Oral Examinations in Moose Jaw

Ideally twice every year, you'll see your dentist for regular oral exams. These allow us the opportunity to identify any oral health issues and develop a plan to treat them accordingly. 

While examining your mouth, your dentist will closely check the health of your teeth, gums, jaw and bite. Exams can also include dental X-rays, an oral cancer screening and other necessary diagnostic procedures.

Oral Cancer Screening

Any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues can be affected by oral cancer. During your exam, your dentist will assess your face, neck, tongue, throat, tissues, lips and gums for any signs of oral cancer, which may be difficult for the casual observer to identify with the naked eye.

Oral Health Care at Home

Remember to brush twice a day for two minutes each time and floss at least once a day so your smile stays healthy between dental appointments. 

Hygiene Cleaning in Moose Jaw

Before or after examining your teeth, your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to prevent and treat disease. 

To start, they will use a scaler to remove any tartar and plaque buildup. Next, a polisher and coarse toothpaste will be used to remove any remaining stains or plaque. This will be followed by a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums. 

Fluoride Treatment

If you or your child has a high risk of tooth decay, your dentist may also recommend a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
