Dental Hygiene

Dental cleaning is the removal of dental plaque and tartar from teeth in order to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease. Gum disease accounts for at least one-third of adult tooth loss.

At Plateau Village Dental Centre we recommend that teeth be cleaned professionally at least twice per year. Some adult patients build up plaque and tartar more frequently and may have to see the dental hygienist every 3 to 4 months. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and root planing if needed, tooth polishing, and, fluoride treatment.

Good oral hygiene is essential for preventing tartar build-up which causes the problems mentioned above. This is done by carefully and frequently brushing with a toothbrush and the use of dental floss to prevent accumulation of plaque-producing bacteria on your teeth.

If you need a dental cleaning in Coquitlam or Port Coquitlam, don’t hesitate in contacting us.
