Dental Hygiene Burnaby | Dawson Dental Centre | General & Family Dentist

Healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile! That is why Dawson Dental Centre is pleased to offer dental hygiene appointments to help you achieve the optimal oral health you deserve. While regular home care is very important, it only focuses on areas of the teeth above the gum line (called scaling). A professional dental cleaning cleans your teeth not only above the gum line, but also the area below the gum (called root planing) that you cannot reach at home. It is only through regular root planing and scaling that tartar, plaque, and bacteria can be fully removed from hard-to-reach areas below the gumline. Regular professional cleanings can help keep your teeth and gums healthy from top to bottom! Let Dawson Dental Centre help you achieve optimal oral health and wellness with regular dental hygiene and teeth cleaning appointments!

What Happens at a Dental Hygiene and Teeth Cleaning Appointment?

  • A complete periodontal assessment
  • A complete check of your gum tissue, including checking for any gum recession, the presence of gingivitis, and possible gum disease
  • An intra-oral exam to check the gum tissue, lips, and tongue for confirmation of health
  • Scaling, which removes plaque, tartar (calculus,) and bacteria from your teeth so your gums and bone that make up the foundation of your teeth remain healthy and disease-free
  • Polishing to remove stains from your teeth

  • Fluoride treatment (if chosen)
    After your dental cleaning, you will be provided with the option to receive fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen the enamel (outer layer of your teeth) and helps to prevent cavities from forming.
  • Digital X-rays when required
    Radiography helps your Burnaby dentist detect cavities in between teeth, assess bone levels, and detect other possible problems within the oral cavity. Your dentist will decide what type of images are needed and how often you need them based on your oral health examination.
    Research shows that radiation received from digital X-ray machines is less than the radiation you receive from naturally occurring background sources. Dawson Dental Centre makes sure to follow the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) policy.
  • Sealants (if chosen)
    Sealants are protective coatings that are applied on the deep grooves of back teeth to prevent cavity formation in the future. Applying sealants is a quick, simple, painless procedure.

How Often Should You Visit Us for a Dental Hygiene Visit?

Dawson Dental Centre | General & Family Dentist Burnaby BC

Dawson Dental Centre understands that each patient will require a different hygiene and cleaning schedule based on their specific needs. Most people come in for a Burnaby dental hygiene appointment every 6 months, although some people may benefit from coming in every 3-4 months, while others may be able to visit every 9-12 months. Genetics, level of care at home, grinding habits, and teeth positioning are all key factors in determining the best oral hygiene and teeth cleaning schedule for each patient. For those experiencing gum disease, heavy staining, loose teeth, or heavy calculus buildup, a higher frequency of cleaning will help keep teeth healthier. Our team will discuss with you how often you should visit us for a dental hygiene cleaning or check-up based on your specific and individual needs.
