Professional Teeth Cleaning in Toronto

Teeth cleaning in professional terms is referred to as prophylaxis, but you likely don’t hear dentists or hygienists throw that word around very often at the dental offices you have been to. You are more likely to have heard terms such as deep cleaning or routine cleaning. These refer to the same thing and deliver what all dental patients want – clean and healthy teeth and gums.

The Importance of Professional Teeth Cleanings

  • Professional cleanings or deep cleaning procedures are important for removing tartar buildup, plaque buildup, and surface stains that you can’t remove with your everyday toothbrush.
  • What’s more, professional teeth cleaning services will lower the risk of gum disease.
  • In fact, gum disease is preventable by getting routine professional cleanings two to four times per year, depending on your dental hygienist’s recommendation.

What Does a Deep Cleaning Procedure Entail?

During a deep cleaning at the Little Green Building, our dental hygienist does scaling, polishing, and restorations, if needed. An oral cancer screening can also be done from time to time. Our hygienist will also provide helpful knowledge on oral health issues so that you can maximize your brushing and flossing efforts. They may also explain treatments and even offer nutritional tips and other preventive measures.

In general, a teeth cleaning should be a quick and painless routine procedure aimed at maintaining oral hygiene by removing plaque, tartar (calculus), and stains from the surfaces of the teeth. The procedure includes scaling to remove plaque and tartar, polishing to remove stains and smooth the enamel and may include fluoride treatments to strengthen the teeth and prevent cavities. Regular dental cleanings are crucial for preventing dental diseases and maintaining overall oral health. 

Our Deep Cleaning Process: How It’s Done

Ready for a teeth cleaning appointment at the Little Green Building? Here’s what to expect:

  1. Initial Consultation – If you are looking for some high-quality dental cleaning, book an appointment.
  2. Supragingival cleaning When you show up for your appointment, cleaning starts with scaling tools. These specialized tools are used to clean the area above the gum line to remove plaque and calculus.
  3. Subgingival cleaning – This step removes calculus beneath the gum line and gum pockets. Subgingival cleaning is vital for periodontal disease patients.
  4. Root planing – Smoothing of the tooth root is done to remove any remaining bacteria.
  5. Medication – At this point in the treatment, an antimicrobial or antibiotic cream is applied to gum pockets to heal and reduce discomfort in the pockets.
  6. X-rays – Our skilled hygienists may perform routine X-rays to bring light to periodontal disease. The x-rays show any bone and gum recession.
  7. Insurance Billing. Cost of Dental Cleaning: We accept insurance from most dental insurance plan providers. Call 416-769-8135 for more info on dental insurance plans for dental cleaning and related information like teeth cleaning costs.

Typical deep cleaning procedures at our dental clinic follow the above steps. However, we may recommend additional dental treatments if needed i.e. in cases of dental decay or other dental issues requiring treatment.

Our patients also get information on good flossing techniques and flossing habits. You’ll also get proper brushing tips, when to book your next dental visit, and other information to help you keep your smile healthy.

Why Seek Professional Teeth Cleaning at Our Toronto Clinic?

Removal of Plaque and Tartar with Deep Cleaning

If you brush and floss regularly but don’t seek deep cleaning services, you are bound to experience a buildup of plaque and tartar above and below the gum line. This may take time, but it is inevitable in the absence of professional cleaning.

It doesn’t matter if you have the best electric brush on the market or floss just like a hygienist does. Removing all bacteria and food particles or deposits from deep periodontal gum pockets is impossible with everyday dental care.

Specialized dental equipment is required to identify and remove the tough-to-reach plaque and tartar accumulation known to cause serious periodontal issues over time.

Identifying Various Health Issues

You wouldn’t realize it, but in addition to potential mouth-related problems, a wide array of health issues including diabetes and kidney concerns are first identified by dentists setting the stage for additional treatment.

Advice can be offered to improve a patient’s home care routine to help minimize the risk of various medical conditions.

Improving Bad Breath

Bad breath is often the result of periodontal issues setting in, such as a gum infection, and tiny rotting food pieces hiding below the gum line. Removing bacteria, calculus, and plaque helps to greatly improve the issue and alleviate other problems like irritation.

Pain-free Dental Cleaning Services

Our deep teeth cleanings are as gentle as possible. The Little Green Building offers the most comfortable and relaxed teeth cleaning service in Toronto. The periodontal exam is done with little to no discomfort or mouth pain.

When you have yellow teeth or teeth with build-up stains, dental plaque, and tartar, it’s not too motivating to smile big for pictures, or in your daily life.

A dental cleaning from a hygienist can effectively remove all of the impurities, reveal your beautiful white teeth, and provide you with a brighter smile, so that you can feel confident again.
