At High River Dental Centre, our Dental Hygiene Team provides High River Periodontal Care, because we believe that caring for your gums is one of the most crucial areas of dentistry. We take 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 High River Periodontal Care, we encourage you to ask us questions about your oral health — our dedicated team is always here to answer your questions.
When you visit High River Dental for your High River Periodontal Care, 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 High River Dental Hygiene Team will also complete the following:
Your Periodontal Care also includes an examination by our Dental Team to evaluate the current health of your teeth, gums, and the surrounding tissue to determine the existing conditions present in your mouth, and to plan the appropriate dental treatments necessary to correct these concerns. Teeth cleanings and check-ups are essential for your oral health and wellness.
The frequency of your Periodontal Care 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 High River Dental 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.
We know that maintaining the health of your teeth and gums for a lifetime of dental wellness is important to you which is why we offer High River Periodontal Care to help you achieve your goal for optimum dental health.
