We know for most people that going to the dentist isn’t their favourite pastime. That’s why at Alpha Dental Care our dental exams are designed with your comfort in mind.
We offer sedation options to take away any anxiety or stress you may feel and the TV above your chair can also help you tune out the sounds of the clinic.
And don’t worry: our hygienists are always gentle. They will give you the breaks you need, so you can relax your jaw and swallow.
Here’s what you can expect at your dental hygiene visit. We will ...
- Closely examine your teeth and gums for issues
- Use a hand scaler and/or ultrasonic scaler to loosen plaque buildup on your teeth
- Gently brush and floss your teeth
- Polish your teeth and use a fluoride treatment to strengthen them against decay
- Discuss the optional use of laser gum contouring or laser therapy to keep your gum line free of dead tissue, prevent “pocketing”, and battle cold sores
