Regular visits to your dental hygienist for professional oral hygiene and teeth cleaning are important for maintaining a healthy smile as is regular brushing and flossing. Ottawa West Dental provides complete hygiene services to keep your smile healthy!


Teeth Cleaning

During your visit, our dental hygienists will clean your teeth, examine your mouth and provide preventative dental hygiene services. These dental hygiene services include:

  • fluoride,
  • professional breath control,
  • and periodontal (gum disease) treatments

These services are designed to help you maintain your smile’s health and beauty. We want you to keep your teeth healthy and maintain overall oral health.

VELScope Oral Cancer Screening

At your dental hygiene appointment, your hygienist may scan you for an oral cancer check. Oral cancer screening is one of the best ways to detect cancer early, which is important for your oral health.

Who scans me for oral cancer?

At your dental appointment, your dental hygienist plays an important role in performing a thorough visual examination of your mouth, head and neck to check for any issues. Your dental hygienist may perform an extra-oral examination, or an intra-oral examination which includes a check for any swelling, ulcers, or changes in texture and colour. 

What are Oral Screening Technologies?

At Ottawa West Dental, we use VELScope screening technology for those patients who would like a more thorough examination of their oral cancer risk.

We want to help you maintain your dental hygiene through teeth cleaning. Schedule a cleaning or consultation with one of our dental hygienists.
