Professional Oral Hygiene in Scarborough, ON

In the last century, the goal of dental care has shifted from seeking responsive treatment when dental damage occurs to being focused around preventive dentistry. Preventive dental care has increased the likelihood that patients will keep their healthy, natural teeth for life, and White Willow Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is dedicated to helping patients achieve this goal. In combination with regular at-home hygiene, twice a year dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings help patients achieve their healthiest smiles.

Teeth Cleanings

Our team recommends that patients attend a professional teeth cleaning appointment as part of every six month checkup. In keeping with recommendations from the Canadian Dental Association (CDA), these twice a year visits make it possible for people to prevent the vast majority of oral health issues, and diagnose and treat others in their earliest stages. During a dental cleaning, our hygienists remove built up plaque or tartar that has accumulated since the last appointment, examine gums to ensure they are healthy, recommend changes to at home hygiene to improve overall oral health, and provide dental sealants or fluoride treatments to protect and fortify smiles when necessary. Typically one of the last things we do before patients leave their checkup, a dental cleaning includes plaque and tartar removal, flossing, and paste application.

Oral Hygiene Between Dental Checkups

As dental practitioners, one of our most important tasks is to offer patients education concerning best practices in oral hygiene. We only have the chance to clean your teeth twice a year, so it’s essential that you know how to do so effectively every day. A few simple rules to follow in your at-home hygiene routine to ensure best results include:
