Preventive care: Dental cleaning and exams

A beautiful smile, white teeth and healthy gums: who wouldn’t want that?

Billions of bacteria grow in your mouth. Did you know that each of your 32 teeth offers them an easy access to your body? Proper treatment of your teeth and gums will naturally prevent the spread of bacteria into your body.

“Yes it’s true; I sometimes have the occasional sensitive tooth. Sometimes I feel an irritation on my gums. If I use a toothpick to scratch it, I notice some bleeding—but that stops very quickly. Nothing serious though!”

The failure to see anything does not mean that all is well. If you want to be safe, you should regularly visit your dentist for a dental exam and cleaning. Do not wait for a problem to arise!

A complete dental exam and cleaning done by your dentist and dental hygienist are the best means to ensuring optimal dental health. Remember that your teeth and gums are as important as the rest of your body. The latest medical research shows that dental problems contribute to many important health issues including: myocardial infarction, stroke, premature birth and diabetes.

At PRISMA Dentistes, we use high-precision and high-tech instruments, ensuring pain-free cleaning. You will notice and feel the results immediately! In addition, during the exam, any problems will be detected and treated. That is why a dental exam and regular cleaning is so important.

With the original PIEZON method, there is no need to be a hero in the dentist’s chair. What is the secret? The use of ultrasound and the implementation of the piezoceramic principle. It is comfortable, painless, quick and complete. With about 30,000 pulses per second, tartar and plaque are removed—even between the teeth and under the gum line.

Professional tooth cleaning leaves nothing behind except a sense of well-being.

Today, a dental exam can only be a positive experience!

Take the dental test yourself:

  • Are your gums are more pinkish (as they should normally be) or dark red?
  • When passing your tongue on your teeth do you feel something wrong?
  • Do you bleed when you brush your teeth?
  • Do you have bad breath?
  • Do you feel that your tooth is getting longer?
  • Has a family member ever prematurely lost teeth?

If you answered yes to any of the questions, be reassured. Modern, preventive care can preserve the health of your teeth and gums. Luckily, your dentist and dental hygienist know how to prevent and treat these problems. Gain peace of mind!
