Protect Your Smile With Dental Hygiene Services

At Burnaby Dentist & Orthodontist in Burnaby, we know that diligent dental hygiene care helps our patients achieve and maintain excellent oral health for life. Because a healthy smile impacts oral and overall well-being, it’s vital for everyone to regularly receive preventive treatments, which include professional teeth cleaning and exams, fluoride treatments, periodontal care, and dental education on proper oral hygiene practices.

Why Are Dental Hygiene Services So Important?

By helping patients understand the importance of keeping their smiles strong and healthy, these services provide a variety of short- and long-term benefits. For example, professional teeth cleanings that remove plaque and tartar build-up from teeth help prevent cavities, gum disease, and bad breath, while dental exams ensure that our team can identify and treat issues before they progress. Fluoride treatments strengthen tooth enamel and make teeth more resistant to decay, and periodontal care focuses on the health of the gums and can involve scaling, root planing, and more to treat and/or manage gum disease.

But the benefits don’t end there. Patients with poor oral hygiene are proven to have a higher risk for various systemic conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections. By maintaining good oral hygiene, patients can reduce their risk for these issues. And because tailored patient education is included with every visit, patients can benefit from recommendations on dental hygiene practices, nutritional tips, and more that help them protect their oral health, leading to better outcomes and a healthier smile.

How Often Should I See My Dental Hygienist?

While many patients require bi-annual cleanings and check-ups, those with gum disease, certain medical conditions, and/or are at higher risk for dental problems should have their smile cared for more frequently to ensure early detection and treatment of potential issues.
