Dental Hygiene & Cleanings Scarborough

Achieving a healthy smile through dental hygiene at Brimley Dental Centre in Scarborough

Regular professional teeth cleaning removes plaque & tartar buildup, preventing tooth decay & gum disease, even with regular brushing & flossing.

Why Professional Teeth Cleaning is Necessary

When you come in for your dental hygiene appointment, our skilled and knowledgeable dental hygienists will perform a thorough assessment of your oral health. This assessment includes looking at your soft tissues for signs of health and/or disease, taking measurements of the attachment levels of your gums to help determine the degree of gum disease present in your mouth, removal of soft and hard deposits from your teeth, as well as providing you with recommendations based on your individual needs.

Our hygienists at our Brimley Dental Centre in Scarborough spend a significant amount of time with each patient, and they work closely with both you and our dentists to develop the best treatment plan for you over the long term. We understand that each patient's needs are unique, and we are committed to providing personalized care that is tailored to your individual needs.

Importance of Professional Teeth Cleaning

Even if you brush and floss after every meal and before bed, bacteria-harbouring plaque can accumulate in the tiny crevices, grooves and pits. Over time, the teeth will begin to decay in those areas, which may result in pain and partial or total tooth loss. That's why it's so important to have your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Our dental hygienists use advanced techniques to remove plaque and tartar buildup that you can't remove at home, helping to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Plaque and Its Impact on Oral Health

Plaque is the sticky, colorless film that constantly forms on your teeth. Bacteria live in plaque and secrete acids that cause tooth decay and irritate gum tissue. This irritation causes an inflammatory reaction by your body that can eventually lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease. If plaque is not removed regularly by tooth brushing and flossing, it hardens to create calculus (also known as tartar). Calculus cannot be removed with a toothbrush; only a dental professional can remove it during an oral cleaning. To keep plaque and calculus under control, it is essential to brush your teeth twice every day, floss at least once every day, and see your dental professional for regular cleanings.
