The prevention of dental problems is always the more affordable alternative to treating them when it’s too late and costly. That’s why we place so much emphasis on diagnostic and preventive treatment. Your Dentist at Gateway Dental Care performs each routine dental appointment to assess the possibility of dental disease using diagnostic methods including digital x-rays and cleaning your teeth and gums.
Many people can have gum disease without having any symptoms. Regular periodontal exams and dental cleanings are critical in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. As part of our maintenance schedule your gingival tissues are inspected for colour and firmness, your teeth evaluated for looseness and bone inspected and checked. Digital x-rays and gentle probing may also be used to evaluate changes in the bone that supports your teeth. Should you have periodontal disease, todays advanced treatment and procedures can usually save your teeth and your smile.
