Preventive Dental Hygiene

At Cedar Dental Centre in Kamloops, we work with patients to help them achieve better oral health with professional preventive dental care, including dental checkups and cleanings.

What is Preventive Dental Hygiene?

The best way to approach dental care is to prevent conditions before they start. By maintaining regular dental exams and cleanings and practicing good home care, you are taking important measures to protect your oral health long term.

Book An Exam & Cleaning

Oral Examinations

During your oral exam, your dentist will examine your teeth, gums and bite in order to identify and treat any developing dental health problems before they become serious.

Your exam will also include a dental cleaning, dental X-rays, and other diagnostic procedures as required.

The dentist or hygienist will review your diet and oral hygiene habits, and provide advice for proper brushing and flossing. They may also address lifestyle factors that can affect your oral health.

Professional Cleanings

During your professional dental cleaning, the dental hygienist will use a scaler to remove plaque and tartar from around your gum line and between your teeth. Next, the hygienist will brush your teeth with a powerful electric brush and a gritty toothpaste to deep clean and remove any tartar left behind.

Finally, the hygienist will perform a professional flossing to clean between your teeth and gums.
