Dental Hygiene

Keep your teeth fresh with high-quality hygiene services at our Thornhill dental office!

REGULAR DENTAL HYGIENE VISITS

Frequent dental hygiene sessions are the most effective way of taking care of a bright and shiny smile. The trained dental hygienists at our Thornhill dental office are able to detect the initial levels of gum disease with the implementation of preventive treatment planning and examinations. Throughout a typical session, hygienists scale the teeth and clear off any plaque and/ or tartar on the teeth and under the gums, then finish with polishing to take away any debris.

GINGIVITIS, THE RESULT OF POOR DENTAL HYGIENE

Gingivitis, the swelling of the gums, happens when tartar or plaque build-up on the teeth and below the gums. The gums become inflamed, red, and may bleed quite easily. However, this is reversible with adequate oral practices at home, coupled with regular hygiene appointments. Without proper treatment or if not taken care of, gingivitis will progress to periodontitis which is a much more severe type of periodontal disease.

  • Brushing your teeth twice or three times daily with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Flossing routinely to remove plaque from between the teeth.
  • Visiting the dentist or dental hygienist on a regular basis.
  • Refrain from cigarette smoking
