Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Did you know that teeth cleaning is a necessary part of oral hygiene? Teeth cleaning involves the removal of plaque in order to prevent cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Southcentre Dental Dental Cleaning Process
Teeth cleaning procedure usually takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes. It is a simple and painless process that first starts with a physical exam of your mouth, including taking x-rays. Next, the dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar around your gum line and in between your teeth by using a scaling tool. This process helps prevent the development or progression of gum disease.
Once the plaque is removed, the dental hygienist will use a high-power electric brush to remove any residual tartar. Finally, the last step is a fluoride treatment where foamy gel is placed on your teeth for one minute. This foamy gel acts as a protectant for your teeth to help fight cavities.
In addition, Dr. Jennifer Silver and her team promote the practice of comprehensive dental care. Our philosophy is based on the importance of maintaining good home hygiene practices as well as seeking regular, professional dental care. Both aspects are necessary to keep your teeth and gums in the best shape possible. We also believe that preventative dental care is the best medicine — that’s why we teach our Calgary patients the benefits of home and professional care starting at a young age.
Each patient receives a periodontal screening examination, but we also get to know your home care habits, as well. We feel that if we can help you create and maintain a regular routine that works for you, you may be able to avoid many of the pitfalls that ignoring your teeth and gums can cause.
Prevention: The Best Medicine
At Southcentre Dental, our dentistry team teaches the advantages of very specific hygiene practices, including regular brushing with electric, soft-bristled tooth brushes, non-abrasive toothpaste, and proper flossing techniques.
In many cases, home hygiene is insufficient to prevent periodontal disease. If you have swollen or bleeding gums you may have periodontal disease (gum disease). Unfortunately periodontal disease can be very destructive to your oral health not to mention your general health. Periodontal disease is essentially the breakdown of the body structures that support your teeth and gums.
