Dental Hygiene

Your Lethbridge Family Dentist

Your dental hygiene routine affects the quality of your smile.

Proper brushing and flossing are important in keeping your smile at its best. But these habits are more effective with regular dental hygiene appointments.

Even with daily mouth cleaning, stubborn debris and bacteria buildup can remain stuck. You'll need the help of your dental hygienist or dentist to get rid of them.

With routine hygiene cleanings at the dental office, you can keep harmful bacteria at bay and prevent the need for complex treatments.

Dr. Lachman and the rest of our team at Cool Dental provide dental hygiene services to patients of all ages.

Why are routine dental cleanings so important?

What to expect during your regular dental exams

  • Oral hygiene evaluation. We talk to you about your dental hygiene routine and lifestyle to better understand the state of your oral health. We’ll check each tooth for decay, cavities, stains, or gum recession.
  • Oral cancer screening. We perform a visual exam of the soft tissue for any abnormalities. Should we spot anything unusual, we may refer you to a specialist for a second opinion or request a biopsy for further examination.
  • Visual oral examination. We inspect your mouth, teeth, and gums, as well as your jaw. We look for signs of issues. We also ask you about existing medical conditions you might have as well as current medications you’re taking.
  • Bite assessment. We take a look at your teeth to see if they’re positioned properly. We examine how your upper and lower teeth come in contact when you close your mouth. We also assess how your teeth and jaw joints work together.
  • X-rays. If required, we also take your x-rays to examine potential problem areas and detect any irregularities that visual examinations won't spot.
  • Checking existing dental restoration. We also examine any existing dental work you may have, such as crowns or crowns, to see if they’re still in good condition and find out if anything needs to be fixed or replaced.
  • Counseling. Your dental exam may also include counseling on areas that can affect your oral health such as daily habits, food choices, and home care routine.
