Preventative Oral Hygiene

What to Expect

We at Smiles on Essa Dental believe you should have teeth that last a lifetime. We offer regular visits to keep your smile healthy and beautiful for years. Our dental team will check your teeth and provide oral hygiene care to detect oral health issues early. This helps in making treatment more manageable and less uncomfortable. So keep your smile healthy with our preventative care! 

Our dentist or hygienist will look for signs of tooth decay at your dental cleaning. The hygienist specializes in cleaning teeth and gums. They will then remove the tartar. Tartar is hardened plaque, which is also called calculus, that has built up on your teeth.

For healthy smiles, prevention is really the best cure.

Regular hygienist visits make all the difference for healthy teeth now and in the future. To keep your smile healthy, we'll address any issues before they become problems.


This process involves cleaning the tooth’s crown. It also involves cleaning below the gum line where plaque is often trapped. Our hygienist will polish your teeth after they are scaled. Children under 18 years of age will have fluoride applied to their teeth at the end of their visit.

Home Care & Brushing Techniques

At the end of a dental cleaning, your dentist or hygienist will tell you to follow proper home care and brushing techniques. Your dentist will also perform a final examination before you leave if required.


Periowave is a quick and gentle technology that uses a non-thermal laser light to kill the bacteria associated with gum disease. This prevents the progression of periodontal disease and promotes quick healing.

ViziLite Plus

We use this specially designed light technology to complete oral soft-issue exams. ViziLite Plus and a visual examination can help us detect lesions and other abnormalities in your mouth. In some cases, these issues could be signs of oral cancer. Oral cancer has a 90% chance of being treated successfully if found early.
