Preventive examinations, professional cleanings, and tailored preventive procedures are the foundation for retaining the good oral health so tied to good quality of life. Generally, it is recommended that checkups be scheduled every 6 months. However, Dr. Rina Kotecha may recommend visits more frequently to Dentistry on 10.

For instance, should you have a history of gum disease it may be necessary for Dr. Kotecha to evaluate how well your mouth is healing following deep cleanings, scaling and root planing, or even home care methods such as recommended brushing or flossing techniques and at-home periodontal trays. Gum disease is a highly preventable condition. You can even reverse its effects if caught in its earlier stages known as gingivitis.

There are specific threats to even the littlest patients’ good oral health. For example, parents may put infants to bed with bottles full of fruit juice. However, many fruit juices contain very little actual fruit and are very sugary. This habit can result in early childhood caries. When children develop early tooth decay and tooth loss it can affect every corner of their lives and have lingering effects that last well into adulthood.

With dental visits starting before baby’s first birthday or when the first tooth erupts, you can establish healthy habits. Dr. Kotecha will share oral hygiene techniques with you, and make suggestions for how to prevent early damage to teeth such as foods and drinks to avoid.

Even when you have had no problems with your teeth throughout your youth and into your adulthood, the state of your oral health can change with age. Senior patients may be at greater risk of medical conditions that cause dry mouth. Since saliva is a natural cleanser, a decrease in its production can have detrimental effects on the health of the teeth and gums.

Other problems that can be spotted early during ongoing checkups and cleanings include:

  • Worn or poorly-fitting restorations such as crowns, which can allow bacteria to seep into the tooth
  • Decreased saliva production caused by medications used to treat chronic conditions
  • The acceleration of gum disease symptoms associated with diseases such as diabetes
  • Bleeding gums brought on by hormonal changes among women entering menopause

Know you are in good hands through every step of your oral health journey when you choose Dentistry on 10 as your answer to, “Which dentist is near me in Mississauga?” Schedule your exam with Dr. Kotecha and her team by calling (905) 455-9262.
