Dental Cleanings Q & A

How often should I have my teeth cleaned?

To maintain healthy teeth and gums, it’s important to schedule dental cleanings every six months. If you have issues like advanced periodontal disease, the Chauvin Family Dentistry team may recommend more frequent cleanings. 

What happens during a dental cleaning? 

Your dental hygienist at Chauvin Family Dentistry first checks your teeth and gums for areas requiring special attention. They may consult with your dentist for specific cleaning recommendations if you have potential problem areas in your mouth.

Your dental hygienist expertly uses a high-tech scaling tool to remove plaque and tartar on and between your teeth. The Chauvin Family Dentistry team always uses gentle dental cleaning techniques to ensure your comfort during the scaling process. 

After removing plaque and tartar, your hygienist uses a gritty toothpaste to lightly scrub your teeth clean. Next is a thorough flossing, cleaning between every tooth. Finally, you’ll swish a rinse to dislodge debris and lingering bacteria. 

If you need preventive care like a fluoride treatment or dental sealants, your provider applies those following the teeth cleaning. 

How do I maintain good oral health after my teeth cleaning?

Brush and floss your teeth every day. To help maintain optimal oral health between professional care, the Chauvin Family Dentistry team also offers preventive care options like dental sealants and fluoride. 

Dental sealants

A dental sealant is a thin plastic layer placed over a vulnerable area of your tooth. Dental sealants keep bacteria and debris out of the crevices in your teeth, which helps prevent cavities. 

Fluoride treatments

Fluoride prevents and reverses tooth decay. Most toothpaste contains fluoride. But, your dentist can deliver a much larger dose of topical fluoride to vulnerable teeth. They can also prescribe fluoride tablets or liquids to use at home. 

The Chauvin Family Dentistry team makes preventive care a priority. You get customized advice about how to keep your teeth strong and healthy between dental cleanings.
