Patient education is critical. Knowing the risk factors of oral health conditions and diseases can be empowering. Awareness can cause you to change your habits and oral health regimen. Recognizing symptoms of a condition or disease can prompt seeking treatment immediately. As a result, you can help prevent other health issues. Dr. France Chevalier's Gloucester patients appreciate the education she provides. Therefore, they visit her Ottawa dental office for various reasons from dental check-ups to mercury free procedures.
It is important to schedule dental appointments every six months. These include thorough examinations of your mouth, teeth, and gums to help prevent cavities and gum disease. Teeth cleanings help clear plaque and tartar from the teeth. At the appointment, you may also receive oral healthcare instructions to follow at home.
Oral cancer screenings
It is critical to have an oral cancer screening to check for signs of abnormal tissues. Dr. Chevalier joins more than 12,000 dental practitioners that use a technology called VELscope. She uses the device to illuminate abnormalities, which are less visible with the unassisted eye. Oral cancer screenings are important because more treatment options are available with early detection.
Dr. Chevalier uses technology that helps in educating you during treatment. She uses an intraoral camera, which takes images inside the mouth. She can then display the images on a computer screen, to explain a condition and recommended treatment. Dr. Chevalier uses digital x-rays instead of traditional photographic film. This technology offers the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images on the computer screen. Together, you and Dr. Chevalier can look at the problem areas and explore the right treatment.
Mercury free dental procedures
Dr. Chevalier offers cosmetic, restorative, and preventative solutions to improve the health and beauty of the smile. Teeth whitening and veneers can brighten dull teeth. Dental bonding and crowns can help restore damaged teeth. We use dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures when one or more teeth are missing. Dr. Chevalier wants to protect patients and staff from the potential dangers of metal, so her procedures are mercury free. Instead, she uses biocompatible dental materials such as composite resin and porcelain.
