Dental Hygiene & Cleaning Milton
Preventive dentistry is the key to a long-lasting, healthy smile. We are focused on giving our patients the information and preventive care that they deserve to limit the amount of dental care that they need over time.
Our dental hygienists are skilled and knowledgeable, and they work closely with you and our dentists to develop the best treatment plan. During your dental hygiene appointment, your hygienist will go over an assessment of your oral health, including looking at your soft tissues, taking measurements of the attachment levels of your gums, and removing deposits from your teeth. They will also provide recommendations. Our dental hygiene appointment includes an oral, periodontal, and dental exam, as well as scaling and root planing to remove harmful tartar deposits on your teeth, a dental polish, fluoride application, and Zoom Whitening. At your first visit, you will be asked to fill out a health and dental history form and bring your dental insurance information. During the examination, we will perform an oral cancer screening and record any existing restorations or enamel defects. Our goal is to provide comprehensive dental care to ensure the health of your teeth and gums.
Do I need to have my teeth professionally cleaned?
Even if you brush and floss after every meal and before bed, bacteria-harbouring plaque can accumulate in the tiny crevices, grooves and pits. Overtime, the teeth will begin to decay in those areas, which may result in pain and partial or total tooth loss.
What is Plaque and Calculus?
Plaque is the sticky, colorless film that constantly forms on your teeth. Bacteria live in plaque and secrete acids that cause tooth decay and irritate gum tissue. This irritation causes an inflammatory reaction by your body that can eventually lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease.
If plaque is not removed regularly by tooth brushing and flossing, it hardens to create calculus (also known as tartar). Calculus cannot be removed with a toothbrush; only a dental professional can remove it during an oral cleaning. To keep plaque and calculus under control, it is essential to brush your teeth twice every day, floss at least once every day, and see your dental professional for regular cleanings.
