  • Remove plaque and calculus (hard deposits) from your teeth and under the gum line

  • Polish the teeth

  • Take radiographs

  • Apply fluoride to prevent tooth decay, help with sensitivity and to fight bacteria

  • Offer support for healthy lifestyle choices in the form of smoking cessation strategies, nutrition counselling, and oral cancer screening

  • Monitor your progress in achieving optimal oral health

Proper home care and regular Dental Hygiene visits are not only important for maintaining good oral health but for the rest of your body! Bleeding and red gums are signs of inflammation which needs to be identified and controlled. Inflammation causes the tissues in our bodies to break down faster and is considered to be the root cause of many diseases. The bacteria that originates in the mouth gets into the bloodstream, then travels and circulates throughout the body. Periodontal disease is linked to conditions like heart disease and diabetes. It can also cause unfavorable complications in pregnancies. Regular visits allow us to check for other illnesses that may show symptoms in your mouth like acid re-flux, sleep apnea and oral cancer. Protect your overall health with proper brushing and flossing habits at home and regular hygiene care at Slave Lake Dental.
