At Elements Dental Centre, our goal is for our patients to have both beautiful teeth and excellent gum health.

We achieve this through a cooperative effort between you, our dentists, and dental staff to preserve enamel and support structures by the preventing the on set and progression of gum disease.

The fight against dental disease begins at home with proper oral hygiene and a well-balanced diet.

Preventative actions continue in the offices of Elements Dental Centre with regular dental exam, cleanings and x-rays.

Sealants and fluoride are also great preventative treatments that help protect the teeth.

Prevention is integral to avoiding serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.

At your first dental visit a complete dental exam will be done by your dentist. At that time and at following regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will include:

  • Diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): to find decay, tumours, cysts, bone loss and tooth positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: to check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: to check your gums and bone around your teeth for any signs of periodontal (gum) disease.
  • Examination of tooth surfaces: to check for decay with special dental instruments.
  • Examination of existing restorations: to check your fillings, crowns, veneers etc.
