Dental Cleaning PEI - Dentures PEI - Family Dentistry

Exceptional oral health goes beyond brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice daily. It takes more than conventional methods to maintain your dental and oral health, and it often requires periodic and frequent visits to your dentist. If you neglect your oral and dental health, then you are placing yourself at risk for a variety of ailments including, endocarditis; which occurs when bacteria enters your bloodstream from your mouth to your heart valves, and pneumonia; where bacteria on your mouth can travel into your lungs. In addition, chronic diseases like diabetes, and cardiovascular disease can adverse effects on your dental and oral health. 

At Northwest Dentistry, we can educate you on various methods to effectively maintain your oral health through the dental hygiene services that we provide. The most common of which is a general dental examination or dental cleaning. We can use tools such as an x-ray to capture potential issues hiding within the inner confines of your teeth and gums. X-rays are how we will be able to diagnose and determine the state of your oral health. Our hygienist will then proceed to use a variety of dental tools to remove plaque and tartar that has built up on your teeth and gums. Following the cleaning, we will use floss and mouthwash to complete the process. 

Other oral hygiene services that we provide here at Northwest Dentistry include fluoride treatments to strengthen your enamel, professional breath control therapy to alleviate or extinguish your bad breath, and periodontal or gum disease treatments to protect the health of your gums. At Northwest Dentistry we can assist you to maintain the health and appearance of your smile.
