Your dental health is an indicator of your overall general health.
Poor oral hygiene can lead to cavities, gum disease and tooth loss.

How to maintain a good level of dental hygiene, healthy teeth and gums and fresh clean breath ? Our team can help you !

The number one reason why people lose their teeth is  periodontal (gum) disease. Research shows that 90% of all adults have various levels of periodontal  disease.

The disease begins without warning, and in its early stages causes gums to become sore, bleed easily, and contribute to bad breath. As  it progresses, teeth loosen and separate; your bite changes and teeth are eventually lost.

For this reason, we incorporate a regimen of careful gum evaluation into each of your routine dental check-ups.Our goal is to detect early signs of gum disease and offer an opportunity for you to minimize bone loss and preserve your smile for a lifetime.

At King Square Dental Practice our patients will have their gum health carefully monitored by their dentist and have recommendations for cleaning and treatment with a Registered Dental Hygienist.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Professional dental cleaning is performed by one of our highly skilled and gentle hygienists. Your cleaning appointment will include  the following:

  • Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface.  Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
  • Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth.  It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva.  The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums.  This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
  • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
