Your Choice for SE Calgary Dental Hygiene Therapy in Legacy!
Regular Dental Hygiene Appointments for Optimum Oral Health
When you visit South Calgary Dental & Orthodontics for your SE Calgary Dental Hygiene Therapy, our team of dental hygienists will clean your teeth both above the gum line, which is known as scaling and below the gum-line, using a technique called root planing. We use both traditional hand scalers and our ultrasonic scaling tools to remove calcium deposits, called calculus, from your teeth.
In addition to your thorough teeth cleaning above and below the gum-line, your South Calgary Dental & Orthodontics Hygienist will complete a number of oral treatments which include:
- A comprehensive periodontal assessment, checking for gum recession, the presence of gingivitis and possible gum disease
- Polishing your teeth to remove hard to remove surface stains
- Fluoride treatment which strengthens the enamel in areas that may be weak
- An extra-oral exam at least once a year to check the head, neck and jaw areas for abnormalities
- An oral cancer screening that checks the gum tissues, tongue, and lips for signs of oral cancer
- Take diagnostic digital x-rays [when needed]
How Often Should I Have a Dental Hygiene Visit?
Your hygiene therapy needs depend on several factors. If your teeth are more susceptible to the accumulation of plaque and calculus, if you have crowded teeth, or if you have advanced gum disease, the frequency of your visits may not match the other members of your family. Our dental team evaluates every patient on an individual basis to determine the dental hygiene schedule that will best meet the specific needs of our patients. Most patients visit South Calgary Dental & Orthodontics for their dental hygiene appointments every 6 months, but some people may benefit with a hygiene visit every 3-4 months. Others may only require a hygiene appointment every 9 to 12 months. The dental hygienists at South Calgary Dental & Orthodontics will advise you on how often you should visit our SE Calgary dental practice to maintain your oral health and wellness.
If maintaining the health of your teeth and gums for a lifetime of dental wellness is important to you, our SE Calgary Dental Hygiene Therapy will help you achieve your goal for optimum dental health.

Love Dr. Sharma and all of her staff! My family has been going to this dentist for 3 years and I have absolutely no complaints. Dr. Sharma and her staff are great at making us feel comfortable and at ease. We wouldn't go anywhere else! The odd time it can get expensive with something that is only partially covered or not covered by insurance, but they are great with arranging payment plans if need be.Stephanie - Google
