Professional Teeth Cleanings - Richmond Hills & Thronhill
To keep cavities and gum disease away, the best thing you can do for your smile is to maintain good oral hygiene. Good oral hygiene involves brushing your teeth at least twice a day (once in the morning and before bed) and flossing. By practicing these oral hygiene habits, you’re removing the harmful bacteria that can cause oral diseases. However, there’s still one more missing piece to the puzzle...
In addition to brushing and flossing, professional teeth cleanings are important to keep your smile healthy. The Canadian Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a checkup and cleaning. These checkups and cleanings are important because it allows the dentist to check and treat any oral problems, such as decay and gum disease.
During your checkup and cleaning, we will perform a number of things:
- Removing tartar, which is the hardened plaque that has accumulated over your teeth. Tartar can only be removed by using specialized instruments from your dentist.
- Removing plaque, which is the clear sticky substance that can inflame gum tissues and cause gum disease.
- Polishing your teeth and removing stains and harmful plaque.
- Giving a fluoride treatment, which involves coating your teeth with fluoride to protect it from decay.
Our dedicated hygienist will inspect, clean, and treat your mouth to ensure your smile is healthy and fresh. We will also give you oral hygiene tips so that your smile stays healthy between visits.
