STAINLESS, SHINY, HEALTHY TEETH WITH REGULAR CLEANINGS

DENTAL TEETH CLEANING NEAR YOU IN MISSISSAUGA
 

WHY SHOULD I GET MY TEETH PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED REGULARLY? 

 

Bacteria (plaque) build-up on your teeth and under the gum line can cause gum disease. Plaque build-up can turn into calculus (tartar).

The simplest and easiest way to remove plaque is to brush and floss your teeth daily. There are always be areas that are hard to clean to remove plaque and tartar with brush and floss alone.

Your dental hygienist at Dunwin Dental can professionally clean these hard to clean areas by scraping plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth using dental instruments. She will use hand instruments or a vibrating ultrasonic instrument depending upon the area and stubbornness of plaque or tartar.

Your teeth may also look dirty because of stains (not to be confused with natural colour of your teeth). Tea, coffee, wine, tobacco, disease, medications, poor dental hygiene, genetics, aging etc. can cause these stains.

Your dental hygienist can easily remove these stains by polishing your teeth. She may also apply fluoride to strengthen your teeth.

The end result is that professional cleaning and polishing of your teeth can reduce your risk of gum disease, stop it from becoming more serious and you will have clean stain-free teeth.

Routine cleanings are imperative for the overall health of your smile. During a professional dental cleaning, it’s easy for us to detect early signs of problems, such as broken fillings and fractures. Having your teeth cleaned also helps by preventing gum disease, which leads to early tooth loss. That is why a visit to Dunwin Dental for general dentistry services is a must for maintaining your smile.

THE TEETH CLEANING PROCESS AND WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Our Registered Dental Hygienist will review your chart and medical history as well as your current health status and start with a physical exam of your entire mouth to identify factors that could affect your dental hygiene treatment.

  • We use a small mirror to check around your teeth and gums and measure the space between your gums and teeth for any signs of gingivitis (inflamed gums) or other potential concerns.

  • We then use a scaler to get rid of plaque and tartar around your gum line, as well as in between your teeth.

  • Polish your teeth to remove any stains.

  • The last step of the cleaning process is a fluoride treatment. This treatment is used as a protectant for your teeth to help fight against cavities for several months.
