Frankton Dental

Cleanings & Exams

Many of our patients are conscientious about their health and appearance. When patients come to us and want to know the best way to prevent dental conditions, we discuss at-home oral care, dental exams, and professional hygienist cleanings.

Good preventive care helps reduce your risk for certain illnesses and can help you achieve and maintain the level of excellent oral health that helps you look and feel your best.

Providing Your Medical History

Your regular dental and hygienist visits are a great opportunity to tell us about any issues or discomfort you’ve been experiencing in your mouth. You’ll also want to give a detailed description of your medical history and come prepared with a list of any medications you take.

Knowing your medical history allows your dentist to gain a better understanding of your overall health. After all, there is a strong systemic link between the health of your mouth and your overall health. Under the "FORMS" tab there is a printable version of our medical history form.

Dental Examinations

During your visit, your dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and bite. We will also check for signs of tooth decay and risk factors associated with illnesses like bone loss and periodontal disease. This way, potential problems can be identified in their early stages while they are more easily treatable.

Diagnostic x-rays are an important part of your regular dental visits, as they allow your dentist to see what is not visible through visual inspection alone.

Professional Teeth Cleaning

During your visit, our hygienist will gently and thoroughly clean your teeth. Part of your dental cleaning includes a polish, which can remove surface stains and improve the colour of your teeth. Your dental team will meticulously remove hard-to-reach tartar. 

We also enjoy sharing information with our patients about how to best care for your teeth at home and your hygienist can show you proper procedures for brushing and flossing if you need a refresher.

We will design your professional dental cleaning schedule according to your needs. For some patients, twice-yearly visits will do, while other patients may require more frequent dental cleanings to stay healthy.
