This important aspect of your oral health journey is vital to keep your mouth in its best shape! Discover the answers to frequently asked questions about dental cleanings.

What will my dentist look for at my dental cleaning appointment?

While cleaning your teeth and eliminating any present plaque, your dentist will look for present tooth or root decay, jaw issues, overall oral hygiene, and restorative options (if necessary). Discovering any present or possible issues can allow your dentist to create a proactive, instead of a reactive, plan of action.

How can I keep my teeth clean at home?

You’ve likely heard it your whole life, but it’s worth repeating: brush your teeth at least twice every day and floss at least once every day. By keeping up with this simple routine, you are minimizing plaque and other dental issues! Further, replace your toothbrush every three months to ensure the bristles are doing their job properly.

Why are professional dental cleanings so important?

Managing your oral health at home is very important, but it’s not possible to get a deep clean at home like your dentist can at the office. Dental cleanings will give your teeth, gums, and mouth a much-needed cleaning boost. These appointments also allow your dentist to check for any rising issues.

How can I keep my child’s teeth clean?

We recommend brushing their teeth twice per day and flossing once per day, just like you would! Although their baby teeth will fall out and be replaced by adult teeth, it’s important for your little one to learn the basics of oral hygiene, and these practices will keep their oral hygiene in great shape.
