Enhance your smile and health with dental hygiene habits and checkups.
Preventative Dentistry is an integral part of your oral and overall health. A checkup with your dentist is about more than maintaining a beautiful smile; identifying and managing early signs of gingivitis, cavities, and enamel wear can save you from serious and uncomfortable health problems. Some conditions such as gum disease (or periodontitis) require long-term maintenance – everyday oral main maintenance and the services provided by a dentist play a crucial role in preventing the existence and worsening of these irreversible maladies.
Your appointment with Dr. Hans includes a thorough cleaning and evaluation including the removal of any plaque or tartar deposits, polishing, fluoride, and gum care. Plan for a general dental checkup and cleaning at least once a year, but aim to meet the American Dental Association recommendation for a regular visit every six months.
Those baby teeth won’t stick around forever and when they fall out, your child’s new teeth need to be strong and healthy. Checking teeth at a young age is the only way to prevent bigger problems later. Protect permanent teeth by helping your child to brush and floss at least once a day, change their toothbrush 3-4 times a year, and set up a healthy diet. At each regular appointment, teeth will be inspected for overall health and they will be given a selection of fluoride treatment flavours for enamel strengthening.
Your trip to the dentist is also educational! Whether it be for yourself or your child, proper brushing and flossing techniques will be covered in detail. An oral hygiene routine will be with you for life- make sure your habits are done correctly.
Our warm staff and cozy environment will convert a child’s fear of the dentist into an adventure. With children of her own, Dr. Hans is familiar with the caring and playful approach needed to help children get through their anxiety or boredom. The friendship between Dr. Hans and your child will quickly turn into a permanent and positive relationship.
