At the Caroline Emond Dental Clinic, we focus our practice on prevention. In addition to offering preventive dental care, our dental hygienists advise you on the daily dental care to be performed.
Each patient being different, we give special care to each of them. This is why we are constantly adapting our work techniques and adjusting our recommendations for optimal health.
In order to prevent certain diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis, our dental hygienists perform scaling and polishing teeth. These procedures, also called “ cleaning ”, remove plaque, dental calculus and stains from your teeth.
Dental calculus, or tartar, and plaque are major irritants to the gums and the bone that holds your teeth. It is therefore necessary to carry out scaling and polishing on a regular basis in order to maintain healthy gums, strong teeth and stable health.
Hygiene care at home is complementary to the care provided by the dental hygienist at the clinic.
There are many dental products on the market and, within the same family, the needs may vary.
Our dental hygienists will be able to recommend dental products tailored to your needs and preferences. We will also explain the best way to use it.
Tooth decay is an infectious disease that can destroy your teeth in the long term. Performing preventive dental care is a good way to limit the appearance of cavities.
The presence of bacteria on the teeth and the frequent consumption of foods rich in sugar are the main causes. Other factors can also contribute to the appearance of cavities, such as a lack of saliva or the presence of loose teeth.
Our team will be able to assess your risk factors and give you advice to reduce your risk of caries.
