Dental cleaning and checkups
Visiting your dentist regularly reduces the chance that you’ll need more extensive dental work in the future. Consistent visits are one of the best things you can do to maintain and improve your dental health.

Regular visits are the
secret to a great smile
Our dentists and dental assistants are gentle and thorough when they perform the regular maintenance you need to keep your smile strong and lifelong.
There are lots of reasons why you should book a checkup and cleaning at least once a year*:
- We can spot cavities while they’re still small.
- We can also look for early warning signs of oral cancers.
- Cleaning removes the plaque buildup that is a major contributor to gum disease.
- Cleaning makes your smile brighter and whiter by removing stains.
- Good oral health contributes to your overall body health.
- We can coach you on any dental care habits that you should improve.
*Your dentist will let you know how often you should get a checkup, depending on your dental health. Most people should get a checkup every six months, but people with poor dental health may need to visit us every three or four months. If your oral health is great, you may be able to go as long as a year between checkups.
Early detection of cavities
helps in the long run
We always encourage people to practice great dental habits, but not everyone can have perfect oral health all the time. Regular checkups help us catch cavities at the earliest possible stage, before they start to hurt, and often before you can even see them yourself (there are many hard-to-see spots in your mouth, especially between your teeth).
When you treat them earlier, cavities are much easier and less expensive to fill, and you’re much less likely to have problems down the road.
Spotting the early warning
signs of oral cancers
Another important benefit to regular checkups is the early detection of oral cancers, most of which can be successfully treated when caught in their initial stages. Many oral cancers can be visually identified by a dental professional, and appear as spots, discolourations, or lumps.
Some of the risk factors for oral cancers are unhealthy diet, heavy alcohol use, age, extreme sun exposure, and of course smoking. But for some people, it’s still possible to get oral cancers even if they don’t have risk factors, so we do encourage anyone with a family history of cancer to schedule a screening.
Preventing gum disease
Acidic foods and drinks can stain your teeth. The acidity wears away the enamel and opens the door to stains. Foods and drinks that can stain your teeth include:
- Red wine
- Fruit juices
Regular cleaning helps by removing stains. We can deep clean to a level that just isn’t possible at home.
We can help you and your family maintain good oral health with regular, stress-free visits. From setting your appointment to the dental chair, our team will make you feel welcome and relaxed.
