Dental Checkups and Teeth Cleaning in Markham | Cornell Dental Centre

Markham Dentist, Dr. M. Weerasinghe: “A Regular Dental Checkup Is the Secret to Maintaining and Beautifying Your Smile!”

An apple a day keeps the doctor away; and two checkups a year, keeps bacteria in fear. It’s important to maintain your teeth, gums and bone structure as healthy as possible. This includes, flossing, brushing two times a day and getting a checkup once or twice a year at a dentist. At Cornell Dental Centre our trained hygienists will do everything they can to help you prevent gum disease and tooth decay, the leading causes of tooth loss among adults. We are well trained at making your dental visit an anxiety and stress-free experience. In conjunction with professional cleanings and maintenance, you’ll always have the beautiful and healthy smile you deserve! We schedule your hygiene appointments on a regular basis for the early diagnosis of dental disease. Your hygienist or Dr. M. Weerasinghe, an experienced Markham Dentist, may recommend a visit every two to six months. Even if your dental insurance plan only covers the procedure twice a year, it’s money well spent. Recall frequency depends on many factors and is determined on an individual basis. Some people tend to have more build-up of calculus than others and some may be more prone to periodontal inflammation or the development of tooth decay. Patients with inadequate oral hygiene practices will require more frequent cleanings. If you have any questions or concerns while having your checkup performed; please don’t hesitate to ask your hygienist. We will be more than happy to alleviate those concerns for you!

Seven Fantastic Benefits Of Regular Dental Cleanings!

  1. To Have Good Oral Hygiene – Over time everyone will have plaque buildup on their teeth.
  2. To Prevent Halitosis (Bad Breath) – If you have halitosis, not having your teeth cleaned regularly will definitely make it worse.
  3. The Prevention of Oral Cancer – This is one of the best reasons to visit a dentist regularly, especially if you’re a tobacco user.
  4. Your Overall Health – There is evidence that gum disease, resulting from poor oral hygiene may be linked to heart attacks and strokes.
  5. To Prevent Gingivitis – Do your gums bleed, especially when you brush your teeth?  Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults.
  6. To Have A Nice Smile – Don’t you want to always look your best? Your smile is your best asset!
  7. To Keep Your Original Teeth – Regardless of all of the advances in dentistry, it’s still desirable to keep your own original teeth, if at all possible
