Dental Cleanings and Exams
Dental cleanings and exams at Cathedral Dental are designed to improve and protect the health of your mouth. We pay special attention to the following factors during every appointment:
- Lymph nodes and lower jaw joints
- Signs of gum disease, loose or broken teeth, tooth decay, and other damage
- Changes in the way your gums cover your teeth
- Overall cleanliness of your teeth and gums
- Any signs of oral cancer
Of course, every dental exam also involves a cleaning to remove plaque that regular brushing and flossing often miss. In addition, hardened plaque, tartar, can only be removed via a professional cleaning. We also apply fluoride if needed. Topical fluoride is a simple yet powerful way to protect teeth from cavities, especially if you have tooth enamel problems, dry mouth, or generally poor oral health.

X-Rays At Your Dental Cleaning
Digital x-ray imaging is also an important part of your regular dental cleaning appointments. Your dentist uses digital x-rays to produce detailed images of your teeth, gums, and bone. This is important because x-rays make it possible to evaluate your oral health and detect, diagnose, and treat existing conditions and diseases.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Following your dental cleaning, you can expect clean teeth, fresh breath, and an attractive smile. Dental cleanings are painless, and usually take less than 45 minutes. During your cleaning, our dentists will scrape off any plaque on your teeth, and then clean and polish your teeth to remove bacteria biofilm on and between your teeth. We may also provide a fluoride treatment if it seems that your teeth are at a higher risk for tooth decay.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends that both children and adults receive a professional teeth cleaning and exam twice a year. Patients with a history of periodontal disease or another recurring oral disease or condition may require more frequent treatments.
You should brush your teeth in the morning and before you go to bed, or after each meal. You should also floss daily, and rinse with an anti-bacterial mouthwash. This will help keep your teeth and gums healthy between dental cleanings.
Remember to change your toothbrush every 2-3 months, and avoid using hard-bristled toothbrushes, and this can cause tooth sensitivity and promote bleeding gums.
If you are experiencing dental pain, contact our dentists. Waiting could make the problem worse, and early treatment is always easier to perform, less invasive, and less expensive.
Dental cleanings keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy, and help you avoid paying for expensive dental procedures in the future. For example, when gum disease is left untreated, you may require deep cleaning (scaling and root planing), gum grafting, bone grafting, or a tooth replacement.
The human mouth is full of bacteria. Some forms of bacteria are beneficial to your oral health, while some can be extremely damaging. When harmful bacteria accumulate on your teeth, they release acids that erode dental enamel and inflame the gums, causing tooth decay, periodontal disease, discolouration, and tooth loss. Other oral diseases may also develop as a result of these conditions. Practicing good oral hygiene at home and receiving regular dental cleanings help to remove harmful bacteria, plaque, and tartar from your mouth and keep your teeth and gums healthy.
