Burnaby BC Dental Cleaning

If you are looking for a dentist in Burnaby, BC and it has been awhile since you visited the dentist, you may wonder what will happen during your next dental cleaning. At Central Park Dental Clinic, you can expect a full evaluation of your teeth and gums so that we can determine the type of dental cleaning that will work best for you. We look for signs of gum disease such as bleeding, swollen gums, and tartar along your gum line so we can address it immediately.

Thorough Dental Cleanings

Dental cleanings are not one-size-fits-all. If you maintain regular care, you can expect us to remove any plaque or tartar and polish your teeth. Our hygiene department will point out any areas that need your attention so that you can do a more thorough job brushing and flossing at home. 

If you have some catching up to do, we may need to provide a deep dental cleaning. These cleanings will remove all of the tartar from above and beneath your gums. Tartar builds up quickly and cannot be removed with brushing and flossing at home. Once it builds up, it can irritate your gums and even cause gum disease. At Central Park Dental Clinic, our goal is to prevent gum disease so that you can enjoy better overall health.

Comfortable Dentistry in Burnaby 

We make patient comfort a priority, so there is no reason to worry about pain during your dental appointment. While we realize that going to the dentist may not be your favorite thing to do, we will always make sure your appointment is as comfortable as possible.

If you are looking for a dentist in Burnaby, BC, we would be happy to show you our office and introduce you to our team. We look forward to meeting you and your family and to supporting excellent overall health by maintaining a healthy smile.
