Regular dentist visits aren’t just about keeping your smile looking great - a checkup can reveal a lot about your overall health. The latest research from the Canadian Dental Association suggests that the health of your mouth mirrors the condition of your body as a whole. Cavities and gum diseases may contribute to many serious conditions, such as diabetes and respiratory diseases.
The oral cavity is connected to the rest of the human body and therefor oral health is directly linked to your general health. Good oral hygiene may decrease your chances of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, stroke, periodontal disease and other health issues. Plaque forms on your teeth and if it is not removed it can cause cavities, gingivitis, gum disease and even tooth loss. At JVR Dental we recommend that you get professional cleanings done by an Oral Hygienist every 6 months or as recommended. This cleaning includes scaling and polishing of your teeth and followed by topical fluoride for children and adults. Our hygienist can also assist you with brushing and flossing techniques to prevent future problems.
Dental sealants are usually done on teeth with deep pits and fissures on the biting surfaces. These are usually the areas that are most vulnerable to tooth decay. A sealant is a flowable material that flows into the deep pits and fissures to fill them, creating a smooth easy to clean surface that protects your teeth against cavities.

If you play any sport, chances are good that you will need a properly fitted sports guard. Most sport injuries occur to your lips, teeth or tongue and damages can be minimized by wearing a custom fitted sports guard.
