Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Dr. Bal and our team are pleased to provide thorough dental checkups and teeth cleanings, as this is where optimal oral healthcare begins. Twice each year, we will examine your smile using advanced technologies and instruments that pinpoint problem areas as well as clear away accumulated plaque and tartar. This not only reduces your risk of cavities and gum disease but also ensures there are no lesions, sores, or other abnormalities forming inside the mouth.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screenings are part of regular dental checkups. At least once each year, our team will take the time to examine your oral structures as well as your neck and throat. We’ll check your gums, lips, cheeks, tongue, and other facial areas to ensure there are no signs that point to oral cancer. While many patients move through the process without any issues, our team will walk you through how to proceed should we find anything that might be a cause for concern.

Fluoride Treatment

At Nepean Dental Centre, we offer patients the opportunity to further safeguard their smiles with fluoride treatment. Found in various foods and city tap water, this natural mineral possesses tremendous benefits when fighting tooth decay and strengthening enamel. Applied in-house during a routine dental checkup, fluoride treatments take only minutes to better protect teeth between appointments. In no time at all, this painless process can help cavity-prone patients like you or your children enjoy healthier, stronger smiles.

Athletic Mouthguards/ Sportsguards

Playing sports is a great way to stay healthy and fit, but it can also be detrimental to your smile. With nearly half of all dental injuries occurring as a result of playing sports, both adults and children need additional protection. This is why Dr. Bal provides customized mouthguards/sportsguards for patients in our Nepean dental office. Designed for comfort and maximum support, they keep teeth and gums protected so that you and your child can focus more on the game.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Regular teeth grinding and clenching may not be something you realize is occurring throughout the night but over time, it can wear down tooth enamel and cause chronic jaw pain. Fortunately, a customized nightguard can protect your pearly whites by serving as a barrier to keep the upper and lower arches of teeth from touching. Not to mention, pressure placed on the facial muscles and jaw joints will be reduced, lowering your risk for temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD).
