Preventive Care

Preventive dental care is important throughout your life, no matter how old you are. By practising good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular visits at our dental office, you can help keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come.

At Dr. Sturm and Associates, preventive dentistry is our principal objective. We want to make sure you get the most out of your office visits, and that you maintain your teeth for a lifetime. We'll work with you to provide complete dental care, and show you how to maintain your smile at home with the right dental products.

Checkups and cleanings

Regular dental checkups are a critical part of maintaining your oral health. During your regular checkup, your hygienist will:

  • Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
  • Look for cavities or other signs of tooth decay
  • Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease such as gum recession, inflammation, swelling in the gums or other soft tissues, broken or fractured teeth or dental work, cavities or tooth decay.
  • Do a preliminary screening for oral cancer.
  • Provide a thorough cleaning.

Our hygienists are your personal trainers for oral health. They will recommend cleaning appointments every three, four or six months, depending on your needs. They may also create a personalized periodontal schedule tailored to your specific situation. Every six months, your visit will involve an oral exam. These checkups are also a great time for you to find out about any new treatments that may benefit the health of your teeth or the appearance of your smile.

Protect your mouth

If you play sports, ask us about special mouth guards designed to protect your teeth from injury during hockey, football and basketball.

Committed to your oral health

We are committed to helping you maintain a healthy mouth, and will design a periodontal hygiene program that fits your needs. If it's been six months since your last checkup, it's time to schedule your next appointment. Call us today!
