General exam and cleaning

General health is closely linked to overall oral health. While regular brushing and flossing is indispensible, a regular visit to your Midtown Toronto dental clinic for a professional cleaning every six to nine months is essential to ensure that the teeth and gums stay healthy.

A regular visit will ensure prevention of:

  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal (gum) disease and bad breath
  • Costly and extensive dental procedures
  • Staining

During a general checkup visit a professional dental cleaning will be performed. The dentist may take digital x-rays to thoroughly assess all your teeth and gums. Any current problems and foreseeable issues will be thoroughly explained to you with any options of treatment. The dentist will strive to be clear and adapt any treatment planning, if any, to your specific situation. The overall goal is to improve and maintain your oral health and therefore your general health. New patients are always welcome at St Clair Spadina Dental.
