General Family Dentistry Services

Regular dental visits, in combination with a nutritious, well-balanced diet low in dietary sugars, promote good oral hygiene and support your overall health.

We offer the following preventive dentistry services at our dental clinic in Scarborough:

Dental Exam

When you visit our dental clinic in Scarborough, the dentist will look inside your mouth to detect things that can affect your oral and overall health. Some of what the family dentist looks for during a dental exam are:

  • damaged, missing, or decayed teeth
  • the health and condition of your teeth (including previous dental work, signs of cavities/decay)
  • the condition of your gums

Our family dentists in Scarborough also check for early signs of oral cancers or other growths and the general condition of your face and jaw bones.

Teeth Cleaning

Most people should receive proper teeth cleaning by a Dental Hygienist every six months, with more frequent care required for those who have gum disease or other specific oral health concerns.

Teeth cleaning is a critical component of maintaining good oral health and preventing dental issues in the future. The instruments used by dental hygienists allow them to more effectively remove plaque and tartar build-up on and in between your teeth than you can do at home.

Regular teeth cleaning helps guard against cavities and gum disease and complement the work you do each day at home to clean your teeth, mouth and gums.

Cavity Repair/Fillings

Fillings are performed on teeth that have experienced tooth decay, resulting in what is commonly known as a cavity. If left untreated, your cavity can grow and cause discomfort, requiring a root canal treatment or extraction of the tooth if it becomes too damaged. During your dental exam, the dentist will also check any existing fillings you have to ensure that they are intact and do not require replacement, as fillings can wear down over time and occasionally can become damaged.

Having cavities treated with fillings promptly is essential as this prevents further damage to the tooth, which in turn means it will require less extensive work and restoration to preserve the tooth.

Dental X-Rays

Advances in dental x-ray technology have made it possible for us to use digital x-ray imaging to screen for dental and bone issues that are not visible from a visual dental exam. Digital x-rays use less radiation than traditional dental film x-ray technology and allow us to view images of your teeth and jaw immediately on our computer screens.

If you are looking to schedule an appointment at our dental clinic in Scarborough for any of the above preventive dentistry services, call (416) 752-8222 and speak to a family dentist today.
