At Hometown Dental in Okotoks, Alberta we offer Hygiene Cleaning
Our hygienists are an integral part of our team as oral hygiene is extremely important. Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and Periodontitis (inflammation of the supporting structures of the tooth) can be prevented with excellent home care and regular hygiene appointments. If hygiene is neglected, gingivitis can develop and progress to periodontitis. This is the destruction of gums and bone by the body trying to attack the plaque and tartar. As periodontitis progresses, it is harder to clean deep in the gums and infections and tooth loss can result.
