When you have a smile you’re proud of, you show it off often. A healthy smile is one of the top ways to improve a person’s confidence. On the other hand, when your teeth are discolored or crooked, it has the opposite effect. The surest way to a healthy smile is to visit the dentist regularly and keep up with your oral hygiene. Bayly Dental Clinic in Pickering, Ontario general dentists are trained to maintain your teeth and gums in tiptop shape or help you get them there. There is no “twice a year” expectation like most people think. How often you need to see your general dentist depends on your oral health and regular hygiene practices. But preventative visits are an essential part of your overall wellness care. At Bayly Dental, we provide basic cleanings and exams to catch any small problems before they become expensive, painful ones. But general dentistry does so much more, too!Book an Appointment at Bayly Dental
A general dentist has extensive training in treating dental issues in people of all ages. For that reason, these dentists are frequently referred to as “family dentists.” When you find one you trust, everyone in your household, from kids to elderly members, can be treated in the same place!
Even better, Bayly Dental Clinic and most general dentists provide everything from regular preventative maintenance to restorative dental services.
There are dental specialists who have the sole job of being experts in their specific skills. This is important when you have a major problem that requires more in-depth care, such as periodontal diseases and orthodontal concerns. But these dentists don’t work on overall dental hygiene and preventative care.
Bayly Dental Clinic is proud to serve all the residents of Pickering and its surrounding areas. We offer high-quality, professional cleanings, reparative treatments, and services to help increase the strength of your gums and teeth.
There are so many services that fall under the category of “general dentistry” that it’s easier to say “Everything a specialist doesn’t do!” More specifically, though, there are certain services that fill up the majority of the day in a dental office, such as:
For the average person, a checkup and cleaning every six months or so is common. This schedule helps your dentist keep the tartar and plaque from building up in your teeth and behind your gums and clean out any bacteria hiding in your mouth.
Regular checkups also help your dentist keep tabs on anything that looks like the start of a problem. But if you have any dental issues, your dentist may have you come back more frequently until they are fixed.
Ready to take control of your dental health and schedule an appointment? Call our office and the friendly staff at Bayly Dental Clinic will answer your questions and make you an appointment.
The goal is preventative care, so the sooner you get in for an appointment, the healthier your teeth and gums will be. The typical first checkup usually lasts around an hour. This could take a little longer if the dentist catches any problems and wants to take care of them that day for you.
