Regular dental cleanings & oral exams are the cornerstones of preventive care

Professional dental cleanings eliminate plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) that you can’t remove with regular brushing and flossing, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. These visits also include a comprehensive exam, which helps us catch issues in their earliest stages when they’re easier and more affordable to treat. Whatever your needs, our focus on communication, comfort and education will help you make the most out of your routine oral healthcare.

Dental cleanings & oral exams

What to expect at
your cleaning and exam

When you visit us for a dental cleaning and exam in Kelowna, one of our registered dental hygienists will scale and polish your teeth and measure your periodontal (gum) pockets. We’ll also take diagnostic digital x-rays, if needed, and intra-oral pictures. The dentist will then perform an exam, which includes a palpable and visual oral cancer screening. You’ll:

  • Get insight into the current state of your oral health and what can be improved
  • See what we’re seeing thanks to our intra-oral camera
  • Receive personalized homecare recommendations
  • Have time to ask questions and discuss concerns
  • Walk out with a clean bill of health or a clear treatment plan to get you there

Benefits of cleanings & oral exams

Prevents dental

Dental cleanings get rid of hardened plaque, helping to prevent cavities and periodontal disease. The dentist will also pinpoint areas of your oral health that can be improved before problems occur.

Allows for
early detection

Routine dental exams and cleanings let the dentist identify tooth decay, gum disease and oral cancer early on. The sooner these issues are caught, the less invasive and more successful treatment is likely to be.

Provides education and guidance

You’ll learn where your oral health stands and exactly what’s working and what’s not with your current oral hygiene routine. You’ll also get personalized recommendations for keeping your smile healthy in between visits.
