Preventive Care

A healthy mouth leads to a healthy body

Preventive Care

At the Fort Frances Dental Centre and Emo Dental Clinic, we recognize the importance of good oral hygiene. Routine check-ups and cleanings are essential in keeping a healthy mouth. We have over seven registered dental hygienists on staff who are eager to help you reach your oral health goals.

Preventive dental treatment varies from patient to patient. Together, you and your hygienist will determine a treatment plan specific to your needs and desires. Typically, your preventive treatment will involve a cleaning, which is the removal of plaque and calculus buildup from your teeth. Plaque and calculus contain bacteria which can cause gum disease and tooth decay.



Preventive dental hygiene treatment might also include:

  • Radiographs
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Polishes
  • Oral health education
  • Nutrition counselling
  • Placement of sealants
  • Application of desensitizer
  • Administration of Arestin* (locally administered
    antibiotic for treatment of periodontal disease)


Ongoing Care

After your initial dental hygiene treatment is complete, you and your hygienist will decide how often you should return for future cleanings. This decision is made based on your individual oral health needs.

Call us to book your dental hygiene appointment today. We offer customized preventive dental care to patients of all ages.
