Dental Cleanings in Medicine Hat

When was the last time you had your teeth cleaned? Can’t remember? Then it is time you booked a cleaning with your dentist at Park Meadows Dental. Why do you need to get your teeth cleaned? Isn’t brushing and flossing enough? Getting your teeth professionally cleaned helps you maintain good oral hygiene. We are happy that you have a good oral health care routine at home but a professional dental cleaning can get into the crevices between your teeth where a home cleaning cannot. Professional cleanings help you reduce the risk of cavities and gum diseases and can get rid of those nasty stains from coffee and red wine. How often do you need to have your teeth cleaned? For optimum dental health, professional teeth cleaning is recommended every 6 months.

Cleaning Process

Did you just have a dental exam? You might have a dental cleaning on the same day as these two procedures are often done together. When you come in for a professional cleaning, your dentist will examine your mouth to look for signs of disease. They may incorporate the use of specially designed oral cameras, x-rays, and other top-of-the-line tools to assist in the process. If any problems are identified, your dentist will request a follow-up appointment to provide treatment.

Cleaning your teeth means removing the plaque and tartar that have built up around your teeth and gums. The dental hygienist will remove this build-up to prevent tooth decay and gingivitis. Depending on how long it has been since your last dental cleaning, you may require a follow-up appointment to complete the process.

Don’t be afraid to get your teeth cleaned. Your dentist can offer a local anesthetic to make the process more comfortable for you.

Cleaning your teeth is a positive process and we help you with the use of various flavoured cleaning pastes. Your hygienist will offer you a choice of flavours to enhance the cleaning process. You will leave the dentist’s chair with sparkling clean teeth and fresh breath.

Children also need to have their teeth cleaned regularly. They often have a difficult time getting those little teeth as clean as they should be because their dexterity is not the same as an adult. Your dentist may recommend your child has a sealant placed on their molars to help prevent the formation of cavities. Protecting the molars with a sealant helps keep harmful bacteria from getting stuck in the grooves.

Getting your teeth cleaned helps keep you on track for great oral health. Your dentist at Park Meadows Dental will give you some tips and tricks to keep your teeth sparkling until your next cleaning. Visiting your dentist twice a year is a must to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Are you happy with your teeth cleaning but want a whiter smile? Maybe it’s time you tried a professional whitening. Ask your dentist about the details.
