We recommend regular trips to the hygienist to stop periodontal disease in its tracks
Plaque is a sticky substance that can build up on your teeth. It’s difficult to remove with regular brushing alone. Left to linger, this can increase the bacteria in your mouth and lead to an infection in your gum tissue known as periodontal disease, or gum disease.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. This is why we recommend regular visits to the dental hygienist for deep teeth cleaning.
Bleeding gums is the first sign of gum disease.
If you notice blood when you brush your teeth, this could be an early sign of gum disease. Don’t delay, book an appointment with our team in Calgary to help protect your teeth.
Here’s what you can expect from your deep teeth cleaning
Is this your first time here? Don’t worry, our team will do all they can to put you at ease.
A professional tooth cleaning appointment doesn’t hurt and it isn’t scary. Our team is trained to help even the most nervous patients get over their fear of the dentist’s chair. If you haven’t been to the dentist for a while, a trip to the dental hygienist could be the best way to put your nerves at ease. Here’s what you can expect.
It all starts with a deep cleaning, which is sometimes known as a scale and polish, or air polishing. This removes plaque, tartar and stains from the surface of the teeth. Your dental hygienist will use special tools to blow high-pressure air, water and powder onto the surface of your tooth. It shouldn’t hurt at all.
You may also be offered a topical fluoride treatment to seal and protect your enamel. Your dental hygienist will also give you advice on caring for your teeth at home. Every mouth is different, which is why customized advice on brushing and flossing is so helpful. This advice will also change as you get older, so it’s a good idea to attend regular checkups for updated advice.
And if you’re thinking about other dental treatments such as dental implants or teeth whitening, your dental hygienist can help you to understand the pros and cons of these treatments. A trip to the dental hygienist is the best time to ask questions about your oral health.
