Oral Hygiene Near You

Why Are Regular Dental Hygiene Appointments Important?

At Sandstone Dental we offer dental hygiene and teeth cleaning services. We know that healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.

Research has linked periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, in that it may increase your risk in 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 Sandstone Dental is dedicated to helping you maintain your gums and overall oral health.

Routine home brushing and flossing, while very effective, only focuses on areas of the tooth that are above the gum line. Professional dental cleanings in NW Calgary performed by a dental hygienist allows us to clean your teeth above and below the gum line, which is known as scaling and root planing. It is only through regular scaling and root planing procedures that remove plaque, tartar and bacteria toxins from those hard to reach areas below the gum line that we can keep your gums healthy from top to bottom!

Our Dental Team uses traditional hand scalers and ultrasonic scaling tools to remove stubborn deposits and tartar (known as calculus). The goal of regular oral hygiene services near you is to prevent periodontal disease commonly referred to as gum disease. Gum disease is often pain-free in early stages but can ultimately result in premature tooth loss and lead to other health issues if left unattended.

What Happens At A Dental Hygiene Appointment?

As well as cleaning your teeth above and below the gum-line, our Dental Team will perform a number of important oral health checks at your hygiene appointment, including:

  • a complete periodontal (gum health) assessment
  • checking for any gum recession
  • checking for the presence of gingivitis (inflamed and bleeding gums)
  • polishing your teeth to remove any surface stain
  • fluoride treatment (if required) to help prevent cavities from forming and remineralize or strengthen areas of weak tooth enamel.
  • an oral cancer screening and exam at least once a year to check the head, neck and jaw areas for confirmation of health
  • an intra-oral exam to check the gum tissues, tongue, and lips for confirmation of health
  • digital x-rays (when needed)

How Often Should You Visit Us for A Hygiene Visit?

How often you need to visit Sandstone Dental for a dental hygiene visit depends on several factors. Are your teeth susceptible to excess accumulation of plaque and calculus? Do you have crowded teeth, fillings or missing teeth? These are all cases that can lead to increased plaque buildup and require more frequent visits. Our Dental Team knows that each patient will require a different dental hygiene schedule. While most people have a dental hygiene visit every six months, some people may benefit by coming in every 3-4 months, while others might only require a hygiene appointment every nine or even every 12 months. Our dedicated dental team will discuss with you how often you should have dental cleanings in NW Calgary based on your specific individual oral health needs.
