When you come in for your hygiene appointment, your dental health team will also provide you with diagnostic services. These include oral examinations, x-rays and even oral cancer screenings.
Working with You
After your dentist has an overall picture of your oral health situation, he or she will review your recommended customized treatment plan.
Our patients needs are very important to us. We make sure to listen to your concerns and work with you to create an oral health plan that works for your situation.
Gum Disease and your Health
Understanding Gum Disease
Gum disease is one of the most common diseases in Canadians. It is also known as periodontal disease. Despite your best efforts with maintaining your oral health, you may still experience gum disease.
Depending on your level of gum disease, you may require gum therapy treatment.
Symptoms of Gum Disease
You may not even know you have gum disease, since sometimes, there are no symptoms at all.
However, sometimes gum disease can show itself through:
- Receding gums
- Sore gums
- Bleeding gums
- Swollen gums
- Red or purple gums
- Bad breath
One way to find out if you have gum disease is to visit your dentist. Your dentist will be able to examine your mouth and determine a plan for you.
At Bearbrook Dental Centre ,we know the importance of helping our patients prevent oral disease before it happens. Through routine check ups and routine cleanings with your dental hygienist, we can help you prevent oral health issues and maintain a healthy smile.
