Answers to Your Oral Hygiene Questions

Is it beneficial to undergo professional teeth cleaning?

Absolutely! Regular dental cleanings play a crucial role in eliminating stubborn plaque and tartar loaded with bacteria from your teeth. This is vital because when left unaddressed, plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and various other significant dental issues.

What's involved in a teeth cleaning process?

Throughout the cleaning session, your dental hygienist will conduct a thorough periodontal evaluation of your gums, identifying any gum recession or periodontal pockets. They will delicately eliminate plaque and tartar from around your gum line and between your teeth. Once your teeth are free from tartar, we'll employ a state-of-the-art electric brush to polish them and finish by flossing in between. In addition, we include an oral cancer screening during each visit. If you're prone to cavities or experience chronic tooth sensitivity, we might also suggest a prescription fluoride treatment or mouthwash.

Does dental cleaning cause discomfort?

If you've gone a significant period without a professional cleaning, you may experience some minor gum bleeding during the process. Nevertheless, our hygienists prioritize gentleness and will proceed at a pace that suits your requirements and comfort. In case you feel some post-cleaning soreness, an over-the-counter pain reliever should help alleviate any discomfort.

Are dental cleanings covered by my insurance?

The majority of dental insurance plans provide full coverage for your biannual dental cleanings. While you are expected to make the payment during your appointment, our office is pleased to assist in submitting the bill to your insurance for reimbursement.
