Dental Hygiene at Trafalgar Village in Oakville
At Trafalgar Village Dental in Oakville, we value regular dental hygiene check-ups as one of the keys to immaculate dental health.

Keeping all your teeth means better chewing function and, ultimately, better health.

At Trafalgar Village Dental, our dental hygienists will remove plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Your teeth are continually bathed in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which help strengthen and protect the teeth. While this is a good thing, it also means that we tend to get a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth. The purpose of the cleaning and polishing is to leave the surfaces of the teeth clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick to them and you have a better chance of keeping the teeth clean during your regular home care.
Having your teeth examined and cleaned on a regular schedule is important for both your health and your appearance. If we haven't seen your smile in while, contact us at our dental practice in Oakville.
