Dental Cleaning in Brampton - Gum Disease Treatment

All about dental cleaning

You have to visit the dentist at least every six months for your dental check-up and dental cleaning. The plaque and tartar attached to your teeth harbor bacteria and this causes gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. 

Dental cleaning in Brampton with your family dentist, and proper brushing & flossing at home helps you to keep your gums and teeth healthy.

During the dental cleaning, the teeth are cleaned of the soft and hard debris. The teeth are polished well after the cleaning so that your teeth look shiny and smooth. You will be given specific oral hygiene instructions as to how to maintain the teeth and gums in a healthy state. Preventing gum diseases is our primary goal as gum disease will eventually result in mobility of the teeth, infection of the teeth, and loss of teeth and alveolar bone.

We make sure that you learn the correct technique o clean your teeth and gums. With professional dental cleaning and adequate home care, your teeth and gums will stay healthy.

Polishing your teeth

After the scaling procedure, your teeth will be polished to make sure that the surface is smooth and shiny. Stains that are accumulated on your teeth are removed with this procedure. Your mouth will feel fresh after cleaning and polishing.

Is a dental check up required?

Every time you visit the dentist, it is essential to have the check up done. Your dentist will check your teeth and soft tissues during each visit. 

How is dental cleaning or scaling done?

Dental scaling is done using ultrasonic instruments and hand instruments. A typical procedure involves 45 minutes. This removes the tartar and plaque attached to your teeth. If you already have gum disease, you may need root scaling or root cleaning to keep the area clean and smooth.

Is the procedure painful?

Usually, dental scaling is a very comfortable procedure and is done in a relaxed environment. Some have sensitive gums/teeth and may experience mild sensitivity. In these cases, the tissues are numbed using a gel to make it comfortable for the patient.

What is the cost of scaling?

Most of the insurances cover the cost of scaling and check up. At Polaris Dental, we bill your insurance directly for this procedure.
