Take Care Of Your Teeth

Routine dental cleanings and checkups are essential for maintaining overall oral health, not just for your teeth, but also for your gums and the entire mouth. These cleanings effectively remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria, which are responsible for tooth decay, gum disease, and persistent bad breath.

Dental hygienists can access hard-to-reach areas that regular home brushing and flossing might miss. These comprehensive cleanings and examinations allow both the hygienist and dentist to closely monitor your oral health, identifying and addressing potential issues early, thereby preventing painful and costly problems. Additionally, regular cleanings naturally enhance the whiteness and brightness of your teeth without the need for bleaching treatments.

They eliminate plaque, a bacteria-laden substance that erodes enamel, remove tartar build-up that can lead to gum disease, eradicate stains from coffee, tea, or other sources, and help in detecting signs of receding gums, chipped or broken teeth, and other indicators of disease and infection.

What Happens During A Teeth Cleaning?

Gum Health

Extremely crucial and frequently overlooked, your gums play a vital role in supporting your teeth and shaping your smile. We’ll meticulously examine your tongue, gums, teeth, and all other parts of your mouth, with a particular emphasis on the gum line. Our goal is to ensure the overall health of your mouth and to detect any early signs of inflammation or potential gum disease. Rest assured, we’ll be understanding and not overly critical about your flossing habits.

Plaque And Tartar Removal

Plaque, a soft and sticky substance, accumulates on your teeth over time. Without regular removal through detailed brushing, flossing, and professional cleaning, it can transform into tartar, a substance often darker and typically located in challenging areas such as the gumline. A dental hygienist is equipped with the necessary tools and expertise to meticulously remove plaque and tartar, especially from those difficult-to-access spots. Once this is done, we can then proceed to polish your teeth, eliminating stains and giving them a bright, shining appearance.

Dentist Exam

Once your teeth have been cleaned, it’s the ideal moment for a dental examination. Your dentist will review your dental records and x-rays, focusing on any areas of concern or emerging issues. Based on this examination, they might suggest additional treatments or offer guidance on how to mitigate or reverse issues like tooth decay, inflammation, or gum disease. We are always ready to address any queries you might have or discuss any discomfort, sensitivity, or dental pain you’ve been experiencing.

Cost of Teeth Cleaning in Markham

Routine checkups and cleanings are such a great way to prevent and avoid dental problems that most insurance companies will nearly completely cover them on a routine basis. Usually every 6 months. If you are without dental insurance, you can expect to pay anywhere from $100 to $300 and up, especially if it’s your first visit or first cleaning in a long time.

When we determine the actual cost of your treatment we refer to a few important factors:

  • Your current oral health.
  • Whether or not any new x-rays are required.
  • The amount of time required by the dental team to meet your specific needs.
  • The equipment and supplies that will be needed to serve all your needs.

These routine appointments are very important to us, as we see them as the most effective way to prevent more invasive treatments, prevent serious dental pain and keep you as happy and healthy as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Typically, we advise scheduling a teeth cleaning and checkup every 6 months. However, depending on your individual dental needs, the dentist might suggest more frequent appointments. Additionally, if there are insurance or cost constraints, we can arrange visits at longer intervals if absolutely essential.

Act immediately! If you’re experiencing any pain or discomfort in your mouth, don’t hesitate to contact us. While cleanings are a great chance to prevent dental issues, they’re not the only occasion to address them. No matter how small the issue may seem, inform us as soon as possible so we can address it early on.

Certainly. Dental checkups encompass the entire mouth, including gums, tongue, bones, and everything in between. Even if you have dentures, it’s important for us to see you. We’ll check to make sure your dentures are in proper condition, fit well, and also assess the overall health of your mouth and oral hygiene.

Around 30 minutes is usual.

Opt for a tartar-control toothpaste containing fluoride. While brushing thoroughly is important, dental floss remains essential for removing plaque from between your teeth and preventing tartar in those hard-to-clean areas. Additionally, make it a habit to rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash every day to eliminate bacteria that lead to plaque formation.

Persisting with regular brushing and flossing after your dental cleaning is the most effective method to preserve the results achieved by your dentist.
