At Dentistry in Ajax, our dental hygienists are here for check-ups and teeth cleaning to help you maintain your oral health both inside and outside of our dental office.
We recommend that you visit our dental hygienists once every six months to ensure regular cleanings are kept within your oral health plan.
Your dental hygiene appointments are essential for the removal of plaque, tooth stains and tartar.
Our hygienist will also teach you important hygiene techniques like flossing and brushing your teeth.
Your dentist may also take a digital x-ray, and check your teeth for any signs of decay or gum disease.
Oral cancer screenings can be significant in the detection of oral cancer. Early detection is important for treatment, so ask your dentist about oral cancer screening at your next appointment.
Your dental hygienist may perform an oral cancer screening at your hygiene appointment. Your dental hygienist will do an external and internal examination for any abnormalities. At Dentistry in Ajax, we also use ViziLite Plus to help detect oral cancer.
ViziLite Plus uses a blue light in combination with specialized filters to visually enhance the differences between normal and abnormal tissue in your mouth.
