Regular Dental hygiene cleanings are critically important to keeping your gums and teeth in great condition. During each dental cleaning appointment with Slave Lake Dental we will polish the teeth to remove plaque deposits and then scale the teeth to remove tartar and hard deposits found under the gum line. Our wonderful dental hygienists will then perform a thorough cleaning to remove stains. They will also provide you with individualized instructions on how to properly care for your teeth and gums at home between dental cleanings.

 

Proper home care and regular dental hygiene cleanings are not only important for maintaining good oral health but also for the health of the rest of your body! Periodontal disease is linked to other conditions in the body like heart disease and diabetes. Periodontal disease can also cause unfavorable complications in pregnancies. Gum disease allows bacteria that originates in the mouth to access your bloodstream. These bacteria can then travel and circulate throughout the body. Regular cleanings also allows us to check for other illnesses that may show symptoms only your dentist may check for such as signs of osteoporosis, 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.
