Oral Examinations in Ottawa

Regular oral exams, ideally twice a year, allow your dentist to identify any oral health issues as early as possible and create a treatment or maintenance plan that is suited to your unique needs.

During your exam, your dentist will examine the condition of your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite.

Dental X-rays, oral cancer screening, and other diagnostic procedures may also be included in exams.

Oral Cancer Screening in Ottawa

Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth or the tissues surrounding it. During your exam, your dentist will look for signs of oral cancer that are difficult to detect with the naked eye on your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums.

Oral Health Care at Home

Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, and floss at least once a day, to keep your smile healthy in between dental appointments.

Hygiene Cleaning in Ottawa

Your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums before or after your exam to prevent and treat any disease.

To begin, a scaler will be used to remove any tartar and plaque buildup. They will then polish your teeth and gums with a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any remaining stains or plaque, followed by flossing your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment in Ottawa

If you or your child is at high risk of tooth decay, your dentist may also advise a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can aid in the rebuilding of minerals in your tooth enamel, thereby helping to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
