Cleaning your teeth at the dentist

At Lakefront Family Dental we believe that most dental problems can be prevented with comprehensive regular check ups. Part of regular check up is going to your dentist for teeth cleaning. While dental problems such as cavities may seem minor at first, they can worsen over time and cause larger health issues.

Oral health is linked to overall health, which further emphasizes the importance of good dental care, which starts with regular teeth cleaning and scaling.

Oral Health tips

  • You can keep your teeth healthy by brushing and flossing twice a day - Check our videos here to learn more.

  • You can also get fluoride treatments to help strengthen teeth and prevent decay

  • Smoking can result in tooth discoloration and plaque buildup. Smoking may cause tooth loss, gum disease, and even oral cancer

  • A balanced diet with minimal sugar is also advised, as sugar feeds the bacteria that results in dental plaque

  • If you have teeth grinding issues or play sports, mouth guards should be considered to protect your teeth.
