What Happens During A Teeth Cleaning?

Gum Health

Your gums are the unsung heroes of your smile, providing essential support to your teeth. We meticulously examine your tongue, gums, teeth, and every corner of your mouth, with a keen focus on the gum line to ensure overall oral health, free from inflammation or impending gum disease. Don’t worry; we won’t scold you about your flossing habits.

Plaque & Tartar Removal

Plaque, a soft, sticky film, can harden into stubborn tartar deposits if left unattended. Tartar often lurks in hard-to-reach areas, such as the gumline. Our expert hygienists skillfully remove plaque and tartar buildup, finally unveiling your gleaming teeth after polishing away stains.

Dentist Exam

Following a thorough cleaning, our dentists perform an examination, reviewing your chart and x-rays. They pinpoint any problem areas or concerning patterns, offering further treatment recommendations and valuable advice on preventing or addressing tooth decay, inflammation, or gum disease. We’re here to address your questions and any discomfort or dental pain you may have encountered. Your oral health is our priority.

Cost Of Teeth Cleaning In Calgary

Regular dental checkups and cleanings are a highly effective preventive measure, often covered extensively by most insurance providers, typically scheduled every 6 months. For those without dental insurance, costs can range from $120 to $300 or more, particularly for first-time visitors or those returning after an extended period.

The actual cost of your treatment hinges on several vital factors:
  • Your present oral health.
  • Necessity for new x-rays.
  • Time needed to address your specific dental needs.
  • Required equipment and supplies.

We place significant importance on these routine appointments, viewing them as a proactive way to prevent more invasive treatments, mitigate serious dental discomfort, and ensure your continued well-being and satisfaction. Your oral health is our priority.

Even if you wear dentures, we encourage you to visit us to ensure their condition and fit are optimal. Additionally, our examination extends to the overall health of your mouth, ensuring your continued oral well-being.

Act promptly! If you’re experiencing any mouth pain or discomfort, don’t hesitate to give us a call immediately.

Most dental cleanings last between 30 minutes to an hour on average, and are performed in a lying position in a comfortable dental chair.

Opt for fluoride-infused tartar-control toothpaste. While effective toothbrushing is essential, dental floss remains the sole means to eliminate plaque between your teeth and safeguard these challenging spots from tartar buildup. Make rinsing a daily habit. Incorporate daily use of antiseptic mouthwash to combat the bacteria responsible for plaque formation.

Sustaining a routine of brushing and flossing your teeth following a professional cleaning is the most effective method to uphold the results achieved by your dentist.

After a standard dental cleaning, it’s generally fine to resume eating, but it’s advisable to steer clear of acidic or abrasive foods and drinks. However, if you’ve undergone a fluoride treatment during your cleaning, it’s best to wait at least 30 minutes before consuming anything.
