Exams & Cleaning
NW Calgary teeth cleanings and dental checkups.
What takes place during a NW Calgary teeth cleaning and dental checkup?
Relax in our comfy chairs and watch TV as our NW Calgary dental team cleans and examines your teeth. First, we remove tartar and plaque from your teeth with a professional cleaning.
Then we examine your mouth for early signs of oral cancer and diseases such as gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Next, our dental hygienists provide preventive dental care and explain ways to improve and maintain good oral health for years to come.
Lastly, Dr. Le examines your dental x-rays and teeth, creates a dental treatment plan if necessary, thoroughly explains your next steps, and answers any questions.
Why are Regular Exams & Cleanings Important?
Regular teeth cleanings and dental checkups are important for maintaining optimal oral health. These routine visits help Dr. Le identify problems early on, which prevents many easily manageable conditions from becoming more serious and costly in the long run.
Even if you’re a great brusher, regular dental hygiene visits are necessary to clean the areas your toothbrush and dental floss can’t reach. Unfortunately, when plaque becomes trapped below the gum line, it turns into a hard deposit (tartar) which can irritate the gums and wreak havoc. Our dental hygiene team removes tartar to promote healthier gums and prevent gum disease.
So, make sure to book regular visits to 16th Avenue Dental and enjoy a healthier smile.
