Nothing beats the feeling of smooth, plaque-free teeth after a dental cleaning. Whenever you run your tongue along your teeth or see your smile in the mirror, you notice the difference that dental care makes.
How do dentists get your teeth so clean? And why is it important to book dental cleanings a few times a year? We’re going to explain what you can expect the next time you see your dental hygienist. Protect your teeth and gums by scheduling a professional teeth cleaning at Saskatoon Dental House.
Dental Hygiene Appointments
Even if you’re brushing and flossing regularly, it’s still important to book a professional dental cleaning twice a year. Your overall health is linked to your oral health; a healthy smile is part of a healthy body. Prevent oral health issues including gum disease, tooth decay, and plaque build-up.
At Dental House, we know that each smile is unique. You need a cleaning regimen that’s tailored to your mouth to maintain the best oral health possible. We take care to consider the needs of each patient. The goal at our dental clinic is to prevent cavities, protect your teeth, and leave you with a radiant smile.
Regular Dental Exams
It’s not always easy to tell when you have a cavity. Sometimes, cavities develop without changing the appearance of a tooth or causing pain. The best solution to a cavity is early treatment. Otherwise, it may develop into a bigger issue, which may require a dental crown or root canal treatment. Regular dental cleanings can also help detect issues you may not have noticed on your own.
During your exam, our dental hygienists can screen for signs and symptoms of oral cancer. We can also examine your gums for signs of periodontal disease, a condition that becomes irreversible at later stages (but can be treated and prevented with early intervention).
Practice preventative care by booking your annual dental exam; if you have advanced oral health problems (such as gum disease), we suggest more frequent exams and cleanings.
Cleaning between the teeth is just as important as cleaning the chewing surfaces. Flossing is the only way to remove plaque from these areas. Your dental hygienist will floss between each tooth to remove food debris and bacteria. We can also show you how to floss teeth in hard-to-reach areas, like the back of the mouth, to perfect your teeth cleaning routine.
Removal of Plaque & Tartar
Your dental hygienist can remove any tartar (or calculus) from your teeth. Tartar is a hardened mineral deposit that forms when plaque bacteria builds up on the teeth. It attracts bacteria to your teeth and can increase your risk of developing periodontal disease. Since it can’t be removed at home, you’ll need to book a teeth cleaning to remove all traces of plaque and tartar from your teeth.
Using various dentistry tools, we’ll remove any tartar from between the teeth or near the gum line. When we’re finished your dental cleaning, your teeth will feel clean as a whistle.
Give your teeth a smooth and flawless appearance with our teeth polishing dental services. Tooth polishing removes stains to reveal shinier, brighter teeth. For most patients, this is the part of teeth cleaning they look forward to; it leaves their teeth and gums in mint condition. We’ll follow up your polishing with a fluoride treatment, which helps protect against tooth decay for the months to come.
