Oral cancer and Periodontal Screening
At your first visit, you will be given a comprehensive medical and dental history to fill out. This will ensure that all the necessary and relevant medical and dental information is obtained prior to starting treatment. This will allow us to identify anymedical conditions or other important information that might impact your dental care. We would like to provide you with a safe dental hygiene treatment. A thorough intra and extra oral examination will be done followed by a periodontal screening which will be recorded and updated yearly or as needed.
We will perform a clinical oral cancer screening at each dental visit. In the case of an abnormal finding, a referral to an Oral Surgeon will be provided.
- Scaling and Root Planning (Periodontal Therapy)
Periodontal Therapy involves using hand instruments to remove dental plaque, bio film and calculus from the teeth and underneath the gum line. An ultrasonic scaling device can also be used to help remove deposits and aide in flushing the bacteria from under the gum line.
- Gum Irrigation
Tooth polishing removes stain, plaque and helps to smooth the tooth surface making it difficult for the plaque to accumulate on the tooth surface.
- Fluoride Application
There are numerous ways to dispense fluoride: as a mouth rinse or trays with a fluoride foam, (The mouth rinse is a great way to receive your fluoride if you tend to gag). For patients who may be at a higher risk of developing dental caries, a fluoride varnish can be applied using a micro brush directly onto the tooth surface.
Oral Hygiene Instruction and Personal Treatment Planning
Because every mouth is different, a personalized oral hygiene instruction will be given at each dental hygiene appointment to help achieve the best results. A treatment plan addressing the patient’s goals and a recommended sequence of visits will be specially designed to meet each and every ones needs.

Tooth Desensitizing Treatment
Needle Free Anesthetic
For patients that are experiencing gum sensitivity during cleaning, (scaling or root planning) we can apply an anesthetic gel around the selected tooth. The anesthetic solution is delivered below the gum line using an applicator [ NOT a needle] to make the treatment more comfortable.
A thin coating painted on the chewing surfaces (pits and grooves) of the molars and premolars is applied to prevent dental caries.

They are much more effective than the typical store bought sports guards as they provide a better source of suction to the teeth and gums which overall provides the athlete with more protection and comfort.
