Why dental cleanings session is important

Many of us do not place much priority on our oral health, and this can sometimes lead to serious dental issues, causing unnecessary pain and often unplanned costs. Taking the required steps to maintain your oral health such as daily flossing and brushing, combined with routine dental cleanings by a professional can greatly reduce the likelihood of this occurring. Listed below are just a few insights that will demonstrate the importance of routine dental cleanings:

It Will Helps Prevent Plaque and Tartar

Although you may already be diligent when it comes to home care such as daily brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash, these methods will never be as thorough as the dental cleaning you receive when done by a professional. Plaque and tartar that builds up on your teeth can sometimes be in hard-to-reach places like behind teeth and along the bottom of teeth and gum-line. A professional dental cleaning will be able to reach these areas and remove plaque and tartar, leaving your mouth clean and fresh!

It Can Reduce the Risk of Losing a Tooth

The main reasons behind tooth loss are typically gum disease and dental decay. Gum disease due to plaque build-up is said to be a major reason leading to tooth loss in adults. As the gum disease increases, the plaque moves further down the tooth and reaches an area where it can start to deteriorate the bone in the jaw. Once the bone is compromised, it could result in the loosening of teeth or severe cases tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup can reduce this risk.

It Can Help Remove Stains

Daily activities such as drinking coffee or tea, smoking, or even drinking wine can cause stains on your teeth. They can be difficult to remove and may not be affected by your home care routine. A better option is to visit your dentist for a full dental cleaning as it will provide you with a thorough clean which may remove some of those stains. You may also be concerned with bad breath at times; a dental cleaning will also help give you fresh breath.

It Can Help Prevent Cavities

Dental cavities are mostly caused due to plaque; as the plaque starts to build up on teeth, it erodes the layer of enamel. This can leave your teeth open to decay and the formation of cavities. When you go for a dental cleaning, the dentist will remove this plaque, reducing the chances of a cavity.

Dear Patients,

It is with great sadness that I announce that our dental clinic of 20 years has burned down. As there are still safety concerns with entering the premises, we are unable to retrieve patient records , including contact information at the current time. I am hopeful to find a location within an existing office to practice in temporarily. In the meantime, I do have colleagues who have reached out and are open to me seeing emergencies in their clinics if required.

The office number is forwarded to a cell phone, so we are still taking calls at (780) 997-6453 or 780-99-SMILE (no texts). Please also feel free to call or text me directly at 780-970-1446. The fire department and RCMP have worked diligently and we want to thank them for their efforts.
My sincerest apologies for the inconvenience and my deepest gratitude for your understanding and ongoing support. Hopefully we will be up and running very soon as we look forward to seeing you.

Thank you,
Dr. Nimet Jinnah and staff at Fort Smiles Dental (formerly known as Smilemakers Dental Centre)
