The health of your mouth is important in your overall health!

The health of your mouth is actually linked to your overall, general health.

So coming in for regular dental hygiene treatments, or "cleanings," not only help improve the health of your mouth -- but also your overall health too.

Visits to the dentist to have your teeth cleaned regularly, provides a level of prevention in addition to regular brushing and flossing, that will ensure your teeth are healthy and strong. Dental hygienists are licensed dental professionals who makes sure your teeth are in good shape, plaque and decay-free, and that even your gums and areas of your mouth that support your teeth - are healthy and there is no sign of periodontal disease.

Our hygienists always check for oral cancer and assess your entire mouth to ensure no early signs of disease are present. When caught early, they are much easier to treat and eliminate.

At Victoriapark Dental, hygienists perform dental cleanings for the healthy maintenance of your teeth, as well as look to improve the health of your gums. We also can help to keep patients informed about the importance of home care, habits and behaviours that ensure continued dental health, as well as treat any periodontal disease.

Professional dental cleanings

Dental cleaning helps to get rid of any plaque build-up around and under your gums that happens even with regular brushing and flossing. This will reduce any inflammation or bleeding gums which may be caused by bacteria.

Without regular hygiene appointments, the bacteria in plaque and tartar can overdevelop, causing periodontal disease. Periodontal disease usually begins with swollen and bleeding gums that progresses into periodontitis. Periodontitis is the loss of bone from bacteria that eats away at the supporting areas of your teeth and under gums. This decay leads to foul breath, poor function and gradually can lead to tooth loss.

Your mouth is essential for day-to-day living, especially for activities we might sometimes take for granted, such as eating and speaking. Regular dental cleanings will help keep your mouth healthy, and continue to help ensure proper functioning for years to come.

A dental hygiene appointment normally includes:

  • Dental hygiene assessment
  • Plaque and tartar removal
  • Polishing and stain removal
