What to Expect If You Haven’t Been To The Dentist In A While

Your smile can be a great indicator of your overall health which is why visiting your dentist twice a year is so important. At Erinwood Dental, we want you to be in the know with what to expect from your first check up, if it’s been a while since we last saw you. Between a hectic schedule, and the demands of lockdown and restrictions, we applaud you for making the choice of prioritizing your oral health! Let’s take a look at what to expect, so your healthy and shining smile can be back in no time.

Your Smile Will Thank You! 

Between brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily, we know you always try your best to maintain your oral hygiene at home! Still, it’s important you see a professional for a proper cleaning at least twice a year to remove debris from the hard to reach spots and gumline. Over time, even the cleanest of mouths can build up plaque, which will eventually harden and turn to tartar. This tough substance is a leading cause in periodontal disease amongst Canadians, and can only be removed by a professional. Whether you see us regularly, or have missed your last few check-ups, it’s never too late to start caring for your smile! 


The Extra Mile

Your dentist may suggest taking x-rays and scans of your mouth to make sure no area is missed! New dental technology can locate cavities and any developing problems with ease to make your check-up much more thorough! Panoramic x-rays can also help uncover the signs of developing wisdom teeth, and the health of your teeth’s roots! It’s important to talk to us about your oral health habits! From here, we can create a customized treatment plan just for you.
