At Shawnessy Smiles, located in South Calgary our team provides you with a comfortable dental hygiene experience. Since Dental Hygiene Cleanings are one of the most crucial areas of dentistry, our team takes the time required to educate you about your dental & oral health to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums between appointments.

During your appointment for South Calgary Dental Hygiene Therapy, we encourage you to ask us questions about your oral health — our dedicated team is always here to answer your questions.

Regular Dental Hygiene Appointments for Optimum Oral Health

When you visit Shawnessy Smiles for your South Calgary Dental Hygiene Therapy, our team will clean your teeth above the gum line using a technique called scaling; and below the gum-line, with a technique known as root planing. We also use both traditional hand scalers and our ultrasonic scaling tools to remove calculus from your teeth.

The Shawnessy Smiles Dental Hygiene Team will also complete the following:

  • A comprehensive assessment of your gum tissue, checking for gum recession, the presence of gingivitis and possible gum disease
  • Polish your teeth to remove surface stains
  • A fluoride treatment to strengthen the enamel surface of the teeth in areas that may be weak
  • An examination to check the head, neck and jaw areas for abnormalities
  • Oral cancer screening to assess the gum tissues, tongue, and lips for signs of oral cancer
  • Digital x-rays (when needed)

Your Dental Hygiene Therapy also includes an examination by Dr. Roman Koutsil to evaluate the current health of your teeth, gums, and the surrounding tissue.

How Often Should I Have a Dental Hygiene Visit?

The frequency of your Dental Hygiene therapy will depend on several factors. Teeth are susceptible to the accumulation of plaque and calculus, crowded teeth, or people with gum disease, will require more frequent visits and this may not match the frequency for the other members of your family. We evaluate each patient on an individual basis to determine the dental hygiene schedule that will meet your specific needs the best. The majority of the patients who visit Shawnessy Smiles for their dental hygiene appointments come every 6 months, but some people may benefit from coming in every 3-4 months, and others may only require their dental hygiene visits every 9 to 12 months.
