At every visit with your Port Coquitlam dentist, you will receive a comprehensive oral examination, including cavity detection, oral cancer screenings, and other services designed to help you maintain your healthy smile. As a patient, we want you to be aware of the preventative dentistry treatments you are receiving when you come to visit your Port Coquitlam dentist, Dr. Gurinder Gerry Chahal.
You are constantly benefiting from an attentive, experienced team of dental professionals. A less-invasive, preventative treatment in combination with your general checkups is always better than a more complex procedure down the road. At your Port Coquitlam dental clinic, Oxford Family Dental, we always have your best interests in mind as we serve you.
PREVENTION AT HOME
General and preventative dentistry doesn’t stop in your Port Coquitlam dentist’s chair, so it’s important that you continue proper oral care at home.
Regular, thorough brushing is needed for proper oral health. Before getting started though, it’s important you have the proper tools: a toothbrush and toothpaste. Fluoride provides multiple health benefits. It has consistently proven to benefit oral health and is commonly found in toothpastes and mouthwashes. Always be sure to use toothpaste with fluoride to ensure a greater protection from tooth decay.
Flossing is just as important as brushing your teeth because it promotes overall gum health and the prevention of tartar. Try getting into the habit of flossing once a day—it can make a huge difference!
Consult with your Port Coquitlam dental practice, Oxford Family Dental, if you have any questions about your or your family’s oral health.
