Dental Exams and Dental Prophylaxis (Teeth Cleanings) at Nuera Dental Center in Downtown Calgary

At Nuera Dental Center, we recommend our patients to get complete dental exams and dental prophylaxis (teeth cleanings) at a minimum of once a year.  During your exam, we will look at your overall oral health, provide a cleaning of your teeth and gums to prevent the progression of gingivitis.


When you choose us for your oral health, you can rest assured that we treat our patients with kindness and professionalism.  In addition to getting your regular exams and dental prophylaxis treatments (teeth cleanings), we always recommend our clients brush and floss minimum twice daily to ensure your overall oral health.

Dental Prophylaxis (Teeth Cleaning) in Calgary

A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. It is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease.


In addition to this treatment when you are at home, it is essential for you to keep up with daily teeth brushing and flossing for your overall dental health. Excellent oral health habits come with many benefits worth noting.

Benefits of Regular Dental Prophylaxis (Teeth Cleaning)

Dental Prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease. The benefits include:

  • Plaque removal. Tartar (also referred to as calculus) and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Unfortunately, even with a proper home brushing and flossing routine, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria, and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging buildup.
  • A healthier looking smile. Stained and yellowed teeth can dramatically decrease the esthetics of a smile. Teeth cleaning (dental prophylaxis) is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these unsightly stains.
  • Fresher breath. Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and potential gangrene stemming from gum infection, results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus, and bacteria at our facility can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.
  • Saving money by preventing long-term damage to your teeth

At Nuera Dental in downtown Calgary, we are passionate about our patients’ oral health.  Your mouth is like the gateway to the rest of your body and many people do not realize that symptoms like bleeding gums or tartar and calculus buildup can be absorbed through to the rest of your body.  We recommend getting dental prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3-4 months for periodontitis sufferers or those with certain chronic conditions. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but regular prophylaxis treatments (teeth cleanings) are the best ways we can effectively halt


We look forward to meeting you for your next dental exam and dental prophylaxis (teeth cleaning).
