Dental Hygienist Calgary Downtown

Why get teeth cleanings?

Regular dental cleanings are one of the best ways to ensure a happy, healthy life. Teeth cleanings are essential to maintaining a healthy mouth and body. This necessary part of oral hygiene involves eliminating plaque build up on your teeth.

Book in for a dental cleaning with the team at Dentalife. This practice helps prevent gingivitis, periodontal disease, and cavities. Plaque build has been also linked to diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Your mouth, your body, your mind – they’re all connected!

Why are regular dental cleanings important?

We understand the temptation of not going to the dentist until there is an emergency, after all “if it isn’t broken, why fix it”? But instead of simply looking for an emergency dentist or a walk in dental clinic, it would be ideal to schedule a regular teeth cleaning with a downtown Calgary dental hygienist.

Why? Simply put, because there are so many benefits!

The dental benefits of teeth cleanings

Dental cleanings prevent gingivitis and gum disease. For those who have poor oral hygiene, inflammation of the gum tissue is uncomfortable and sometimes painful. It can also contribute to bad breath. As gum disease progresses, it affects the teeth and bones.

Eventually, the result could be loose teeth or infections. Gum disease is one of the main causes of tooth loss.


At Dentalife, we believe that today's dentistry should be clear, effective, and healthy.

The overall health benefits

In recent years, the medical community has found a definitive link between gum disease and heart disease, even diabetes. We’ve also noticed that when one of our patience experiences pain, discomfort, or is facing the loss of teeth, stress, anxiety, and depression levels increase.

What to expect during a routine dental cleaning

While it may seem intimidating at first, most dental cleanings are straight forward. Dental cleanings usually take 30 to 60 minutes.

  1. When patients come in for a dental cleaning, our downtown Calgary dental hygienist updates their medical history, takes X-rays, and then proceeds with the cleaning. 
  2. The hygienist will use a variety of dental instruments, in order to reach all surfaces of the teeth. Sometimes they will use an ultrasonic cleaner that sprays water and helps break apart tartar buildup.
  3. Then comes the best part—the polishing.

During a routine cleaning, it isn’t uncommon for Dr. Westersund to come in for an examination. Dr. Westersund evaluates the patient’s teeth for decay and their soft tissue for gingivitis, gum disease, and oral cancer.

Generally, deep cleaning teeth  can save from these severe teeth diseases.

Mind, Body, Mouth – they’re all connected
