Dental hygiene and scaling appointments are the best way to maintain your oral health and ensure a bright and beautiful smile.
Our dental team at Humewood Dental on St. Clair West provides professional dental care to deep clean your teeth and a comprehensive check-up at every appointment to look out for any signs of oral diseases and oral cancer.
Everyone experiences some form of plaque buildup. The saliva, bacteria, and proteins in your mouth form a thin layer that covers your teeth at almost all times. When you eat, tiny particles, acids and sugars from the food stick to this film, creating a buildup on the teeth known as plaque. Bacteria in plaques can cause gum disease and tooth decay. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings will help remove plaque and prevent more serious problems.
Why are dental hygiene appointments important?
A typical appointment will consist of our hygienist scaling your teeth and cleaning any plaque, tartar, or other debris that may be present around your teeth and gums. You should come in for a cleaning every 6 months, but we may recommend more frequent visits depending on the condition of your oral health.
Regular professional dental cleanings have many great benefits, including:
- Prevent gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental conditions
- Deep clean areas where regular brushing and flossing may not be able to reach
- Improve your sense of taste
- Freshen up your breath
