Dental Hygiene

Visit a Dental Hygienist: Edmonton’s River City Dental

At River City Dental, our general dentistry services include restorative treatments for damaged or decayed teeth. Whenever possible, however, we prefer to take a preventative approach to dental care. The best way to treat your teeth is to avoid running into problems in the first place! At our clinic in Edmonton, we have registered dental hygienists who offer comprehensive appointments, which include educational instructions to help you maintain your oral health at home.

Our hygiene treatments include:

Scaling and Root Planning

We clean your teeth and gums to remove accumulated plaque and calculus (tartar). This can prevent gums from becoming infected, stops bleeding during brushing and flossing, and can help you to avoid gum disease.


We use polish (also called dental prophylaxis) to clean your teeth and gums. Advantages of prophylaxis include:

  • Helps to stop gingivitis and periodontal (gum) disease from progressing
  • Removes plaque buildup (above and below gum line)
  • Removes debris that you may not be able to catch with you at-home routine of brushing and flossing

Oral Examination

Regular checkups allow your dentist to identify problems early and prevent future problems. Our examinations include digital X-rays and diagnostic screenings of your teeth and mouth. We will check your mouth for possible issues like:

  • Oral cancer
  • Teeth grinding
  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Toothbrush abrasion
  • Deterioration of old fillings and crowns

Periodontal Reading

When a patient reaches about the age of 18, our hygienist will keep record of your periodontal scores. At each regular check-up, these “gum score” readings are updated so we can monitor stability of gum health and inform you if you are staying on track with your home care.
