Regular dental visits, cleanings, sealants, x-rays, fluoride, diet, protecting teeth from injury, and home oral hygiene are all integral in preventing more costly dental problems. Waiting to see a dentist until something hurts is not recommended. At Dr. William S Motruk Dentistry, we like to catch problems before they progress to the point of pain and infection.
The oral hygiene you practice at home—brushing at least two times a day and flossing every day—is great for keeping your smile healthy and beautiful between visits to your dentist, but it doesn’t take the place of the more in depth cleaning we’re able to perform at our dental office in Kingston, Ontario. We perform more comprehensive cleaning, as well as fluoride treatments, take actions to prevent or reverse gum disease, and even tell you about a variety of dental options to keep your breath feeling and smelling fresh!
If you have good oral hygiene habits and a healthy mouth, your dentist and dental hygienist will probably suggest professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year. Many dental insurance policies will cover two cleanings per year, but few people take full advantage of their benefits. The twice-a-year recommendation is what we highly recommend at our dental office.
If you’re looking for a new dental practice to provide cleanings and oral examinations, or you’ve simply lapsed in your regular dental checkups in our office, please contact us today. We’ll be delighted to schedule an appointment for you and answer any questions you may have about the hygiene services we offer.
