Maintain Your Oral Health

Routine teeth cleanings and checkups are crucial for preserving not just your teeth but your gums and overall oral health. These cleanings remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria that can lead to decay, gum disease, and chronic bad breath. Our hygienists can reach areas that are difficult to clean with regular brushing and flossing, allowing for a thorough cleaning and examination that helps identify and resolve potential issues before they become serious.

Regular teeth cleanings also naturally enhance the whiteness and brightness of your teeth without the need for bleaching treatments.

  • Eliminates Plaque: Removes the sticky substance containing bacteria that can erode enamel.
  • Removes Tartar: Clears away hardened plaque that can lead to gum disease.
  • Brightens Teeth: Removes stains from coffee, tea, and other sources.
  • Monitors Oral Health: Checks for receding gums, chipped or broken teeth, and signs of disease or infection.

What Happens During a Teeth Cleaning?

Gum Health Examination

We examine your tongue, gums, teeth, and other areas of your mouth, with a focus on the gum line to ensure there are no signs of inflammation or gum disease. We’ll provide gentle advice on improving your flossing habits without being too harsh.

Plaque and Tartar Removal

Plaque is a soft film that can harden into tartar if not removed through thorough brushing, flossing, and professional cleaning. Our hygienists use specialized tools to carefully remove plaque and tartar, especially from hard-to-reach areas. Finally, we polish your teeth to remove stains and leave them gleaming.

Dentist Examination

After cleaning, Dr. Rehan Merchant will review your chart and x-rays, focusing on any problem areas. The dentist might recommend further treatment or provide tips on slowing or reversing tooth decay, inflammation, or gum disease. We’re here to answer any questions you have and address any discomfort or sensitivity.

Cost of Teeth Cleaning in Leduc

Routine checkups and cleanings are an excellent preventive measure, often covered significantly by insurance. Typically, with insurance, these appointments are recommended every six months. Without insurance, the cost can range from $120 to $300 or more, depending on factors such as:

  • Current oral health status
  • Need for new x-rays
  • Time required for the procedure
  • Equipment and supplies used

Regular cleanings are vital to prevent more invasive treatments, serious dental pain, and to maintain overall health.
