The cost of Dental Checkups & Cleaning in Edmonton can range from $73.85 to $116.66. These appointments allow dentists to identify and treat dental issues early on, which can save patients time and money in the long run.
During a cleaning, dental professionals remove plaque and tartar buildup from teeth, preventing cavities and gum disease.

Oral Care at Home
Once you’ve had your teeth cleaned, you’ll want to step up your oral care if required, in order to keep them healthy and looking great until your next appointment. While brushing after every meal is ideal, we recommend brushing at least twice a day after your first and last meals and flossing a minimum of once daily after dinner. Going to sleep with clean teeth means that for approximately eight hours your teeth will not be exposed to decomposing food debris, acid and bacteria – which all lead to gingivitis and cavities over time.
Watch What You Eat
In order to keep your teeth looking their best, it’s important to consider the impact that your diet has on your oral and systemic health. For example, someone who eats a protein and plant-rich diet is likely to have minimal staining and an absence of decay and tissue irritations (like gingivitis). Someone who eats mainly processed food and breads is likely to present with tartar and staining from drinks like red wine, coffee and caffeinated teas. These beverages contain sugars and are heavily pigmented – and since bacteria eat sugar and expel acid, where there are sugars, there will be acid.
This acid immediately begins attacking the enamel that protects the teeth, and deposits stains when the enamel has been compromised or tartar is present. Minimize exposure to acids by drinking more still water and decreasing carbs (cutting out sugar, bread, etc.). Decreasing sugar intake is a step you can take toward better overall health and wellness as well as taking care of your teeth.
What to Expect
Your visit will involve a full visual examination of your oral cavity and tissues to assess their health, followed by digital X-ray capture and review. Once you’ve discussed your teeth and any concerns with your dentist, a dental hygienist will arrive to complete the cleaning process. Cleaning consists of carefully scraping tartar from the teeth and polishing the teeth to remove surface stains and smooth the teeth. Next, your hygienist will floss your teeth and offer you a fluoride solution before sending you on your way. Remember to book your next appointment before leaving for the day.
