The majority of dentists recommend and continually reinforce to their clients the importance of consistent domestic hygiene routines including brushing and flossing to achieve optimal oral health goals. However, Calgary dentist Dr. Kindal Robertson of Living Wellness Dental Dorchester reminds clients that regular dental cleanings and exams from a biological approach are another important part of their full-body health.
What to expect during your dental visit
By and large, dental visits are safe and comfortable. There is no need to worry about any appointments you have in the future. There are three parts to a dental appointment from a biological approach:
- The dental team will perform a hygiene treatment using professional dental tools specially designed to reach all the parts of the teeth that are typically difficult for home brushing and flossing to access. This cleaning, using natural products, will remove any build-up known as plaque or tartar and prepare the teeth for examination.
- The dental team will examine your mouth and take x-rays. This helps them identify any areas of concern, such as weak enamel, cavities, gum disease, and even oral cancer.
- Your treatment providers will provide critical information and valuable coaching, working cooperatively with you to choose between the available options that align with your value system.
Dental appointments typically last less than an hour and provide many oral health benefits, including:
Preventative care: In most cases, oral health issues, such as cavities, are silent until the problem becomes significant. Your dental team can spot issues in their early stages paving the way for more efficient, less invasive, and often less costly treatment.
Addressing current issues: If teeth are showing signs of decay or the mouth is exhibiting signs of early stages of gum disease, it is important to address these problems quickly. Delaying treatment increases the risk of spreading decay, compromising tooth structure, and developing oral health complications.
Improving your smile: Keeping your mouth in top condition can help improve your self-confidence through showing your radiant smile. Not only do regular visits help prevent staining of the teeth, but the dental team can also recommend treatments that will further improve your smile.
Education and awareness: Although most people brush and perhaps even floss regularly, dental professionals note that many clients still have room for improvement. With regular dental visits, the team will be able to identify if your at-home oral health care habits are effective and, if not, provide guidance for improvement. The dental team can also discuss your nutrition habits, provide guidance on specialized bio-friendly dental products, and make suggestions that will benefit your oral health.
Treating bad breath: Chronic bad breath is not just a case of not brushing or eating certain foods. It can be a sign that your oral hygiene habits are falling short or an indication of a medical condition. A dental professional can help identify the root of the problem and provide advice or treatment to improve the condition.
Peace of mind: We all know that dental visits are important, yet many clients put them off due to busy schedules or other life-related reasons. However, with regular dental visits that make use of specialized tools and equipment, you can rest easy, knowing your mouth is in good condition.
Personal empowerment: Healthy living has become one of the hottest trends in recent years. The world is catching up to where biological dentistry has been for decades. Our team of dental professionals possess a wealth of naturalistic information used to empower clients, helping them achieve their whole body health goals while using and consuming products that are biocompatible to their personal physiology.
