Maintaining Optimal Oral Health

Regular dental cleanings and checkups are essential steps in preserving the overall health of your mouth, encompassing not only your teeth but also your gums and the entirety of your oral cavity, both inside and out. These appointments effectively eliminate plaque, tartar, and bacteria responsible for tooth decay, gum disease, and persistent bad breath. Our skilled hygienists can access those hard-to-reach areas that typical at-home brushing and flossing may miss.

Moreover, a comprehensive cleaning and examination provide our hygienists and dentists with an ideal opportunity to monitor your oral well-being and identify issues that can be addressed or prevented before they escalate into painful and costly concerns. Additionally, routine teeth cleaning can naturally enhance the whiteness and brightness of your teeth, negating the need for bleaching treatments.

Teeth cleanings involve:

  • Plaque Elimination: Ridding your enamel of sticky plaque containing harmful bacteria.
  • Tartar Removal: Safely eliminating hardened plaque that poses a risk of gum disease.
  • Stain Removal: Erasing stains caused by coffee, tea, and other sources for a radiant smile.
  • Dental Health Assessment: Identifying receding gums, chipped or broken teeth, and signs of disease or infection.

What Happens During A Teeth Cleaning?

Gum Health

Undoubtedly vital yet often overlooked, your gums provide essential support to your teeth and shape your beautiful smile. At our practice, we conduct a thorough examination of your tongue, gums, teeth, and all other areas of your mouth, with a particular emphasis on the gum line. Our aim is to ensure the utmost health of your entire oral cavity, free from any signs of inflammation or impending gum disease. Rest assured, we’re here to support your oral care journey without being too harsh on your flossing habits.

Plaque & Tartar Removal

Plaque, a soft and sticky film, accumulates on your teeth and demands routine cleaning through diligent brushing, flossing, and professional care. Left unchecked, plaque hardens into tartar deposits, often manifesting as darker spots in challenging-to-reach spots like the gumline. Our expert hygienists possess the tools and expertise to delicately remove stubborn plaque and tartar from these less accessible areas. With these issues addressed, we can then proceed to polish your teeth, effectively eliminating stains and leaving your smile brilliantly refreshed.

Dentist Exam

Following the meticulous cleaning of your teeth, it’s the perfect moment for a comprehensive dental examination. Your dentist will meticulously review your charts and x-rays, focusing on any problematic areas or recurring patterns. Based on their findings, your dentist may recommend additional treatments or provide invaluable guidance on how to mitigate or reverse issues like tooth decay, inflammation, or gum disease. We welcome your questions and value your feedback, so don’t hesitate to share any discomfort, sensitivity, or dental concerns you may have experienced. Your dental health is our top priority.

Teeth Cleaning Costs in Ajax

Regular dental checkups and cleanings are a highly effective method for preventing dental issues, and many insurance providers often offer comprehensive coverage for these routine procedures, typically scheduled every 6 months. However, if you don’t have dental insurance, you can anticipate costs ranging from $120 to $300 and beyond, particularly if it’s your initial visit or your first cleaning in an extended period.

The actual cost of your treatment is influenced by several key factors:
  • Your current oral health.
  • The necessity for any new x-rays.
  • The duration of time our dental team devotes to meeting your specific requirements.
  • The equipment and supplies essential to address all your dental needs.

At our practice, we prioritize these routine appointments as they serve as a highly effective means to proactively prevent more invasive treatments, avert the onset of significant dental discomfort, and ensure your continued well-being and satisfaction. Your dental health is of utmost importance to us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Act promptly! If you’re experiencing any oral pain or discomfort, don’t hesitate to reach out to us immediately. While cleanings offer an excellent chance for preventive care, they are by no means the sole occasion to address any concerns. Even if your issue appears minor, inform us without delay so that we can address it while it’s still in its early stages. Your proactive communication ensures we can tackle any concerns effectively, preventing them from escalating into more significant problems.

Our typical recommendation is to schedule teeth cleaning and checkup appointments every six months. However, in certain cases, the dentist may advise more frequent visits to address specific needs, or we may extend appointment intervals if it’s necessary due to insurance or cost considerations. Your oral health remains our primary concern, and we tailor our recommendations accordingly to ensure your well-being and budget are taken into account.

Certainly! Our checkups encompass a comprehensive assessment of your entire oral cavity, including your gums, tongue, bones, and more. Even if you wear dentures, we encourage you to visit us to ensure your dentures are in optimal condition, fit correctly, and to evaluate the overall health of your mouth. Your oral well-being is our priority, and our examinations are designed to address all aspects of your oral health, regardless of your dental prosthetics.

Opt for fluoride-enriched tartar-control toothpaste. While effective toothbrushing is crucial, the only way to eliminate plaque between your teeth and prevent tartar buildup in those inaccessible spaces is by using dental floss regularly. Additionally, incorporate daily rinsing into your routine and consider using an antiseptic mouthwash to combat the bacteria responsible for plaque formation.

Typically, dental cleanings take approximately 30 minutes to an hour on average and are conducted while you recline comfortably in a dental chair.

Sustaining a routine of brushing and flossing your teeth after a professional cleaning is the most effective approach to uphold the results of your dentist’s efforts!

After a standard dental cleaning, it’s generally fine to eat, but it’s advisable to steer clear of acidic or abrasive foods and drinks. However, if you’ve had a fluoride treatment as part of your cleaning, it’s recommended to wait at least 30 minutes before consuming anything.
