Good oral hygiene is important, not only for looks, but for general health as well. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, bone loss, heart disease, strokes and more.
Regular dental cleanings can prevent bad breath, gum diseases and oral cancer. During a dental cleaning we can detect potential tooth problems, as well as create a treatment plan to restore your smile to a functional, healthy and beautiful state.
At Don Mills-Eglinton Dental Centre, we recommend regular dental check-ups every 6-12 months to maintain a healthy smile. For some, healthy gums can be maintained by a polishing of teeth by one of our certified dental hygienists; for others, long term periodontal health can only be maintained by specialized deep cleanings at 3-4 month intervals.
