Dental Exams & Hygiene

At Sheppard Yorkland Dental our dental hygienists will help you with the maintenance of your oral health through regular cleanings and examinations. 


Why is it so important to have regular cleanings?

The team at Sheppard Yorkland Dental believes that prevention is the key to your oral health.

Regular cleanings with our hygienists will help you remove any soft deposits (i.e. plaque) and hard deposits (i.e. tartar and stains) that are often missed with at home brushing alone.

Staying up to date with your cleaning can help prevent gum disease, which can lead to more serious issues.

Our hygienists may also help treat conditions such as dry-mouth, gum disease, plaque and bad breath.

Should I have X-Rays taken?

At Sheppard Yorkland Dental, we rely on x-rays to see parts of the tooth we are not able to see during a visual examination. X-rays not only allow us to see, but also to diagnose problems including cavities and damage to the jaw bone that supports your teeth. We may also detect problems below your gum line, such as broken tooth roots and impacted teeth. 

If you're overdue for a dental examination or cleaning, please get in touch with our North York practice today to book an appointment!
