Embracing Health & Beautiful Smiles For The Whole Family!

We Want To Be Your Choice for Dental Hygiene, Teeth Cleanings and Checkups in Airdrie!

Why are Regular Teeth Cleanings & Checkups Important?

Healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a healthy and beautiful smile. Regular teeth cleanings & checkups by your dentist are an important step in preventative oral health care. Grace Family Dental is dedicated to helping you maintain your gums and overall dental health, and that is why we are pleased to offer regular teeth cleanings and checkups.

Routine home maintenance, while very effective, only focuses on areas of the tooth that are above the gum. A professional cleaning will be able to clean your teeth above the gum line, which is known as scaling but also below the gum line, which is known as root planing. It is only through regular scaling and root planing procedures that remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria toxins from those hard to reach areas below the gum line that we can keep your gums healthy from top to bottom!

Our Dental Team uses traditional hand scalers and ultrasonic scaling tools to remove stubborn deposits and tartar (known as calculus). The goal of regular dental hygiene appointments is to prevent gum disease. Gum Disease is often pain-free but can ultimately result in premature tooth loss and lead to other health issues if left unattended.

What Happens at A Dental Hygiene Appointment?

As well as cleaning your teeth above and below the gum-line, our Dental Team will perform a number of important oral health checks at your hygiene appointment, including:

  • a complete periodontal assessment
  • checking for any gum recession
  • checking for the presence of gingivitis
  • polishing your teeth to remove any surface stain
  • fluoride treatment (if chosen) to help prevent cavities from forming and harden enamel in areas that may be weak
  • an oral cancer screening and exam at least once a year to check the head, neck and jaw areas for confirmation of health
  • an intra-oral exam to check the gum tissues, tongue, and lips for confirmation of health
  • digital x-rays (when needed)

How Often Should You Visit Us for A Teeth Cleaning &Checkup?

How often you need to visit Grace Family Dental for teeth cleaning & Check Up visit depends on several factors. Are your teeth susceptible to excess accumulation of plaque and calculus? Do you have crowded teeth, fillings, or missing teeth? These are all cases that can lead to increased plaque buildup and require more frequent visits.

Our dental team knows that each patient will require a different dental hygiene schedule. While most people come in for dental hygiene appointments every six months, some people may benefit by coming in every 3-4 months, while others might only require a hygiene appointment every nine or even every 12 months. Our dedicated dental team will discuss with you how often you should have a dental cleaning based on your specific individual needs.
