Buccal Thornhill

During a dental examination at our practice, we follow a meticulous process to assess the condition of your teeth and gums, which includes documenting any existing fillings and identifying areas where cavities require attention. Think of it as creating a unique fingerprint for your mouth.

As we carefully inspect every aspect of your oral health, you may hear us use terminology that seems unfamiliar, almost like a different language. One term you might encounter is "buccal." For example, when we mention that a tooth requires a buccal, it means that a specific surface of the tooth needs a buccal filling.

But what does "buccal" actually mean? It refers to the surface of the tooth that is located opposite the cheek.

At Rosedale Dental in Thornhill, our goal is to provide you with comprehensive dental care and ensure that you understand the details of your oral health. If you have any questions or concerns about your dental examination or any other aspect of your dental care, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to address your needs and provide you with the highest level of care.
