Checkups and Cleanings
General checkups at our North York dental office involve thorough consultations and cleaning procedures. We work to help ensure you and your family members maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Between dental visits
The first step towards good oral hygiene is brushing and flossing, preferably at least twice per day. Develop the habit of maintaining proper oral hygiene as soon as you wake up. Brushing your teeth for approximately two minutes and flossing them will work wonders for your oral health.
Visiting the dentist
We suggest that you schedule your checkup and cleaning at Leslie Smile Solutions at least twice a year. Consult one of our dental hygienists and dentists for a comprehensive exam of your teeth and gums.
Your oral examination involves checking your teeth and gums with special dental tools and conducting occasional X-rays. These processes allow our team to spot any issues you may not have noticed—and before they get any worse.
If you or your child has a cavity, one of our dentists will remove the decayed portion of the teeth and replace it with a filling. We see to it that this procedure is completed to prevent the tiny hole in your teeth from getting bigger.
Filling materials include the following:
- Resin (an affordable option where the material matches the colour of your teeth)
- Amalgam (made from a metal alloy)
- Porcelain (works similarly to resin but is a stronger material, thus more expensive)
- Gold (the most expensive option)
Avoiding extra costs
Not all people may find a dental visit essential. However, visiting your dentist twice a year as a routine checkup can save you from additional costs in the long run. By scheduling appointments with us, you can avoid serious dental issues that can incur additional costs.
