Dental Cleaning Q & A

by Rupa Govindarajan, DMD

Besides Teeth Cleaning, What is Involved with a Dental Cleaning Appointment?

Dr. G and the Same Bass Family Dentistry office provide complete preventative care to all of their patients. In addition to cleaning your teeth, Dr. G will offer instruction on how to properly brush your teeth, floss, and general oral care. She might also discuss with you the role that nutrition plays in improving oral health and which foods you should avoid.

How Can I Become More Proactive About Improving My Dental Health?

Each patient of Dr. G's has unique needs and challenges. You can improve your oral health by paying attention to key tasks. Those include brushing at least twice per day using proper brushing techniques. Flossing your teeth twice per day is important in helping you address the care of your teeth and gums where your toothbrush cannot reach. You can avoid sugary foods and foods that increase the risk of cavities. Paying attention to the quality of your diet is also important. The rewards for being proactive about your oral health is that as you age, you require fewer dental procedures and you can avoid dentures.

How Often Do I Need a Dental Exam?

Typically, it's just once per year. However, Dr. G will go over with you the frequency for dental care and visits. Some people require teeth cleaning every three months. Others require that their teeth are cleaned every six months. You usually need X-Rays only once per year or prior to complex procedures.

What If I Am Afraid of the Dentist or Have Not Been to the Dentist in a Long Time?

There are no judgments from Dr. G. She is a kind and caring dentist who makes everyone feel at home. If you are fearful of the dentist, be sure to talk to her about it. For dental procedures, there are various types of sedation available. If you have not been to the dentist for a while, then now is a good time to remedy that. Dr. G focuses on improving your oral health and would like to see you care for your mouth properly.
