Dental Cleanings / Dental Hygiene

Dental hygienists receive training in order to provide professional dental cleanings to patients. Dentists themselves can also provide cleanings to their patients. Regular dental cleanings can help prevent decay and gum disease.

In a routine cleaning, your dentist or hygienist will remove any plaque on your teeth. You may also receive polishing of your teeth and may receive fluoride treatment. When patients skip their dental cleanings, they often develop dental problems that can be related to health problems.

Skipped dental cleanings can cause plaque build up, which causes decay and gum recession. Plaque and bacteria that forms in the mouth can lead to pain and even tooth loss.

During your cleaning, your hygienist or dentist may also provide you with regular dental examinations. During your exam, your doctor will check for irregular patches on your tongue, cheeks and gums. This process is an oral cancer screening. Your doctor or hygienist may also measure the space between your gums and teeth. This is called a probing. This will help them evaluate the condition of your gums. In the instance that you have gum disease, treatment will be recommended.

"My experience at Inspiring Smiles was amazing. My dental assistant Brittney was awesome. I have a horrible phobia of the dentist. My blood pressure was at stroke level there due to my fears; however, Brittney help ease my fear. She treated me like a individual and not just another patient sitting in the chair. She talked thoroughly with me about what to expect. I will continue to come to this dentist and I will refer others to come. Thanks Brittney for for your true compassion. It really shows in your work."
