This is everything you need to know how we make sure you and your teeth are in great health.
Too many families in Abbotsford are suffering from poor oral health because they are not taking the time to get their teeth cleaned on a regular basis.
Teeth cleaning is a critical part of having healthy gums and teeth for life.
Here are some of the things we do during these important visits:
1. Dental Exam
This is a comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist at your initial dental visit. At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will perform the following:
2. Examination of diagnostic X-rays (radiographs)
This test is essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
3. Oral cancer screening
We Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
4. Gum disease evaluation
This is where we check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
5. Examination of tooth decay
All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
6. Examination of existing restorations
We look at your current fillings, crowns, etc. and make sure everything is looking great.
Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are usually performed by Registered Dental Hygienists. Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:
Removal of calculus (tartar)
Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
Removal of plaque
Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
We remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
I have have been a patient of Montrose Dental Centre for over 10 years. On my last visit they did a fantastic job of bonding on my front tooth, making it so natural looking that you can't even tell that it has been repaired. I would recommend Montrose Dental to anybody who needs a great dentist.
Before visiting Sun Chiropractic, I was nervous going because I had a bad experience with a chiropractor a year ago. All I have to say is WOW. Kimberley Castle was amazing. She was so thorough and explained everything to me. I felt welcomed from the moment I walked it. I love the follow up exercises and was happy that Kimberley was able to really pinpoint my pain and is now helping me to get better!!!
Dr. Matt is an amazing dentist. His care for his patients and use of the best practices is exceptional. I highly recommend Montrose Dental.
From migraines and back pain to massages and acupuncture the amazing staff at Sun Chiropractic do it all! I can’t thank them enough for all the work they do! I highly recommend them.
We love everything about Sun Chiropractic. We have been monthly patients of Dr. Kim Castle, ever since I was pregnant with my now five year old. She saved me from a very painful pregnancy and helped my newborn with any tummy issues. I continue to take my two children faithfully for their monthly checkups (myself included.) Couldn't imagine life without Dr. Castle and all of the amazing staff over there!
I’ve been in two car accidents in the past month. Both times hit from behind. Before I even called MPI I called Dr. Baron and he had me scheduled for the same day. The office staff are caring and helpful. Dr. Baron is thorough in his assessment, and he never rushes through anything. I feel completely at ease in his care.
I've had numerous injuries in the past 10 yrs and the staff at Sun Chiropractic couldn't have been more courteous and caring. Dr Minuk is the epitomy of what a professional chiropractor should be. If you're looking for a friendly, caring, and compassionate chiropractic office, I HIGHLY recommend Sun Chiropractic.
Dr. Moran is beyond excellent. She is very warm, kind and understanding. I am very nervous about going to the doctor and she makes the experience excellent for me. I hope she know how much I truly appreciate her.
