At Sandstone Dental, we offer dental hygiene and teeth cleaning services in NW Calgary. We understand that having healthy gums and teeth is the foundation of a radiant smile.
Research has linked periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, in that it may increase your risk of developing many other health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, asthma, osteoporosis, premature births, and low birth weights, impotence and many types of cancers. That is why our team at Sandstone Dental is dedicated to ensuring that you maintain optimal oral health.
While routine home oral hygiene routines such as brushing and flossing are very effective, they only address areas of the tooth that are above the gum line. Professional dental cleanings in NW Calgary performed by a dental hygienist allow us to thoroughly clean your teeth below and above the gum line through scaling and root planing. Scaling and root planing procedures are the only effective way to remove tartar, plaque, and harmful bacteria from the hard-to-reach areas in the mouth.
Our team at Sandstone Dental uses traditional hand scalers and tools to remove deposits of plaque of tartar. The ultimate goal of professional dental cleanings near you is to prevent periodontal disease. Often, gum disease does not show any symptoms until it is in its advanced stages but can result in premature tooth loss and other health issues if left unaddressed.
