Professional Cleaning Services
At Soho Dental, our philosophy is to detect any problems early so that you can avoid costly and extensive dental treatment. Preventative control of plaque and calculus will not only decrease the chances that you develop tooth decay, but it will also increase the chances that you will keep your teeth healthy for life.
Professional cleaning does not only keep your smile radiant and healthy; it also has a positive impact on your overall health. While brushing and flossing is an integral part of your daily oral hygiene, professional dental cleaning allows the dentist to inspect the state of your oral health and compare it to your previous visits. In case of a dental problem, the dentist will provide an immediate intervention to prevent complications.
Here are several long-term benefits that can make you realize the importance of getting regular dental cleaning:
Get rid of tartar – Unfortunately, simple brushing and flossing cannot remove plaque in hard-to-reach areas. Eventually, plaque hardens and becomes tartar, which cannot be easily by brushing. The dentist uses special tools to thoroughly get rid of plaque and tartar along the gum line and hard-to-reach places.
Prevent tooth loss – When plaque is not removed, it can move further to the gums and destroys the jaw bone that keeps the tooth in place. This causes the tooth to loosen and fall out. To reduce your risk for premature tooth loss, always observe good oral hygiene and schedule teeth cleaning with one of our trusted dental hygienists every six months.
Keep your teeth stain-free – Stained teeth are common in people who love to drink tea, coffee, and wine. Professional dental cleaning keeps your smile bright by removing built-up stains. Unlike over-the-counter whitening strips, you do not experience sensitivity during the cleaning process. Additionally, the dentist will also provide you with helpful tips about teeth whitening and how to keep your smile healthy and bright.
Cavity prevention – The bacteria thriving in the plaque produce acidic substances that damage the tooth enamel, leading to cavities. While brushing and flossing keep the teeth clean, both cannot accomplish the same level of clean that a dentist in Guelph can do.
Early detection of oral cancer – Oral cancer is a life-threatening condition, especially when not detected in its early stage. With regular dental cleaning, it allows the dentist to check for any early signs and symptoms of the disease and will screen you for oral cancer.
