Maintain Oral Health With Our Dental Cleanings & Exams in Rosewood
Patients young and old should all come in for routine dental appointments. Though this treatment is straightforward and can be done in about an hour, it helps maintain the strength and beauty of your smile by clearing away the debris left by food and drink, and bacteria.
We invite you to visit our neighborhood dental practice if you’re looking to have your teeth and gums cleaned. Our staff also caters to the surrounding communities of Lakewood and Rosewood. For more information, contact our dentist near you.
The Processes Involved
A dental hygienist will come and greet you, then show you to a chair. Once you’re comfortable, they’ll get started with your exam. This entails reviewing your medical/dental history, taking a series of x-rays (if necessary), and visually evaluating your smile, checking for any indications of tooth decay, gingivitis, or oral cancer.
The entire exam only lasts 5-10 minutes or so; they’ll get started with the cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis, after.
First up, is the scaling. Plaque and tartar are removed from the surface of your teeth and along your gum line. Second, the hygienist will polish your smile to a beautiful shine with a special, gritty toothpaste. They’ll floss for you as well, to clear away any lingering debris that may be lingering on your smile. It’s okay if your gums bleed slightly but do keep in mind that this means you need to floss more often. Last, is the fluoride treatment. Depending on the clinic, the fluoride will come as a foam, paintable varnish, or a liquid you swish. It’ll sit on your smile for 1 minute; then you can spit and rinse.
Your dentist in Saskatoon will pop by to see you throughout the appointment to supervise the treatment and see how you’re fairing. If you have questions at all, do let them know!
Before you leave the clinic, the staff will assist you in setting up a follow-up checking up and cleaning 6 months later. And that’s it! You’ll be able to get on with the rest of your day!
