Preventing the onset of dental problems starts with good oral hygiene; healthy teeth and gums are the cornerstone of a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile. An effective preventive dental practice and oral hygiene practice is a collective effort by the patient and their dental team. While regular home maintenance is important, it only focuses on areas of the teeth that are above the gum line (called scaling). A professional cleaning can clean your teeth not only above the gum line, but below the gum line as well (called root planing). It is only through regular scaling and root planing that plaque, tartar, and bacteria can effectively be removed from hard to reach places below the gum line that home care cannot reach. Good oral hygiene by the patient that is continued by regular dental visits can effectively promote and maintain your oral health, catching plaque and cavities early on before they pose more harm and create more damage to your beautiful smile. Redstone Smiles Dental is pleased to offer professional dental exams and teeth cleaning to help you achieve optimal oral health.

in addition to cleaning your teeth above and below the gum line, your professional hygiene appointment will include

  • A complete periodontal assessment
  • A complete check of your gum tissue, checking for any gum recession, the presence of gingivitis and possible gum disease
  • Polishing your teeth to remove any surface stains
  • Fluoride treatment (if chosen) to help prevent cavities from forming, and to help strengthen the surface of your enamel in areas that may be weak
  • A digital x-ray (when required)
  • An oral cancer screening and exam at least once a year to check the head, neck, and jaw are for information of health and any signs of oral cancer.

Oral Cancer Screenings

NE Calgary Dental Hygiene | Oral Cancel Screening | Redstone Smiles Dental | General and Family Dentist | NE Calgary Dentist

Studies report that the survival rate for oral cancer is 80-90% if it is detected early. With an oral cancer screening, the dentist will have you undergo 5 laps of oral screening. Usually, oral cancer screenings are recommended to all patients over 40 years of age or those who conform to common risk factors such as heavy sun exposure, tobacco use, or infection with HPV.

We perform oral cancer screenings as part of our general dental care to every patient. That is because these screenings can detect early signs of oral cancer before lesions become visible. Oral cancer is a serious matter, so if you have observed a lump, bump, crack, or any other concerning area in or on your mouth and oral cavity, we urge you to call us as soon as possible and set up an exam.

How Often Should you Visit Us for an Oral Hygiene and Check Up Visit?

When it comes to your oral hygiene and checkup schedule, it is important to remember that every patient is different and will require a different schedule. For most people, once every six months or so is sufficient. Others may benefit from coming in every 3 to 4 months, while others still might only need to come in every 9 months or even every 12 months.

The Redstone Smiles Dental Team knows that how often you visit the dentist depends on many factors, such as whether or not you have crowded teeth, fillings, or missing teeth, which can lead to an increase in plaque buildup requiring more frequent visits than someone who does not experience these problems regularly.

Redstone Smiles Dental is committed to helping you and your family on the road to optimal oral health.
