Teeth Cleaning in NW Calgary for Your Dental Hygiene

If you brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day your teeth and gums are probably pretty healthy. However, taking care of your teeth requires more than just brushing and flossing. To ensure your teeth and gums are as healthy as possible, you need to visit your dentist roughly every 6 months for a checkup and teeth cleaning.

A professional teeth cleaning in NW Calgary includes several steps that will examine your teeth, remove any plaque and tartar and help prevent future problems. If you haven’t had a professional teeth cleaning in a while, you can schedule an appointment online with Panatella Dental.

  • Preventing cavities by removing plaque
  • Stopping tooth loss by keeping your gums healthy

  • Freshening your breath with professional tooth paste

How It’s Done

While brushing and flossing help stop plaque buildup, once it starts it can only be removed at your dentist’s office. If you don’t like getting your teeth cleaned at the dentist or you’re concerned about the process, Panatella Dental can help. There are several steps to a professional teeth cleaning.


  1. The first step is getting X-rays so your dentist can see deep into your teeth and determine if there are any problems that need to be addressed. 
  2. The second is a physical exam of your entire mouth. A dental hygienist will use a small mirror to look for signs of gingivitis and other concerns. 
  3. The third step involves removing plaque and tartar. This is the step that people usually dislike the most, as it involves using a scaler tool that makes scraping sounds. 
  4. The fourth step is the gritty toothpaste cleaning. Using a high-powered electric brush, your dentist or dental hygienist will clean your completely clean your teeth. This toothbrush makes a grinding noise that can be unpleasant, but it won’t cause you harm. 
  5. The fifth step is flossing. While you may do this at home, your dentist is a professional who knows how to get into all of the nooks and crannies in your teeth. This expert flossing will locate trouble spots and remove any leftover plaque.
  6. The sixth step is to rinse your mouth to remove any debris from the brushing and flossing steps. The rinse used will often contain liquid fluoride which helps protect your teeth.
