How long will my first dental appointment be?

If you are new to Scottsdale Dental, your first appointment includes a discussion about any relevant medical history and dental history.  This is the first step towards introducing an overall preventive program to keep your teeth healthy. Our skilled hygienists provide thorough, comfortable cleanings that usually take about 60 minutes.  

The purpose of a cleaning is to remove the plaque and tartar that build up and collect on your teeth. While your toothbrush can remove most plaque, tartar can only be removed by a hygienist using specialized instruments.

If your mouth is generally healthy or you have a mild case of gum disease (gingivitis), a routine cleaning is usually enough to protect your oral health. However, more advanced cases of gum disease may require a deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing or more frequent dental cleanings every 3-4 months.

If it’s time for your next cleaning or you have questions about keeping your smile healthy, please call our Guelph, ON dental office for more information.
