Dental Hygiene Exam
Your initial visit with us will include a medical and dental history, along with an oral cancer screening and a complete assessment of your periodontal health. All findings will be documented and thoroughly discussed. If a referral to a dentist is needed, you will be informed so that you may book a follow up appointment with your family dentist or one can be recommended to you.
Digital x-rays are so safe our clinicians will not need to hide around a corner. In fact, we are standing right by your side as we use Canadian approved hand held devices. X-rays are a vital part of a thorough dental hygiene exam, which allows us as clinicians to detect cavities and bone loss.
Oral Hygiene Instructions (OHI)
Scaling is the removal of hard and soft deposits on teeth above and below the gum line. We have two options available for this removal. The first option is the use of hand instruments or the second a piezo instrument , which uses vibration to remove calculus. When you come to see us your comfort is our main concern so please inform us which method of scaling you prefer.
Anytime you are aboard our mobile clinic your comfort will always be our concern. Desensitizing is available at any time whether it is prior to or during your appointment. Please let us know of any sensitivity issues you may have and we will address those issues immediately. We offer different options of desensitizers that can be applied to your teeth prior to any work and even again at the end of the appointment.
Polishing is the process of removing stains and/or soft deposits on teeth.
