems like tooth decay or cracks, as well as old dental work. Sometimes old dental work wears and needs to be replaced.
By evaluating every six months, we can often reduce the potential for large dental problems. For instance, left untreated, a small cavity can grow to destroy an entire tooth and spread to surrounding teeth. A cracked tooth can cause pain or break off and create additional problems. Furthermore, advanced gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss for adults, and oral cancer causes more than 7,500 deaths each year. Caught and treated early, these diseases can be controlled.
If you have not scheduled a checkup lately, be sure to call us now to make your appointment! Children as young as three should visit the dentist, and by age four or five, a child should attend regular checkups.
