Cleaning in Ottawa
Brushing and flossing every day are critical to having a healthy smile, but it’s just as important to schedule dental exams at a regular interval. As each patient is different, your dentist will evaluate your oral health and custom tailor a schedule specific to your needs.
What to expect at a dental cleaning appointment?
A physical exam is carried out to check for gingivitis, inflammation, tenderness, bleeding or any other potential concerns. A scaler is used to remove plaque and tartar that may have accumulated on the teeth around the gums. The more build-up there is, the longer it takes to remove.
A high-powered electric brush is used to together with a gritty textured toothpaste to gently polish the teeth. This will remove left over plaque and tartar that might have been missed during scaling. Expert flossing and Rinsing is done to remove any leftover plaque, debris or paste from previous processes. A fluoride treatment is applied as part of a cleaning process to strengthen enamel and protect your teeth from cavities.
