Regular Visits With Your Toronto Dentist
We know that many people aren’t exactly excited about visiting their dentist. Your dentist in Toronto doesn’t take that personally, but we’re here to explain why it’s so important to visit us regularly. Sure, we clean your teeth and help you maintain a healthy, sparkling smile, but there’s so much more that regular dental visits can do to improve your health.
Here are some examples:
1. Early Cancer Detection
Regular dental visits are the best way to catch mouth cancers early and make them easier to treat. Your dentist examines your mouth, head and neck looking for lumps or red or white patches that could be signs of cancer.
2. Preventative Care
The dental hygienists you visit are highly trained specialists in preventative oral healthcare and treatment of gum disease. They can answer any questions about your oral hygiene routine, and professionally clean your teeth through scaling and polishing that remove plaque and tarter and reduce the likelihood of developing tooth decay and gum disease down the road.
3. Shiny Whites
There are a lot of products out there that promise to whiten your teeth. Dr. Lily Lo and the team at Lawrence Avenue Dental in Toronto are familiar with them all, and they’re the perfect people to go to for advice on which whitening solution you should be using, if any at all. They are the experts because they know more than just the ins and outs of oral care – they know your teeth.
4. Smell Better
Bad breath can be embarrassing and hard to manage for many. Sometimes, bad breath is caused by poor dental hygiene, or simply forgetting to brush that morning, but sometimes it is a sign of tonsil stones or gum disease. Gum disease can cause gums to pull away from your teeth, leaving room for pockets of space where bacteria can accumulate. Your dentist can suggest ways to reduce these underlying problems, as well as suggest products and actions you can take to improve your breath and make you more comfortable in social settings.
