Combined with a thorough and consistent at-home oral hygiene routine, visiting your hygienist at ProActive Dental Studio in Surrey for regular cleanings is an important part of your long term oral health.
Cleaning & Appointments
At ProActive Dental Studio in Surrey, our dental hygienists are committed to caring for your oral health, through routine cleanings to help maintain the healthy smile you want.
We recommend you visit your hygienist once every six months, or as prescribed by your dentist, depending on your needs.
At-home dental care is also very important for maintaining a healthy smile. Our dental hygienists will carefully instruct you on how to properly brush and floss your teeth, and will make sure that you know about all the tools you need to keep your mouth healthy.
During your hygiene appointment, our team will also provide you with diagnostic services. These include oral examinations, x-rays and even oral cancer screenings.
Working with You
After your dentist has reviewed the results of the above and come to an understanding of your oral health situation, he or she will develop a customized treatment plan, just for you.
At ProActive Dental Studio, our patients needs always come first. We'll listen to your concerns, and work with you to create an oral health plan that works for your needs.

Gum Disease & Your Health
What is gum disease?
Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is one of the most common diseases among Canadians. Despite your very best efforts in maintaining your oral health, gum disease may still occur.
Depending the severity of your gum disease, you may require gum therapy treatment.
What are the symptoms of gum disease?
You may not even be aware that you have gum disease, since sometimes, there are no symptoms at all.
However, some of the noticeable symptoms of gum disease include the following:
- Sore gums
- Swollen gums
- Red or purple gums
- Receding gums
- Bleeding gums
- Persistent bad breath
The best way to determine whether or not you have gum disease is to visit your dentist. Your dentist will be able to examine your mouth and create a plan for you.
If your periodontitis is advanced, we refer Surrey patients to the Periodontists at Proactice Periodontics in Burnaby for specialized treatment and management of periodontal (gum) disease.
