Have you received dental cleaning services in Calgary in the last year?
Dental hygienists professionally clean your teeth to prevent gum diseases, remove stains and discolouration, remove built-up plaque and tartar that lead to decay and gum recession while evaluating your overall oral hygiene. Professional dental cleaning is more than just having a bright white smile (as important as that is too!). Regularly scheduled cleaning is key to maintaining the long-term health of your teeth.
In most dental cleaning services in Calgary, your hygienist will start by asking if you have any pain or discomfort. They’ll provide a quick examination that can prevent early signs of problems such as:
The hygienist should perform an evaluation comparing your oral health between your current and previous visits. They can give helpful advice on how to avoid grinding your teeth, proper flossing, and useful brushing techniques. Cleaning usually takes about an hour, depending on the current health of your teeth and gums.
Your appointment may start with an X-ray and pictures. This is done if it’s been a while since your last X-ray or if you're a new patient at our dental clinic. Don’t worry, there’s no pain. As a matter of fact, there really shouldn’t be any pain throughout the entire cleaning unless you have unusually sensitive teeth or have an ongoing issue. We hope that’s a relief to hear!
Get ready to love your brighter and more confident smile! Depending on the health of your teeth and gums, your dentist or hygienist will recommend professional cleaning once or twice a year. Other factors, like tobacco use, the presence of periodontal disease, or braces might require coming in more often to prevent bacteria in your mouth, reduce the risk of tooth decay, bad breath, and keep your pearly whites in great health.
