Oral Hygiene Program
Dr. Howard Lim – your Toronto Dentist – encourages regular dental oral hygiene
Oral Hygiene is Essential
At Bathurst Dundas Dental Centre, our wish for you, your children and family is to achieve the goal of never needing dental work in the future. We help you to achieve this goal with regular hygiene visits which will minimize gum disease and future dental work for a lifetime. We encourage you to schedule your professional dental cleaning and check-up session every 3 to 6 months. Along with daily home hygiene practices, professional cleaning will ensure your teeth and mouth are always in the best shape and health possible.
Our hygienist can also perform an oral cancer screening. Oral cancer is a serious and deadly disease that affects millions of people. In fact, the Oral Cancer Foundation estimates that someone in the United States dies every hour of every day from oral cancer. Over 300,000 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed every year, worldwide. This serious dental disease, which pertains to the mouth, lips or throat, is often highly curable if diagnosed and treated in the early stages.
Regular Professional Dental Cleanings
Regular professional cleanings are vital to maintaining excellent oral health. More importantly, research has shown that oral health is an important part of overall health. Our teeth naturally develop plaque, a sticky and colorless film of bacteria that tends to build up on our teeth and under our gum line. If not removed, the plaque eventually hardens into tartar, a yellow or brown deposit, which leads to gum disease and other dental problems. Our professional dental hygienists are well experienced and highly skilled to clean your teeth, educate, and assist you in developing a home-care routine that is tailored to your needs.
With our high focus on preventive care, our Toronto dental office will help you maintain the highest standards of oral health for life!
