Preventive Dental Care Treatment Ajax

Protection for Your Teeth and Your Health

Preventive dental treatment targets common threats to your teeth and gums. For example, dental plaque and tartar build-up allow harmful bacteria to thrive and potentially cause gum disease.

Preventive Dental Treatment

Reduce your risk of dental disease

Teeth cleanings combined with a dental examination by your Ajax dentist, Dr. Shields, are essential to help eliminate oral health issues. Dr. Shields and your dental hygienist will assess the health of your teeth and gums during your appointment.

Support for your at-home dental care

Dental plaque and tartar are removed from your teeth and from under you gum line. This professional procedure cleans your teeth beyond what daily brushing and flossing can accomplish.

Recommended treatment schedule

Oral bacteria can be extremely damaging to your teeth and gums. Tooth loss can occur eventually if bacteria is not removed.

Dr. Shields will discuss the preventive treatment interval that is right for your age and your dental, periodontal, and overall health. At a minimum, we recommend that you schedule your preventive dental treatment in our Ajax dental office every six months for all ages.

Contact your dentist in Ajax to schedule your next dental examination and teeth cleaning.
