We are your Dental Hygiene Periodontal Dentistry Choice for SW Calgary!
At Ultima Dental Wellness, we are committed to focusing on dental hygiene periodontal dentistry and overall oral health. This means decreasing inflammation through periodontal dentistry. When you have active periodontal disease, routine home maintenance, dental hygiene and teeth cleaning is not enough, since these generally focus on areas of the tooth that are above the gum-line. Active periodontal disease and tooth decay often begin below the gum line.
Regular scaling and root planing procedure performed at Ultima Dental Wellness removes plaque, tartar (calculus) and bacterial toxins (biofilms) from tooth surfaces below the gum line.
At Ultima Dental Wellness, we try to make sure that you are on a twice-a-year – or possibly more, depending on your individual health needs – frequency of maintenance and/or preventative care schedule in order to keep your gums and teeth healthy.
Preventing Periodontal Diseases by the use of an Ultrasonic Scaler
Regular removal of tartar (calculus) and bacteria (biofilms) are crucial to treating gingivitis, controlling periodontal disease and preventing tooth decay. How do we accomplish this?
We use an Ultrasonic Scaler
An ultrasonic scaler consists of a wand with a small scaling tip that produces a soft ultrasonic vibration and a gentle flow of water. As the tip moves along the tooth surface, it makes quick, small vibrations that break up plaque and tartar.
These vibrations give you a tickling sensation and cause millions of microscopic bubbles to form in the water.
The benefits of Ultrasonic Scaling
Ultrasonic scaling can be more comfortable than hand scaling because the tip is extremely small. Also, much of the work is done without disturbing the gum tissue. In addition, we can add a medicated solution to the water to treat any infection and aid in healing. Scaling your teeth with an ultrasonic scaler is an effective and efficient method for helping you keep your healthy and beautiful smile.
What is Tooth Decay
Sometimes you may require a maintenance appointment which may include:
- taking digital x-rays to check jawbone levels
- measuring the depth of periodontal pockets
- checking for loose teeth or bleeding gums
- removing plaque or tartar above and below the gum-line
- talking with you about the effectiveness of your homecare
- oral cancer screening and checking the tissues of the head and neck
- Regular dental hygiene periodontal dentistry and preventative maintenance visits help us break the stronghold of bacteria in your gums and slow or eliminate their destructive effects.
Ultima Dental Wellness is committed to helping you maintain healthy teeth and gums. We aim to provide the best care possible, and we suggest regular maintenance appointments to achieve optimal dental health.
