Preventative Care in Barrie, ON
Preventative care is the cornerstone of our practice at Park Place Dental. With consistent cleaning and checkup appointments every six months, we hope to help our patients avoid many dental issues such as periodontal (gum) disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay. With advanced technology, we make these visits as pleasant and comfortable for our patients as possible.
The Importance of Regular Dental Visits
There are a few important things that take place during your routine dental visit. First, our hygienist will clean your teeth, which removes the plaque buildup that causes issues like gum disease and cavities. We’ll also spend time educating you about proper brushing and flossing techniques that will help you make the most of your routine at home.
Next, Dr. Joo or Dr. Moore will perform a thorough examination to detect any issues going on in their earliest stages. This gives you the opportunity to treat any dental concerns with less invasive treatment procedures.
Avoiding Dental Care is Costly
Many people believe that you should only visit your dentist when your tooth hurts. This is very untrue when it comes to dentistry. Unlike your medical doctor, who sees you when you’re sick or injured, if you wait to see your dentist until there’s pain in your mouth or tooth, the damage has likely already been done.
Most dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease progress slowly and without any pain or symptoms in the beginning. Preventative care offers you the opportunity to be proactive about your oral health and stay on top of any issues that could be happening in your mouth so you can treat them with the least expensive treatment procedures available.
Additional Preventative Care
Patients will find advanced preventative services at Park Place Dental that they may not find at other practices. Treatment for bruxism, or clenching and grinding, headaches and other challenges are available at our practice. We can also help with recommending, or even fabricating the right protective wear for patients who participate in sports.
With state-of-the-art technology and treatments on hand, we hope to take care of all of your needs here at our practice without referrals elsewhere for aspects of your care.
