Learn About Proper Dental Hygiene Education & Preventative Care
Oral Health Care From Your Vancouver Dentists
Proper dental hygiene is crucial for your oral health. This is something you can take care of at home on a daily basis with the regular support of your dentist approximately every six months. Our staff at West Broadway Dentist is committed to helping you achieve the healthiest smile possible. When you come into our office, you will always receive a warm welcome and attentive personalized care. This includes helpful, individualized recommendations on the best way to promote and protect your dental health both in our office and when you’re at home.
At West Broadway Dentist, your oral health and overall happiness is what’s most important to us, which is why we offer iTero scans and X-rays every two years, combined with a recommended schedule of preventive checkups every six months.
The iTero intraoral scanner is a powerful piece of dental technology that we’re proud to offer in our office. This device quickly delivers a detailed 3D visualization of your mouth. Available on a multitouch screen, this imagery is easy to manipulate and share, so we can give our patients a clear picture of their dental health that’s easy to understand.
We combine our iTero scans with dental X-rays to ensure we’re getting a complete look at your dental health both inside and out. These tools are available right in our office, so we’re always equipped to get additional scans or X-rays as needed to help us plan more complex procedures or follow up on recent treatments.
Our conservative approach to dental health utilizes observation rather than invasive procedures whenever possible. By keeping up with your regular visits, you can get the attentive care and recommendations you need to stay on top of any potential problems. Problems often develop so slowly that you won’t notice anything is wrong until the issue has progressed significantly. However, we can catch issued like receding gums, moving teeth, and the formation of small cavities very early when you come in for routine visits.
Proper Dental Hygiene
In between your checkups, it’s important to keep up with regular dental hygiene. This includes brushing twice a day and flossing daily. At your checkup, we can advise you on any areas of the mouth that you might be missing, and we will offer useful tips that will help you take better care of your smile. From recommending the best toothbrushes and mouthwash products to helping you perfect your flossing technique, we strive to be your ultimate resource for anything you might need to know about proper dental care.
If you haven’t had a dental checkup in the last six months, we highly recommend making an appointment now. We are accepting new patients and would love to meet you in our office! At your first appointment with West Broadway Dentist, you should plan to spend about two hours in the office. If you have files or X-rays from a previous dentist, let us know so we can transfer that information to our office before your appointment.
With regular dental care, you can keep your teeth and gums strong, healthy, and comfortable. Don’t wait until you’re dealing with a painful issue to make the call. Reach out and schedule your appointment with our warm, friendly staff today.
