Dental Check Ups & Routine Dental Check Ups by Campbellford Dentist

Dental Check Up & Examination

Many Canadians visit their dentist at least once a year for routine check ups. During your initial consultation, the dentist will discuss your dental and medical history with you including recent changes in your health and medication. It is very important that your dentist is kept up to date with your health information in order to avoid medical complications and drug reactions during treatment. Once the information is discussed, treatment begins by giving the teeth and gums a thorough cleaning. The cleaning begins by clearing plaque and tartar that has accumulated on the teeth. The cleaning is followed by polishing, removing any excess debris and applying a smooth and shiny surface to your teeth.

Once the cleaning is completed, the dentist will examine all teeth and gums and rule out any swellings, mouth sores or redness; including gum disease. The examining dentist may take a few intra-oral x-rays to ensure tooth decay is not present inside the tooth surface or between the teeth. Once the detailed examinations are complete, the dentist will discuss any potential issues that were found and provide recommendations and treatment options.

Canada Canadian Dental Insurance Plan (CDCP)

We are accepting the Government of Canada Canadian Dental Insurance Plan (CDCP). The CDCP is a new Canadian Dental Care Plan where individuals that do not have access to an employer provided or private dental insurance plan can apply for. As an important part of dental care and overall health, the Government of Canada recognizes the expenses that can be associated with dental treatment and is committed to helping Canadians receive the dental treatments that are required while also making it more affordable.

The CDCP is offered to help low income families who do not have dental insurance by covering some costs associated with dental services for families with net income that is under $90,000.
