Our team provides comprehensive dental care in one convenient setting.
In order to help you maintain a healthy smile it is important to get regular dental cleanings at our Ottawa dental clinic. The frequency of these appointments is tailored to your particular needs. During this time, our registered dental hygienists will clean your teeth, evaluate your gums, and provide personalized recommendations for improving your oral health.
Dental Exams and Checkups
Our Ottawa family dentist recommends regular dental exams to monitor your oral health. Regular visits allow us to spot any areas that need attention. When dental problems are found and treated early, outcomes improve making treatments simpler, faster and less expensive.
Dental x-rays are important for diagnosis of areas that are impossible to see with a visual inspection such as cavities between teeth and monitoring the health of your bone.
If you have any dental issues between your scheduled hygiene appointments, call Parkdale Dental for a focused exam. We are available for emergency appointments during our scheduled office hours. If you begin to experience pain, we can act fast to get you proper relief.
Children’s First Exam
Your child’s first visit to the dentist should be 6 months after their first tooth appears or by age 1, whichever happens first. An examination is performed to determine if growth and development of their teeth and jaws are on track. It is also an important opportunity to discuss habits and diet with the parents. Seeing children at this age helps us to prevent cavities by creating the right habits early.
Oral Cancer Screenings
During every appointment we will perform an oral cancer screening by examining the hard and soft tissues of your mouth and neck.
Amalgam (Silver) and Composite (White) Fillings
If an area of decay is diagnosed during your dental exam we can often repair it by placing a filling on the affected tooth. Both amalgam and composite fillings are available at Parkdale Dental. Amalgam fillings tend to be longer lasting while composite fillings are more aesthetically pleasing. The choice of material is always yours.
