Your SW Calgary Choice for Dental Hygiene & Teeth Cleanings!

SW Calgary Dental Hygiene | West Peaks Dental Suite | General & Family Dentist | SW Calgary

Healthy teeth and gums are the cornerstone of a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile! That is why West Peaks Dental Suite is pleased to offer dental hygiene and teeth cleaning appointments to help you achieve optimal dental health. While regular home care is very important, it only focuses on areas of the teeth above the gum line (called scaling). A professional dental cleaning can not only clean your teeth above the gum line, but below the gum line as well (called root planing). It is only through regular scaling and root planing that tartar, plaque, and bacteria can be removed from difficult to reach areas below the gum line that you cannot access yourself at home. Regular professional cleanings can help keep your teeth and gums healthy from top to bottom!

Regular Dental Hygiene and Teeth Cleanings Help Maintain Optimal Oral Health!

What Happens During a Professional Dental Hygiene and Teeth Cleaning Appointment?

  • A complete periodontal assessment
  • A complete check of your gum tissue: checking for any gum recession, the presence of gingivitis, and possible gum disease
  • An intra-oral exam to check the gum tissue, tongue, and lips for confirmation of optimal health
  • Scaling
    • Scaling is a process of removing plaque, tartar (calculus) and bacteria from your teeth so your gums and bone making up the foundation of your teeth remain healthy and disease free.
  • Polishing to remove stains from your teeth
  • Fluoride treatment (optional)
    • After your dental cleaning, you will be provided with an option to receive fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen the enamel (outer layer of your teeth) which helps to prevent cavities.
  • Oral cancer screening.
    • At each visit, we do our very best to screen your oral tissues (including your head, neck, and jaw area) for confirmation of health and signs of possible oral cancer. Our goal is to identify mouth cancer in the early stages, or before it turns into cancer, when there is a better chance for treatment and cure.
  • Digital X-rays as required
    • Radiography helps us detect cavities in between teeth, assess bone levels, and detect other potential problems in your oral cavity. Your dental surgeon will decide which types of images you need and how often you need them based on your oral health. Research shows that radiation received from digital X-ray machines is less than the radiation you receive from natural background sources. At West Peaks Dental Suite, we follow the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) policy.
  • Sealants (optional)
    • Sealants are protective coatings that are applied on deep grooves of back teeth to prevent cavity formation in the future. Sealant application is a quick, simple, and painless procedure.

How Often Should You Visit Us for an Oral Hygiene and Check Up Visit?

SW Calgary Dental Hygiene | West Peaks Dental Suite | General & Family Dentist | SW Calgary

At West Peaks Dental Suite, we understand that each patient will require a different hygiene and checkup schedule. Most people come in for a dental hygiene appointment every 6 months, although some people may benefit from coming in every 3-4 months, while others may be able to visit every 9-12 months. Genetics, home-care practices, grinding habits, and teeth positioning are all key factors in determining the best schedule for you. For patients experiencing gum disease, heavy staining, loose teeth, or heavy calculus buildup, a higher frequency of cleaning will help keep teeth healthier. West Peaks Dental Suite will discuss with you how often you should visit us for a dental hygiene appointment/cleaning based on your individual needs.

West Peaks Dental Suite is committed to helping your entire family on the road to optimal oral health! If you have any questions about your dental hygiene, or you would like to set up a teeth cleaning and/or checkup appointment, please call us at (403) 281-4264 and our qualified and experienced dental hygienist team will make sure you are taken care of!

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
