Hygiene Services in Markham, ON

At 7 Days Dental, we are committed to the oral care of our patients. We encourage you to schedule check-ups at our Markham dental clinic once or twice per year, as well as maintain good habits in between your visits. It is essential to brush and floss daily, avoid smoking, eat healthy foods and beverages, and avoid sugary or sticky ones.

Practicing good oral hygiene

When you come in for a routine appointment, our dentist will examine your teeth and gums for cavities, gum disease, alignment issues, and more. Our team also provides a deeper cleaning and possible scaling to help clear away plaque and tartar. We may also take X-rays using intraoral cameras to delve deeper into difficult areas to see with the naked eye.

If we determine you may be developing problems, we will monitor you closely over time or use preventive care. If you already have dental issues, our team can explain your treatment options and recommend the most suitable one to address your unique situation.

Dental treatment options

Beyond helping restore your teeth and gums for appearances’ sake, many dental treatments have hygiene benefits to improve your oral health.

Each potential dental issue has a possible solution:

  • Fillings help to repair cavities
  • Dental implants help secure a restoration
  • Crown or bridges restore your teeth
  • Dentures replace missing teeth
  • Veneers and bonding improve the appearance of your teeth
  • Orthodontics help you achieve better alignment
  • Mouthguards help protect your teeth and gums from injury
  • Nightguards deters teeth grinding and clenching while you sleep
  • Teeth whitening works to brighten your smile
  • Gum reshaping changes your gum line

Hygiene services in Markham, ON, take on many forms. Regardless of the treatment we provide, our Markham dentist can restore or repair your teeth to help you avoid serious oral problems.

  • Cleaning and scaling: Since we have dental tools and the ability to access hard-to-reach places in your mouth, professional teeth cleaning is more effective at removing bacteria and plaque. For stubborn buildup above and below your gum line, we recommend scaling (i.e. scraping) to deep clean your teeth down to the gum pocket.

  • Fluoride treatment: We use a highly concentrated dose of fluoride rinse, gel, foam or varnish, with a brush, tray, swab or mouthwash applications. At your dental cleaning and checkup, we will review or inquire about your medical and dental history. We will simply deter you from eating or drinking for approximately half an hour.
  • Halitosis treatment: We will suggest an antibacterial toothpaste or mouthwash to further tackle bacteria, leading to bad breath. Practicing good oral hygiene, cleaning your dental appliances, ensuring that you stay hydrated, and avoiding certain foods known for leaving bad aftertastes will also have a significant improvement.
