Why Are Regular Teeth Cleanings and Dental Hygiene Appointments Important?

Teeth Cleaning Checkups | Health Plus Dental

Your dental hygiene is important for your overall dental health and wellness. At Health Plus Dental Centre, we typically recommend regular teeth cleanings every six months, or as often as needed or recommended by your dentist based on your specific dental needs.

How often you require cleanings depends on several factors, including how susceptible your teeth are to the accumulation of plaque and calcium, how crowded your teeth are, and whether or not you have gum disease.

When you visit us as a patient, our dental team and dentist will determine how often you require a dental checkup and teeth cleaning based on your specific needs and circumstances. We will come up with a personalized and custom dental hygiene schedule that meets your needs and oral health goals.

What is included in your regular visit?

  • A thorough periodontal exam, checking for gum recession, gingivitis and possible gum disease
  • Polishing your teeth to remove surface stains and plaque buildup
  • Fluoride treatment
  • An extra-oral exam at least once a year to check the head, neck and jaw areas for abnormalities
  • An oral cancer screening, with the use of the Velscope, to check the gum tissues, tongue, and band lips for signs of oral cancer.
  • Digital diagnostic x-rays when needed

If you are a new patient to our practice, we welcome all new patients! Simply call us today to book your teeth cleaning and dental hygiene appointment. We look forward to being your family dentist.
