Taking Care Of Your Teeth

Undergoing routine dental cleanings and checkups is critical for preserving the health of not just your teeth but also your gums and the entire mouth. These procedures help remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria that are the primary causes of decay, gum disease, and chronic bad breath.

Hygienists are skilled in cleaning areas that are difficult to reach through regular at-home oral hygiene practices. Comprehensive cleanings and exams are key opportunities for dental professionals to monitor and maintain your oral health, identifying and potentially averting serious, costly dental issues. In addition to health benefits, regular dental cleanings contribute to the natural whitening and brightening of your teeth, eliminating the need for artificial bleaching.

These cleanings are important for removing plaque, which erodes enamel, and tartar which can lead to gum disease. They also help remove stains and check for signs of receding gums, broken teeth, and other oral health issues.

What Goes On In A Cleaning?

Your Gum Health

Your gums are incredibly important yet often don’t get the recognition they deserve. They are the foundation for your teeth and play a big part in your smile’s appearance. We will conduct an in-depth examination of your tongue, gums, teeth, and every other section of your mouth, focusing particularly on the gum line. This is to guarantee that your entire mouth is in the best possible health, free from inflammation or signs of potential gum disease. Also, we promise to be understanding and not too stern about your flossing habits.

Plaque And Tartar Control

Plaque, a sticky and soft film, frequently gathers on teeth and, unless regularly cleared away with detailed brushing, flossing, and professional dental care, can solidify into tartar. Tartar, which is usually of a darker shade, often accumulates in areas that are tough to clean, such as the gumline. A skilled hygienist can expertly scale away this adhered plaque and tartar, especially from those hard-to-reach places. Following this, we will polish your teeth to strip away any stains, leaving them radiantly clean and shiny.

Dental Examination

It’s highly recommended to have a dentist examine your teeth right after they are cleaned. In this examination, the dentist will assess your dental history and x-rays, concentrating on any areas that may pose problems or indicate a pattern of issues. They may advise further treatment or provide tips on managing or reversing dental problems such as tooth decay, inflammation, or gum disease. We are here to address any queries or concerns you may have, including any discomfort, sensitivity, or pain you have experienced in your dental health.

Cost Of Teeth Cleaning In Innisfil

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 $120 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

Normally, we recommend teeth cleanings and checkups every six months. However, the dentist may suggest you come in more often if you have particular dental needs. If there are significant insurance or cost considerations, we can also plan for less frequent visits, spacing them out more if it’s absolutely required.

Take swift action! If you’re experiencing mouth pain or discomfort, get in touch with us right away. While cleanings are a preventive step, you should not wait until then to discuss dental problems. Even small issues are important to report immediately, allowing us to remedy them while they’re still minor.

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.

30 minutes is the average length of time for a cleaning

Pick a toothpaste that not only controls tartar but also contains fluoride. Despite being diligent with a toothbrush, the only method to thoroughly remove plaque from between your teeth and prevent tartar in hard-to-reach spots is to floss regularly. Furthermore, rinse every day with an antiseptic mouthwash to eradicate bacteria that lead to plaque buildup.

Maintaining your dentist’s work on your teeth is best achieved by continuing to brush and floss regularly after your dental cleaning.
