Dental CleaningsAn Overview


Dental cleanings in Ottawa

Villanova Dental Studio is an Ottawa family dentist office serving patient of all ages in a compassionate, friendly environment. We encourage our patients to get their teeth professionally cleaned once every six months.

Dental cleanings are an essential part of your oral hygiene routine and can help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Teeth cleanings can help prevent the development of more complex oral health concerns down the line.

Regular visits to our Stittsville ON dentist office provide your dentist the opportunity to spot developing dental problems in the earliest stages. Early diagnosis of conditions such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer allow for a chance at effective and minimally invasive treatment.

Preventative dental care visits are important for children, teens, and adults to prevent the onset of dental concerns that could impact your quality of life.

A professional dental cleaning goes beyond what your daily oral hygiene routine can accomplish. Our dentists can reach the pockets of your gums and all tooth surfaces for a thorough and comprehensive cleaning.

We can remove tartar and plaque that isn’t easily removed with daily brushing. Without this dental service, plaque buildup can lead to decay and periodontal disease.

We leverage the latest and most advanced dental hygiene technology, like AirFlow® Guided Biofilm Therapy, to ensure the best possible cleaning with the least amount of time spent in the chair, and delivery of the most comfortable care experience possible. Better, Faster, and more Comfortable care! That’s our goal at Villanova Dental Studio.

Dental Cleanings What to Expect

Dental cleanings will be performed by one of our trained and experienced dental hygienists. They will remove the plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth and from the gum line.

Professional teeth cleanings reach the areas of teeth that daily brushing and flossing can not. Professional teeth cleanings remove harmful bacteria and can help prevent the development of advanced oral health issues.

Your hygienist will also make personalized oral hygiene recommendations. We will help you maintain great oral health between visits. Our goal is to help you reduce the risk of developing more complex problems, and costly treatments.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry can help patients with dental anxiety receive the dental care they need. Preventative dental care and teeth cleanings are essential to avoid more complex oral health concerns. For patients with a fear of the dentist, dental health exams can cause a lot of stress.

Dr. Barakat offers sedation dentistry options to help patients remain totally relaxed and comfortable during any dental treatment.

During your dental consultation, your Villanova dentist will discuss your sedation options with you. Depending on your health and goals, a sedation option will be recommended. We serve patients in Kanata, Ottawa, Richmond and surrounding communities.

Dental Cleanings FAQs

Can teeth cleanings cure bad breath?

Yes, in most cases. A teeth cleaning by a dental hygienist can alleviate and even cure bad breath caused by plaque and tartar buildup. Bad breath stemming from gum disease can be cured with periodontal therapy treatments. It is not that difficult for a dentist to cure your bad breath.

When can I eat after a dental cleaning?

You can use your teeth and mouth normally as soon as you leave the dentist office. Teeth cleanings are a quick and simple procedure with effective results. If your gums feel sore after your cleaning, you can manage it with an over-the-counter pain reliever.

Do teeth cleanings make teeth sensitive?

No. This is a very uncommon problem. Only in severe cases of teeth neglect, where the patient has not visited the dentist in a very long time, will teeth be sensitive after a cleaning. Even then, tooth sensitivity is temporary and can be managed with special toothpastes and care.
