Mississauga dentist strives to be a partner in good oral health

12/15/16

The Canadian Dental Association reports there are more than 2,500 dentists practicing in metro Toronto alone. General practitioners and specialists alike must attain advanced training to be a dentist in Mississauga, graduating from an accredited dental program and successfully completing the certification process for licensure. 

 

Dentistry on 10 takes great pride in the advanced knowledge and compassion of their dental team. They work to build trusted relationships with patients and their family members. Dr. Kotecha and her team understand accidents are unexpected, but wherever possible they take a proactive rather than a reactive approach. The best dentistry is no dental treatment; it is a partnership between you and your dentist. 

 

Six month exams and cleanings are “standard,” but it’s important to follow Dr. Kotecha’s recommendations. She may schedule follow-up appointments more frequently, depending on your oral health needs. Those needs evolve, and can depend on factors such as:

  • How often and how well you brush and floss
  • Tobacco use and other habits that are harmful to your health
  • Your medical history and overall health status

Dentists see the links between conditions such as advanced gum disease and poorly-controlled diabetes in their patients. Since Dentistry on 10 also sees generations of families as patients, they are aware of genetic predispositions these family members may have. Ongoing preventive visits will be customised with these considerations in mind, knowing that gum disease and aggressive periodontitis has a familial component. 

 

Nutrition also plays a big role in how often you may need to visit Dentistry on 10’s Mississauga office. Your teeth are dramatically affected by what you eat and drink. A serious sweet tooth or starch-heavy diet is a recipe for tooth decay and gum disease, as damaging plaque-producing bacteria thrive on sugars and starches.

ViziLite Plus for Oral Cancer Screening

10/02/13
Oral cancer is a serious condition that needs to be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible for the best recovery. In many cases, a dentist can perform oral cancer screenings for patients who are concerned about lesions or sores within the mouth that may be an indication of a more serious problem.

We at the Dentistry on 10 dental practice are happy to announce that we will be offering the new ViziLite Plus treatment to our patients. This is a straightforward technology which helps us when it comes to detecting oral irregularities such as oral cancer and premalignant lesions early.

When considering serious conditions such as these, it is important to detect these conditions as soon as possible as it can save lives. In fact, when oral cancer is diagnosed early, the rate of success for the treatment is around 90%. The Vizilite Plus examination will considerably improve our ability when it comes to classifying, assessing, and observing irregular areas which are hard to see with standard lighting.

Clinical studies have concluded that carrying out the ViziLite Plus examination after carrying out the conventional oral cancer check-up will greatly increase our ability to locate and assess areas that look suspicious during their early stages. Detecting tissue that is pre-cancerous early on can lessen or completely get rid of the possibly damaging outcomes of oral cancer and even save a person’s life.

ViziLite Plus is a pain-free and easy method of examination; it gives us the best chance of locating any oral irregularities that our patients have during its early stages. Our practice is excited to offer this method of screening, and new and existing patients can enjoy oral cancer screenings using the ViziLite Plus device at our state-of-the-art facility. While we examine and clean your teeth and gums, we can also look into any concerns within the mouth that may be an indication of a serious dental condition such as oral cancer. Call us today to opt in for a ViziLite Plus examination!
