Preventive Dentistry and Dental Cleanings in Edmonton, AB

Strathcona Dental Clinic offers teeth cleanings & gum disease prevention. Our dentists believe that preventive dentistry is critical for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Regular professional deep teeth cleaning, mineral application, and gum disease treatment, in addition to your regular personal dental hygiene, work to ensure your teeth and gums have their best chance to last you a lifetime.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Strathcona Dental Clinic recommends visiting the dentist for a professional dental cleaning at least twice per year for optimal oral health. However, some patients may require more frequent visits to care for their smiles. When you visit our Edmonton office for your preventive visit, your hygienist will assess the health of your mouth and gums and measure the depth of the periodontal pockets between your teeth and gums.

Our team will remove buildup from the teeth using advanced airflow therapy and ultrasonic instruments, followed by fine scaling and root planing with specialized and precise dental hygiene instruments, working to keep you calm and comfortable every step of the way. Polishing the teeth will follow to remove any remaining staining, and you may also receive a mineral application to help protect your teeth from decay and prevent tooth sensitivity.

Some of the many benefits of scheduling a professional teeth cleaning include:

  • Cavity prevention through the removal of plaque
  • Preventing tooth loss due to gum disease
  • A brighter, cleaner smile
  • Removal of plaque and tartar buildup
  • Fresher breath
  • Early detection of oral health problems that can become expensive procedures in the future

Gum Disease Prevention and Treatment

Gingivitis or gum disease in its earliest stages indicates inflammation in your gums. If left untreated, the inflammation can worsen and lead to a serious gum disease called periodontitis, which can eventually lead to tooth loss and other physical ailments that effect the entire body. Gum protection and gum disease prevention is one of the reasons why your professional dental cleaning appointment is an important part of your dental care routine. Caring for your gums can help you keep total-body inflammation at bay! Talk to your trusted South Edmonton dental team at Strathcona Dental Clinic to create the right periodontal maintenance program for you.

Oral Cancer Screening

Our experienced dentists thoroughly examine your face, neck, tongue, throat, and gums during routine check-ups, diligently searching for any signs of tissue changes or abnormalities. Early detection is essential for effective treatment and ensuring your overall well-being.

Fluoride/Varnish Treatment

Fluoride treatment can strengthen your teeth and protect against decay. With our fluoride treatments applied during your dental visit, fluoride varnish helps remineralize enamel, providing an additional layer of defense against cavities and promoting long-term dental health.
