Professional dental cleanings are not only vital to the health of your teeth and gums but also to your overall health. Dental cleanings should be done a minimum of twice a year, most adults often should be seen every 3-4 months
According to the Canadian Dental Association, 48% of Canadians who haven’t visited the dentist in the past year have gum disease.
Dental cleanings prevent tooth decay (cavities), gum disease, and other painful, costly conditions, such as permanent tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings are also especially important for pregnant women to prevent gingivitis. A professional teeth cleaning will also brighten your smile.
During your dental cleaning, we will also check for signs of other problems, such as oral cancer, and perform a head and neck examination, looking for signs of other cancers, diabetes, or vitamin deficiencies.
At Willow Dental, your cleaning appointment will begin with an examination of your teeth for signs of decay. We check the gums, tongue, and mouth, and perform a head and neck examination.
This appointment will also include a professional teeth cleaning. This will first involve removing plaque and tartar. Plaque and tartar can build up quickly, especially in the absence of good oral hygiene practices. Soft tartar can harden and irritate gum tissue, leading to gum disease.
Our dental hygienist will also polish your teeth and and floss them for a brighter smile. We may provide additional recommendations during your professional teeth cleaning, if necessary.
