At Acqua Dental Centre, we strongly believe that prevention is key when it comes to keeping your teeth free from dental diseases. Our fluoride treatments, oral examinations and dental cleaning in Richmond go hand-in-hand with regular brushing and flossing to maintain oral health. Over time, your teeth can accumulate plaque, which flossing and brushing might not be able to address. This can eventually become more severe, such as cavities and infections. 

We provide efficient dental cleaning in Richmond and the nearby areas, along with our preventative services. Our solutions allow us to detect early signs of dental diseases and nip them in the bud. We can make informed recommendations based on carefully assessing your oral history.

We understand that visiting the dentist can cause anxiety. For this reason, we ensure your experience with us is as smooth as possible. We will provide all the information you need to make a sensible decision and offer a warm and welcoming environment.

Please contact us for dental cleaning in Richmond or any other preventative dental service.

For new patients, we recommend a full mouth series of dental X-rays. However, if you are an existing patient, it will vary depending on your specific dental health needs. We use dental X-rays to find valuable information during your regular exam to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and provide a complete and accurate treatment plan.

Dental X-rays can provide important diagnostic and preventive information : 

  • Bone loss

  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumours

  • Decay between your teeth

  • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line

Fluoride is an effective treatment to help prevent tooth decay. Our dentist or hygienist applies fluoride to your teeth after teeth cleaning. It is recommended not to take any drink or food for half an hour until fluoride is completely absorbed.

Although this treatment will prevent cavities, fluoride alone won’t prevent tooth decay. Regular teeth cleaning, brushing, and flossing are necessary to keep your teeth healthy. 


Our ultimate goal is that you have a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime. To achieve this goal, you must take care of your teeth daily, such as:

  • Tooth brushing at least twice a day, especially before going to bed at night

  • Flossing daily prevents damage to your gums, teeth, and bone

  • Rinsing is important to do after brushing, and also after meals if you are unable to brush for whatever reason

How to properly brush and floss


Regarding oral hygiene, brushing and flossing are your most important actions. You should brush your teeth at least twice daily, ideally in the morning and before bed. Then, flossing is as important since it is a tool for preventing periodontal disease and limiting the depth of your gum pockets. Proper brushing and flossing will help prevent:

  • Tooth decay

  • Periodontal disease

  • Halitosis

  • Staining


While regular dental checkups are essential to maintain excellent oral hygiene, you can’t approach them as a fix-all solution. To prevent dental issues like periodontal disease, the main cause of tooth loss, you must maintain your daily oral hygiene habits.

The most common oral hygiene aids you can use: 

  • Dental flosses

  • Interdental cleaners

  • Mouth rinses

  • Oral irrigators

  • Rubber tip stimulators

  • Tongue cleaners

  • Toothbrushes

Oral hygiene aids


Also known as Panorex® or an orthopantomogram, panoramic X-rays are wrap-around photographs of your face and teeth, exposing hidden structures that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. Only taken on a case-by-case basis, these X-rays provide a better view of your sinus areas, nasal areas, and mandibular nerves. They are also used to:

  • Reveal gum disease and cavities

  • Expose impacted teeth

  • Expose jawbone fractures

  • Assess patients with an extreme gag reflex

  • Evaluate the progression of TMJ

  • Expose cysts and abnormalities 

  • Plan treatment (full and partial dentures, braces, and implants)


More than 75% of dental decay begins in these deep grooves in teeth. To protect your teeth, we can apply a sealant, which is a thin, plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars, and any deep grooves. While sealants can protect your teeth for many years, you still need to get them checked for wear and chipping during your regular dental visits. Some reasons to consider sealants include:

  • Children and teenagers: as soon as the 6-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear or any time throughout the cavity-prone years between 6-16 years old

  • Adults: tooth surfaces without decay that have deep grooves or depressions

  • Baby teeth: Occasionally done if teeth have deep grooves or depressions and the child is cavity-prone

Panoramic X-Rays


The VELscope® examination is a painless and non-invasive procedure that saves many lives yearly and only takes 2 or 3 minutes. To best stay protected, you should get an annual oral cancer screening, which most dentists perform during a regular dental checkup. Some of the advantages of using the VELscope® System include:

  • Detects problem areas that cannot be seen under white light

  • Exposes precancerous and cancerous tissue

  • FDA-approved

  • Helps dentists check that diseased soft tissue is completely removed

  • Helps diagnose oral cancer in its earliest stages, exponentially increasing the chance of survival
