Regular Dental Hygiene (Cleanings) Q & A

What is regular dental hygiene?

Regular dental hygiene is the routine maintenance of your oral health. It involves good at-home care (like brushing twice a day and flossing daily), but it also requires regular cleanings and checkups with the Daren W. Evans DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry team.

By maintaining regular visits with a dental care professional, you can ensure your smile stays healthy and beautiful.

Why do I need regular dental cleanings and checkups?

Even if you regularly brush and floss at home, you still need to see Daren W. Evans DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry for regular cleanings and checkups.

Many people have areas of their smiles that they can’t always reach with regular brushing and flossing, and the team can make sure those areas are taken care of when you come in for a cleaning.

Seeing your dentist regularly also ensures that any potential oral health problems never have a chance to develop into anything larger and more complex.

Daren W. Evans DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provide thorough and comprehensive care, and when they’re able to treat oral health concerns early, they’re typically able to fix the problem with treatments that are more conservative and less invasive.

What happens during a dental cleaning and checkup?

When you get a cleaning at Daren W. Evans DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, your dental hygienist begins by using a tool called a scaler to scrape all the plaque and tartar off your teeth.

Once your teeth are free of plaque and tartar, they use a special toothbrush and a gritty toothpaste to polish your teeth. They finish with a professional flossing and, if you need it, any fluoride treatments.

After your cleaning, your dentist inspects your mouth, either visually or with X-rays, to look for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health concerns. If you have any decayed or failing teeth, they discuss your restoration options with you, which include composite fillings and zirconium crowns. How often should I have dental cleanings? Most patients should have a dental cleaning and exam once every six months. Some patients need to be seen more frequently, though, such as those suffering from gum disease or other oral health issues. Your dentist works with you to determine a cleaning schedule that’s best suited to you. To get started with your regular dental hygiene, schedule an appointment today by calling the office or booking an appointment online. The practice provides a modern, state-of-the-art office and a team with exceptional hygienists who focus on giving patients beautiful, healthy smiles while feeling like they’re a part of the dental family.
