If you have a cavity, you will likely need a dental filling to restore your tooth. In this post, our Orléans dentists explain why you'd need a filling, and describe different types to consider depending on your needs.
At St. Joseph Orleans Dental Centre in Ottawa, we offer routine dental hygiene and examinations to all of our patients by our dental hygienists.Request Appointment
Why is dental hygiene important?
At St. Joseph Orleans Dental Centre, early detection and prevention are key to good oral health.
With regular checkups from a dental hygienist, we'll be able to evaluate your particular dental hygiene risks and needs and tailor your oral health care and dental cleanings just for you.
What happens at a hygiene appointment?
Our dental hygienists will begin with a comprehensive soft tissue examination and then screen for signs of gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Then, our dental hygienist will complete a detailed charting of cavities, existing restorations including fillings and crowns, and other pre-existing tooth conditions.
With schedules being busy for families, we recommend you allow about an hour for your dental hygiene appointment.
