What Is Oral Care and Dental Hygiene?

Oral care or dental hygiene is, simply put, the process of brushing and flossing regularly and in a proper manner in order to avoid cavities and other oral issues. This also includes paying regular visits to a trained and qualified dentist in order to sit for a thorough dental check-up at least once every six months.


What Do Dental Hygiene Service Include?

The dental hygiene services that we provide include the following:

  • Cavity reduction and removal

  • Teeth whitening

  • Scaling

  • Root Planting

Importance of Dental Hygiene

Maintaining good dental hygiene is important in order to avoid the build-up of cavities and other oral problems and diseases. Other reasons why you should maintain good dental hygiene include:

  • It will avoid the need to get dentures etc., in future and help you keep your natural teeth.

  • Avoiding plaque build-up; also makes it important to get regular dental check-ups and cleanings from a professional because plaque can not be removed properly at home.

  • To avoid discolouration and yellowing of your teeth, thus maintaining a dazzling and pearly white smile.

  • Prevent gum diseases

Preventive Dental Care

We recommend scheduling an appointment every six months to stay ahead of possible dental problems. At your routine appointment, we’ll examine your teeth and screen for signs of gum disease.

Gum disease is preventable and comes on slowly. However, it can be a nasty disease if not caught early. If you think you have gum disease, our Calgary staff will present treatment options. You'll know you have this condition if you exhibit the following symptoms:

Swollen gums

Teeth grinding or clenching

Bad breath

Bleeding gums (during tooth brushing)

Dry mouth


All of these irritants may indicate gum disease. With our Calgary dentists, you can prevent and even reverse these problems.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Hygiene

How often should I take my child to a pediatric dentist?

You can bring your child to our clinic once every six months or when their first tooth emerges.

How can my child get enough fluoride?

Toothpaste is an important source of fluoride as it supplies important nutrients and minerals to your child’s teeth.

I brush and floss regularly, but I still get cavities. What am I doing wrong?

Factors such as genetics and lifestyle choices affect your oral health. Use of tobacco, the type of food you eat and improper brushing techniques can lead to various dental problems, such as plaque or cavity build-up.

Why should I remove my wisdom teeth?

If your wisdom teeth align well and you have a healthy gum tissue, extraction is not needed. But, when your wisdom teeth do not erupt properly and grow sideways or might remain trapped beneath the gum and bone, they should be extracted.
