Professional Teeth Cleaning Stoney Creek, Ontario
Yes, brushing your teeth and flossing regularly are sure ways to help prevent periodontal disease, but there are still many bacteria on your teeth that you can’t remove yourself and must be removed by a professional. Here at Orchard Park Dental in Stoney Creek, we perform thorough exams and teeth cleaning services to maintain your oral health. Remember to book your appointment today as well as every six months to undergo teeth cleaning services in our comfortable office.
Why Do I Need Deep Teeth Cleaning?
Deep cleaning is a way to remove harmful bacteria from your teeth and periodontal pockets (below the gum line) to keep your dental health in good condition. By not having the bacteria removed, you are potentially at risk of being diagnosed with periodontal disease. Periodontal disease affects the tissue that holds your teeth in place and can cause your gums to recede and your teeth to fall out. If early signs of periodontal disease are detected by our dental team, we’ll put the right preventive measures in place to reverse them.
Our Oral Cleaning Services
Every six months, we encourage our patients of all ages to visit our Stoney Creek dental care office so we can help them maintain their oral health through every stage of life. During your general cleaning appointment, our dental team will start by examining your mouth and surrounding areas to ensure there are no signs of complications and, from there, continue the teeth cleaning process:
This is accomplished with a hooked tool called a scaler. We know you don't necessarily enjoy the feeling or sound of the scraping, but it's what helps us to remove the buildup of plaque and tartar on each tooth and from around your gums that you can't otherwise remove yourself.
Polishing & Flossing
Next, it's time to polish your teeth with a flavoured, gritty paste. The grittiness is what helps in the teeth whitening process and removes stains. After it's applied and rinsed off, your teeth will be flossed to remove any leftover debris.
The final step! You'll get to choose which fluoride flavour you prefer and apply it to a mouthpiece that will sit on your teeth for about a minute's time. This also helps the teeth whitening process and fights against cavities. Fluoride is a mineral that's naturally found in your tooth enamel and can help remineralize it.
