Rejuvenate Your Smile

Rejuvenate Your Smile At Lakeridge Dental Centre 
As spring approaches, it’s time to rejuvenate our lives after the winter season. At Lakeridge Dental Centre, we’re focused on rejuvenating your smile and oral health. With warmer weather on the horizon, we all want to look our best when we socialize.
We offer a perfect spring smile makeover that begins with a thorough dental examination, covering the health of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues. Our dentists at Lakeridge Dental Centre are trained to detect issues that you may not see on your own. Early discovery and diagnosis of any problem, whether it’s tooth decay or oral cancer, is crucial for successful treatment.
During the dental exam, your dentist checks for damaged, broken, or chipped teeth, missing teeth, early signs of cavities, gum diseases such as periodontal disease, inflammation, or other forms of gum disease that can lead to tooth and bone loss. 
Your dentist also checks previous dental work such as fillings and crowns, early signs of mouth and throat cancer, suspicious growths or cysts, the position of your teeth, and signs you may be clenching or grinding your teeth. The dentist also looks for signs of bleeding or inflammation of the tongue, floor or roof of your mouth, the overall health and function of your temporomandibular joint, and the general condition of the bones in your face, jaw, and around your mouth.
The dental exam can catch problems early before you see or feel them, making them much easier and less expensive to treat. The exam also includes a complete medical history, so the dentist knows about any health conditions that may affect the success of dental treatments or procedures or that may be associated with oral health problems. It may also include an examination of your neck area, with the dentist feeling the glands and lymph nodes for possible signs of inflammation that could indicate general health problems and dental x-rays, if necessary.
It’s essential to communicate with your dentist so they can manage your treatment and prevention program correctly. Be sure to mention any new medical conditions, new medications, pregnancy, allergies, changes you’ve noticed in your teeth or gums, smoking or vaping, issues with drugs or alcohol, grinding or clenching, if you are scared or nervous about seeing your dentist, and if you are under a lot of stress.
Once your comprehensive dental examination is complete, your dentist at Lakeridge Dental Centre can make recommendations such as crowns, veneers, teeth whitening, implants, and more to help you achieve that picture-perfect smile.
