Dental Exams & Cleanings
An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure
The health of your teeth is very important to the well-being of your entire body, and while regular brushing is necessary to keep your teeth looking its best, visiting our Calgary trained hygienist and dentists for a dental exam and cleaning is essential.
Regular dental cleaning is recommended every 6-9 months for adults and every 6 months for children under 12 to ensure your teeth stay healthy. Fluoride applications for children with high risk of dental decay is also offered.
By visiting our NW Calgary dentists regularly for exams and cleanings, you can:
- Proactively prevent tooth decay
- Avoid gum disease and bad breath
- Prevent costly dental procedures
- Keep your teeth white by reducing buildup and staining
- Have healthy white teeth and a beautiful smile
Regular dental exams will help you keep your gums teeth strong and healthy. During your exam, our Calgary dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for signs of tooth decay, gum disease and other health problems, which typically lead to bad breath and costly dental procedures if not treated.
Your dentist may also want to take X-rays of your teeth and mouth to help our dentists discover any dental issues beneath the surface of your teeth and gums. Dental decay and gum disease if caught early can be easily treated. If you wait until a tooth-ache develops to have dental treatment the procedure and costs may become more involved.
Teeth Cleaning by our Calgary Dental Hygientist
Our Calgary NW dental hygienist will examine the surface of your teeth to determine if you have any cavities. Our dental hygienist will then check your gums to determine if they adhere tightly to your teeth, and to ensure you do not have periodontal disease or bone loss.
Next, our hygienist will carefully clean your teeth by removing tartar buildup from your teeth and will follow-up with flossing your teeth by using a polishing compound, while using fluoride.
During your dental exam, if your dentist or hygienist finds tooth decay or gum disease, they will talk to you about changing your brushing or flossing habits, or recommend other dental treatments.
