How long will my first dental appointment be?

If you are new to Scottsdale Dental Centre, your first appointment includes a discussion about any relevant medical history and dental history. Your oral health routine is important for your overall dental success, with the first step being preventive steps. Our highly-trained dental team can provide thorough dental cleanings and exams to ensure that all food particles and bacteria have been removed. 

We recommend frequent dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar build-up and particles that hide between your teeth. Routine and meticulous brushing and flossing can remove most food particles and bacteria; only a skilled hygienist can remove plaque and tartar that build up in places you cannot reach. 

A mild case of gum disease might require simple routine cleanings for your oral health. If your gum disease is allowed to advance, your dentist may recommend scaling and root planing to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums. Patients with advanced gum disease may require more frequent dental visits. 

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. If you haven't been to the dentist in a while, you can get your oral health back on track. We offer many different dental procedures that can diagnose and heal different oral issues.

We look forward to treating you and keeping you healthy!
