Professional hygiene services keep London smiles gleaming
A beautiful smile begins with a healthy mouth. That is a simple concept, but everyone needs some professional help to accomplish it. Hygiene services at Downtown Dental Centre Family Practice keep London smiles radiant.
TeamworkOnce you become part of our practice family, you are not alone in any aspect of your oral health. Our hygiene services include:
- Cleaning – Our trained hygienists gently remove the sticky film of bacterial plaque from teeth, hardened deposit of tartar, and surface stains. Using special instruments, they can see and reach crevices you cannot keep clean with daily brushing and flossing.
- Examination – Regular hygiene visits give the dentist an opportunity to detect soft tissue and tooth problems early, when they may be treated most effectively, with minimal discomfort, inconvenience, and expense.
- Fluoride – This fast, painless step helps children and adults avoid cavities.
- Breath control – Diagnosis of causes and professional treatment restores fresh breath.
- Periodontal maintenance – Techniques to get gum disease under control and halt its progress.
- Advice on home care – Our hygienists and dentists are happy to provide advice on nutrition, tobacco cessation, prevention of dental problems, and oral care products. Just ask for a demonstration of how to brush and floss properly.
