Your Step To Optimum Oral Health
What To Expect During Your Teeth Cleaning and Check-Up
When you visit our South Calgary dental office for teeth cleaning and check-up, our Midpark Dental hygiene team will clean your teeth both above the gum line, which is known as scaling; and below the gum line, using a technique called root planing.
We use traditional hand scalers and our ultrasonic scaling tools to remove calcium deposits, called calculus, from your teeth.
In addition to your thorough teeth cleaning above and below the gum line, our team will complete a number of oral treatments including:
A comprehensive periodontal assessment, checking for gum recession, the presence of gingivitis and possible gum disease
Polishing your teeth to remove hard to remove surface stains
Fluoride treatment strengthens the enamel in areas that may be weak
An extra-oral exam at least once a year to check the head, neck and jaw areas for abnormalities
An oral cancer screening that checks the gum tissues, tongue, and lips for signs of oral cancer
Digital X-rays (when needed)
During your checkup, we encourage you to ask questions about your oral health. Our dedicated team will help answer your questions so you receive the best care for you and your family’s dental health.
What Is Deep Cleaning?
If it has been a long time since you have been to the dentist and had your teeth cleaned, then you may need to undergo a deep cleaning session. This is where your dentist will clean your mouth to treat any gum or periodontal disease. To learn more about teeth cleaning procedures in South Calgary, please contact us.
How Often Should You Have A Cleaning and Check-Up?
The frequency of your teeth cleanings and checkups depends on several factors. If your teeth are susceptible to the accumulation of plaque and calculus, if you have crowded teeth, or if you have gum disease, the frequency of your visits may not match the other members of your family.
Our dental team evaluates each patient on an individual basis to determine the dental hygiene schedule that will attend to your specific needs the beat.
Most patients visit Midpark Dental for their dental hygiene appointments every 6 months, but some people may benefit by coming in every 3-4 months, and others may only require a hygiene appointment every 9-12 months.
Our team at Midpark Dental will advise you on how often you should visit our South Calgary dental practice to maintain your oral health and wellness.
