Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I get a dental cleaning?
We recommend that most people get a dental cleaning every six months. Even if you clean your teeth regularly and thoroughly, there are areas of our mouths that even the best of us miss. At your six-month appointments, we’ll clean all areas of your teeth and mouth to ensure these areas don’t turn into cavities.
Your dentist may recommend dental cleanings more often if you’re at a higher risk for oral disease. They’ll work with you to help improve your oral health and try to create an at-home hygiene routine for you to lower your risk of oral disease.
Does a dental cleaning hurt?
No dental cleanings don’t usually hurt. If you experience pain during your cleaning, there may be an oral health issue that needs to be addressed. Notify your hygienist the moment you feel pain so they can be gentle and make sure the area is examined thoroughly.
Increased sensitivity in your mouth may be caused by gum inflammation, tooth decay, or another oral disease. If your dental cleaning hurts, we’ll diagnose the issue and provide treatment quickly so the issue doesn’t progress.
What happens at a child’s first dentist appointment?
What happens at your child’s first dental visit depends on their age. Your child’s dentist will examine the teeth, gums, and development of the jaw to make sure everything is on track.
Sometimes, the first visit may not include much actual dental work, depending on the age of your child. But this first visit can help familiarize your child with the dental office and staff, so they’ll feel more comfortable at future visits.
X-rays aren’t taken as often on children, as baby teeth fall out. But an X-ray can be used to determine if there are any areas of decay. While the teeth will eventually fall out, they can still cause health issues if they’re infected or fall out before they’re ready.
