How We Address Your Dental Hygiene at Our Calgary Office

While teeth cleanings are important, our dentists recognize the importance of taking care of your overall dental hygiene. Calgary patients can turn to our office for comprehensive dental exams, which include X-ray examinations, oral cancer screening, and check-ups on dental procedures that have already been performed. Our registered dental hygienists perform teeth cleanings in our Calgary dental office. Our cleanings consist of removing harmful tartar on your teeth, polishing to remove stains and dental plaque, as well as fluoride treatment.

We also provide our patients with personal instruction on teeth cleaning techniques, oral care, as well as supply you with tools, such as brushes, floss, and mouthwash, according to your specific needs, so you can keep your teeth clean between visits.

Why Are Routine Dental X-Rays Necessary?

Your dental hygiene extends beneath the surface of your teeth and gums as not every oral health problem can be seen by the naked eye. With a dental X-ray, our dentists can detect hidden irregularities and create and effective treatment plan as a result. Problems a dental X-ray can pick up on include cysts or abscesses, poor tooth and root positions, bone loss, and more. Routine dental X-rays are necessary because if some of these problems go undetected they can very easily turn into a more serious dental health problem. Early detection can spare you unnecessary discomfort and pain that accompanies poor dental health.

Abougoush Family Dental Care offers Sirona digital X-rays, which use electric sensors to capture the digital image of your teeth for immediate viewing, reducing your wait time. For new patients, along with our teeth cleaning service, and dental exam, we recommend a full-mouth digital CAT scan to familiarize our dentists and hygienists with your unique set of teeth. We also take Bite-Wing X-rays of your top and bottom teeth during routine teeth cleaning check-ups to detect and treat any new dental problems that may have arisen.

What Are the Benefits of Fluoride Treatment during Teeth Cleaning?

Fluoride treatments benefits are numerous. It can harden tooth enamel, prevent tooth decay, and prevent other issues by making your teeth resistant to plaque bacteria and sugars. In some cases it can reduce early signs of decay. Our staff at Abougoush Family Dental Care recommends fluoride application during regular teeth cleaning procedures and exams to maintain tooth strength.

How Do Sealants Protect Teeth From Cavities?

During your teeth cleaning, you may want to consider applying a dental sealant. Dental sealants are thin coatings applied to your teeth to create smoother tooth surfaces, rendering them much easier to clean. Dental sealant procedures are fairly quick and be accomplished in one dental visit. We recommend that sealants be applied any time during the cavity-prone years of 6 to 16 in order to prevent the potential for future tooth decay and pain. You can ask about dental sealants for your children the next time you visit our Calgary office for your teeth cleaning.
