At Southdown Dental we’re focused on providing and educating preventative dental care to our patients. Our registered dental hygienists provide hygiene appointments to maintain your good oral health.
The appointment duration depends on the condition of your teeth. We may suggest you come in more often if you’re prone to heavy tartar or plaque buildup on your teeth.
Types of Dental Hygiene Cleaning
- Preventative. If your mouth is healthy and only requires professional cleanings for routine care, then a preventative dental hygiene appointment is for you. This dental service is provided to both kids and adults and usually takes about an hour.
- Periodontal. If you have dental issues like periodontitis or gingivitis, your hygienist will remove bacteria, tartar, and plaque located below the gumline. This promotes healing and prevents the disease from progressing. Usually these appointments take an hour but you may need to book multiple sessions.
- Laser Therapy. If you’ve been diagnosed with gingivitis or another gum disease and your dentist believes laser can be most effective for treatment, then this appointment type is for you. It will also last an hour but you may be requested to return for another session.
