Benefits of dental cleanings by a dental hygienist in Calgary downtown

Getting professional cleanings every 6 months is not only a great way to feel fresh and get instant gratification.

Cleanings are a form of preventative dentistry that protect you from troubling dental conditions that can, and often do, come to haunt us when we don’t see our dental hygienist in Calgary downtown regularly.

Regular dental cleanings can benefit you by:

1. Giving your smile a glow

Love your daily cup of Joe? We get it. Cleanings can help remove built up stains and lessen the impact of discolouration that your caffeine intake and maybe your daily glass of red can create.

2. Reducing bad breath

Obviously, brushing for a minimum of 2 minutes a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing once a day is necessary to keeping your breath crisp on the daily. Cleanings every 6 months can help reinforce these positive habits and keep halitosis at the door.

3. Crushing cavities

Tooth decay is often a result of plaque accumulation on your teeth. This decay can then work away at tooth enamel, creating cavities. Cleanings help eradicate plaque buildup that is not as easily eliminated with regular brushing and flossing.

4. Preventing tooth loss

Gum disease is often a direct result of poor dental hygiene and tooth loss is an unfortunate consequence. A build-up of plaque can cause your teeth to separate and start loosing from your gum line — scary stuff folks!

Regular hangouts with your dental hygienist in Calgary downtown can help keep your gums in excellent condition.

5. Boosting your whole body health

When one system in your body is suffering, it almost always spreads to other areas and can lead to wider systemic health issues beyond just orally.

Maintaining exceptional dental hygiene can prevent and reduce the risk of developing damaging oral infections, conditions and diseases that catalyze other health problems, like migraines, insomnia, and TMJ.

Take care of yourself and help protect yourself from potentially spending a fortune on future restorative or cosmetic dental work in the future with preventative dental treatments, such as dental cleanings.

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.


The Alberta Dental Association & College does not allow dentists to display any patient-reviews directly on their website.

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.
