Interproximal Medicine Hat

At Tori Plaza Dental in Medicine Hat, AB, we understand the importance of maintaining the health of the interproximal areas in your mouth. These are the spaces between your teeth that are occupied by your gums, and they play a significant role in your overall oral health. Proper care and attention to interproximal spaces can help prevent issues like oral biofilm buildup and gum disease.

Our dedicated dental team, led by Dr. Saad Omaiche, is committed to helping you protect your oral health through comprehensive dental care that includes interproximal care and maintenance.

The Importance of Interproximal Care

Interproximal spaces can be challenging to clean effectively, even with regular brushing and flossing. This makes them susceptible to the accumulation of oral biofilm, commonly known as bacterial plaque. When plaque builds up in these areas, it can lead to various dental problems, including:

  • Gingivitis: Inflammation of the gums caused by the presence of plaque and bacteria in the interproximal areas.
  • Gum Disease (Periodontitis): If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to gum disease, which can have serious consequences for your oral health.
  • Tooth Decay: Interproximal spaces are also at risk for cavities, especially if they are not cleaned thoroughly.

Our Interproximal Care Services

At our practice, we offer a range of interproximal care services to help you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. Our services include:

  • Dental Cleanings: Regular professional cleanings are essential to remove plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas, including the interproximal spaces.
  • Periodontal Care: If you have gum disease, we provide effective treatments to manage and improve your gum health.
  • Orthodontics: Correcting misaligned teeth can help reduce the risk of interproximal issues by making these areas easier to clean.
  • Education and Prevention: Our team will educate you on proper oral hygiene techniques and provide guidance on maintaining your interproximal health at home.

Don't overlook the importance of interproximal care in your oral hygiene routine. Neglecting these areas can lead to serious dental problems.
