Your North Vancouver dentist will thoroughly examine your whole mouth for cavities, failing fillings or crowns, jaw disorders, and any bite abnormalities. We will also examine your gingival and periodontal health and screen for oral pathologies such as cancer, gum disease, and bone/tooth health. Scheduling regular North Vancouver dental care will help your dentist identify any problems before they become any worse and make sure you are maintaining excellent oral hygiene.

Your Responsibility to Preventative Dentistry

While regular teeth cleaning in North Vancouver is a necessary step to good oral hygiene, it doesn’t stop there. You have a responsibility at home as well. The most crucial part of preventative dentistry is daily tooth brushing with American Dental Association approved toothpaste. Additionally, daily flossing will help clean the spaces between your teeth ultimately preventing plaque buildup and cavities. By doing these two things at home in addition to scheduling regular appointments with your North Vancouver dentist at Third Street Dental, you will be well on your way to a bright, healthy smile!
