Dental Cleaning & Prevention in Kelowna

A preventative dental care is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. Your dentist at Apple Dental Care will educate and guide you to follow proper dental hygiene and care practices at home. Regular brushing and flossing should be performed twice a day to remove biofilm and food particles lodged between teeth. To prevent cavities, gum disease and other complications from occurring, you need to take special precautions. Maintain a well-balanced diet, avoid foods high in sugar and use a fluoride toothpaste to strengthen your tooth enamel. With the right Prevention care mindset and regular dental cleaning, you can easily maintain your dental health and fight the risk of gum disease.

It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.

Removal of calculus (tartar):
Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for long 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 for Stain Removal:
Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling. Polishing makes tooth surface smooth, which helps preventing attachment of deposits to the surfaces of teeth.
