Making sure you maintain a regular teeth cleaning schedule at home is essential in ensuring proper tooth and gum health. However, certain things cannot be cared for using regular household dental cleaning instruments. For this reason, making regularly scheduled appointments to have your teeth cleaned by the dentists and hygienists at Calgary’s Go Dental allows us to go the extra mile in maintaining the health and appearance of your pearly whites and gums.
While brushing and flossing effectively remove plaque from your teeth, these methods are ineffective in removing any tartar that may have built up. During a professional tooth cleaning at our Calgary dental clinic, your dentist will use specialized tools designed to completely remove tartar from your tooth’s surface.
After tartar has been successfully scraped off, your teeth will be ready for polishing using a gritty paste that removes surface stains and smoothing the tooth’s surface. Once the main cleaning process is complete, your dentist will cap off the tooth cleaning procedure in Calgary with a round of comprehensive flossing to ensure the areas between your teeth are entirely cleansed and cleared of plaque or debris.
In addition to providing your smile with a fresh-looking appearance, having your teeth professionally cleaned helps to prevent gingivitis and periodontal disease, and will also enable your dentist to thoroughly examine your mouth for cavities or any signs of oral cancer.
