Your East York Choice for Dental Hygiene & Teeth Cleanings!


East York Hygiene & Teeth Cleaning | Dolphin Dental | East York Dentist

Healthy teeth and gums are the cornerstone of a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile! That is why Dolphin Dental is pleased to offer dental hygiene and teeth cleaning appointments, to help you achieve the optimal oral health you desire. Regular home care, while important, focuses on areas of the teeth above the gum line (called scaling). A professional dental cleaning can not only clean your teeth above the gum line, but below the gum line as well (subgingival scaling and root planing). It is only through regular scaling and root planing that tartar, plaque, and bacteria can be removed from hard-to-reach areas below the gum line that home care cannot reach. Regular professional cleanings can help keep your teeth and gums healthy from top to bottom!

What Happens at a Dental Hygiene and Teeth Cleaning Appointment?


  • A complete periodontal assessment
  • A complete check of your gum tissue, checking for any gum recession, the presence of gingivitis, and other possible gum disease.
  • An intra-oral exam to check the gum tissue, tongue, and lips for confirmation of health
  • Scaling
    Scaling is a process of removing plaque, tartar (calculus) and bacteria from your teeth so your gums and bone that make up the foundation of your teeth remain healthy and disease free.
  • Polishing, to remove stains from your teeth.
  • Fluoride treatment (if chosen).
    After your dental cleaning, you will be provided with an option to receive fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen the enamel (outer layer of your teeth) and prevent cavities.
  • An oral cancer screening
    At each visit we make our best efforts to screen your oral tissues (including the head, neck, and jaw area) for confirmation of health and signs of oral cancer. The goal is to identify mouth cancer in the early stages or even before it turns into cancer, when there is a better chance for treatment and cure.
  • Digital x-rays, when required.
    Radiography helps us detect cavities in between teeth, assess bone levels, and detect other problems of the oral cavity. Your dental surgeon will decide what type of images you need and how often you need them based on your oral health. Research shows that radiation received from digital x-ray machines is less than the radiation you receive from natural background sources. At Dolphin Dental, we make sure we follow the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) policy.
  • Sealants(if chosen)
    Sealants are protective coatings that are applied on deep grooves of back teeth to prevent cavity formation in the future. Sealant application is a quick, easy, and painless procedure.

How Often Should You Visit Us for an Oral Hygiene and Check Up Visit?


East York Hygiene and Teeth Cleanings | Dolphin Dental | East York Dentist

Dolphin Dental understands that each patient will require a different hygiene and checkup schedule. Most people come in for a dental hygiene appointment every 6 months, although some people may benefit from coming in every 3-4 months, while others may be able to visit every 9-12 months. Genetics, home care, grinding habits, and teeth positioning are all key factors. For those patients experiencing gum disease, heavy staining, loose teeth, or heavy calculus buildup, a higher frequency of cleaning will help keep teeth healthier. We will discuss with you how often you should visit us for a dental cleaning/checkup based on your specific and individual needs.
