Yaletown Dental Clinic
Oral hygiene is important if you are trying to prevent gum disease, bad breath, plaque build up, and other unhealthy aspects of oral health.
At Atlantis Dental Roundhouse, we offer a wide variety of teeth cleaning services to improve oral health by offering removal of dental plaque from teeth and preventing cavities.
Scaling & Root Planing
Scaling and root planing is when dentists remove the plaque and tartar from the gumline. This deep-cleaning procedure can be uncomfortable if you have sensitive gums, but our professional dentists will make sure any discomfort will be minimized.
Teeth whitening is a standard dental health procedure that can prevent gum disease and improve your overall oral health. Our dentists at Atlantis Dental Roundhouse can remove stains and discoloration to help your smile appear naturally whiter and brighter.

Caring for sensitive teeth
Sometimes after dental treatment, teeth are sensitive to hot and cold. This should not last long, provided your mouth is kept clean. If your mouth is not kept clean, the sensitivity will remain and could become more severe. If your teeth are especially sensitive, consult with your doctor. They may recommend a medicated toothpaste or mouth rinse made especially for sensitive teeth.
Eating Healthy For Your Teeth
Good nutrition plays a large role in your dental health. Brushing and flossing help keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong. However, a balanced diet will help to boost your body’s immune system, leaving you less vulnerable to oral disease.
How often and what you eat have been found to affect your dental health. Eating starchy foods such as crackers, bread, cookies, and candy causes the bacteria in your mouth feed on it, they then produce acids, which attack your teeth for up to 20 minutes or more. Foods that stick to your teeth or are slow to dissolve give the acids more time to work on destroying tooth enamel.
Sticky and starchy foods create less acid when eaten as part of a meal. Saliva production increases at mealtime, rinsing away food particles, and neutralizing harmful acids.
Foods such as nuts, cheese, onions, and some teas have been shown to slow growth of decay causing bacteria in the mouth.
Sticky/slow to dissolve foods:
- Granola bars
- Chewy fruit snacks
- Dried fruit
- Hard candy
