Oral Hygiene in Hamilton

Dr. Agnieszka Jarecka is committed giving you clean teeth in Hamilton, Ontario

Daily brushing and flossing is critical, but it’s also very important to come in to see Dr. Agnieszka Jarecka for regular oral hygiene visits in Hamilton. These appointments provide your teeth and gums with a thorough cleaning, inspection, and preventative maintenance.

Our friendly dental hygienists will "scale" your teeth — removing tartar build-up — and polish the surface — removing minor stains. You may also receive a fluoride treatment to help fight decay.

But oral hygiene in Hamilton is about much more than just cleaning. They give us an opportunity for us to tell you if you are brushing and flossing correctly, and examine your teeth and gums for potential problems.

If your teeth require restorative work, it's important we find out as soon as possible in order to prevent the decay from spreading. It's also important to have your gums inspected, because periodontal disease (gum disease) can lead to serious health problems — including heart attacks.

Regular oral hygiene visits in Hamilton with the Smile Dental Practice team allow us to spot problems and take action immediately — preventing the issues from getting worse.

We want to see lots of clean teeth in Practice City, so contact Dr. Agnieszka Jarecka today to schedule an oral hygiene visit today, or to learn more about our oral care program.

Q: How often should I have an oral hygiene visit?
A: It is recommended that you visit us at least twice per year for a hygiene visit. This allows us to monitor the state of your teeth as gums, as well as provide a thorough cleaning.
Q: Do adults need fluoride treatments?

A: Fluoride is one of the minerals that builds up the enamel of your teeth, keeping them strong and helping to prevent tooth decay. It is a natural element — found in meat, fish and eggs — and is often added to municipal water sources.

Children are given fluoride treatments to protect their still-developing teeth, but the treatments are beneficial to adult teeth, as well.

Talk to your hygienist at your next visit about the benefits of fluoride, and the different varieties available.

Q: How many oral hygiene visits does my dental insurance cover per year?
A: Insurance plans cover different numbers of annual visits – some only cover one, but many plans cover two visits. We would be happy to help you understand what your plan covers. Please ask us at your next appointment.
