Dental Cleaning

Dental hygiene forms an integral part of daily living. Keeping your teeth clean should be a no-brainer. Yet, it is surprizing how many people skimp over this extremely important habit. Dental hygiene is vital for maintaining your overall health and it is certainly not something that you can consider as optional.


Proper dental hygiene habits, including brushing your teeth and flossing, form a fundamental part of removing debris from your teeth. It is important to remember, though, that dental hygiene is not limited to brushing your teeth correctly. Even if you are super vigilant about your dental health, you may still not be able to get to the plaque and bacteria in the hard to reach places. After plaque is left on your teeth for a while, it hardens. Hardened plaque, or tartar, needs to be removed professionally.


Your teeth may start to become discolored or you may even end up with tooth decay, if you don’t get plaque and tartar build-up taken care of. Moreover, this type of build-up can lead to an array of dental problems and no-one wants a yellow smile. Dental cleanings are an effective solution in this regard. Your dentist can help you to get a healthier-looking vibrant smile!

Specialized equipment is used to eliminate plaque and tartar and, to boot, these tools can help to wipe out stains. Your dental hygienist or dentist will make it a priority to get your gums and teeth into good shape.


Did you know that bad breath is a well-known sign of periodontal disease? If you are serious about getting rid of your bad breath problem, regular dental cleanings are highly advisable. Repeat dental cleanings can help to prevent gum disease and boost your oral health.


Your dentist may advise you to have your teeth cleaned professionally once every six months. However, you need to remember that some people could need dental cleanings more often. It all depends on your unique dental health status.


If you are very precautious (as you should be) and you want to prevent future issues with your dental health, be sure to book regular dental cleanings!

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY

At the Smile Centre, we are continually updating our protocols to ensure the absolute safest environment for you and your family to have their dentistry done. We are continually monitoring and implementing all public health recommendations as they are modified.

The good news is that there have currently been no reports of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 transmission associated with dental treatment.

However with the increase in numbers and community spread we are being extra vigilant.

  • COVID-19 screening ALL persons entering the office (patients and staff)
  • Ensuring adequate supplies of advanced PPE
  • Reducing the number of people in the office at one time by staggering appointment times
  • Using advanced filtration systems to eliminate aerosols in the office
  • Utilizing virtual consultation appointments to communicate with you and limit the amount of office visits you require

We are asking our patients to also do their part by wearing masks, sanitizing their hands and letting us know if they have been in contact with anyone who is sick.

We also believe that taking care of your teeth and good preventive dental care has a positive effect on our immune systems and is an important component of your overall health.

Please call or text us if you have any concerns about your oral care or our COVID-19 protocols... we will be happy to help in any way we can.
