Dental Examination & Cleaning
Regular check-ups at the dentist are essential for maintaining your oral health. For your dental cleaning visits in Blainville, Dr. Seica and her team will be happy to welcome you to take care of the health of your smile.
We are proud to use state-of-the-art technology to make accurate diagnoses during your routine visits, including CariVu to detect the onset of cavities, as well as VelScope technology to detect pre-cancerous cells in the soft tissues of the mouth.
Beyond cleaning, visits are
essential for your health
Most people recognize the importance of routine visits to get their teeth cleaned. However, it would be wrong to assume that this is the only reason why these visits are so important.
Routine visits are an opportunity for your dental hygienist to perform a thorough cleaning of your teeth, which includes the removal of all plaque and tartar that has accumulated in your teeth. It is important to know that tartar can only be removed during a professional cleaning, using the specialized equipment of your dental team (ultrasound machine). If left to build up, tartar can lead to cavities and gum problems. Scaling is followed by tooth polishing, which softens and removes all plaque and stains.
Routine visits are also an opportunity for your dentist to perform a thorough examination of your mouth, to detect any abnormal signs or symptoms, to make a diagnosis, and to suggest the appropriate care if needed. Without regular checkups, oral problems such as cavities and gingivitis are likely to progress and cause more harm to the health of your teeth and gums. In addition, during routine visits, we always screen for oral cancer. At our clinic, we use VelScope technology to detect all inflammatory and pre-cancerous lesions, which are invisible to the naked eye.
In short, not having routine visits means not having the preventive care that is essential to maintaining good oral health.
Why routine visits and
