At Bathurst College Dentistry ® our highly specialized team of dentist and hygienists
will make sure that your smile stays healthy and strong, with regular visits our office
for dental cleanings and exams. As a preventative measure we scale your teeth and
take X-rays of your mouth to promote oral health.
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic yet important
preventive treatments we provide at our office.
Every time you visit our dental office for your regular checkup,
we will provide you with a professional teeth cleaning and
dental exam to help your smile stay bright and healthy.
Professional Dental Cleaning
Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are usually performed by registered
dental hygienists at Bathurst College Dentistry. ®
At BCD, your cleaning appointment
will include a dental exam and the following:
▸ Calculus (tartar) removal
Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now rigidly attached to the tooth surface.
Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
▸ Plaque removal
Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth.
It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva.
The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums.
This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease.
▸ Teeth polishing
The removal of stains and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
Professional Dental Exam
Comprehensive dental exams are routinely performed
by our dentists at Bathurst College Dentistry. ®
At BCD, your regular check-up exams,
by our dentists and hygienists will include the following:
▸ Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs)
Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.
X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
▸ Oral cancer screenings
We check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
▸ Gum disease evaluation
Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
▸ Examination of tooth decay
All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
▸ Examination of existing restorations
Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
We recommended that you visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam.
We may suggest more frequent visits if necessary, and we also encourage you to contact us
if you suffer from a dental emergency, pain, or injury.
