Routine Checkups Keep Your Smile at Its Best

Taking care of your teeth is essential for a bright and healthy smile. Regular cleanings and exams play a vital role in keeping your pearly whites in tip-top shape.

Dental cleanings are similar to a spa treatment for your teeth. During your cleaning, our dental hygienist will gently remove plaque and tartar that can build up on your teeth. This helps prevent cavities and keeps your gums healthy. They will also give your teeth a good polish, making them sparkle like diamonds.

Dental exams are a comprehensive inspection for your teeth and gums. When you visit us, we’ll take a close look at your mouth to make sure everything is in good order. Your hygienist and Dr. Adkison will look for any cavities, gum disease, or other dental problems. If necessary, we may make recommendations for preventive services like fluoride treatments or dental sealants.

Routine exams and cleanings are important because they:

  • Give us an opportunity to identify dental issues early on before they become big problems
  • Help prevent toothaches, gum infections, and even tooth loss
  • Give you fresh breath and a more confident smile

Lebanon dental cleanings and exams are a crucial part of general dentistry. Call Adkison Family Dental today at 615-434-8780 to schedule an appointment.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

The length of these services may vary a bit, depending on whether we take X-rays or provide any preventive services like dental sealants. Usually, though, we can complete an exam and cleaning in about an hour. You may need to allow more time if it’s been a long time since you’ve seen a dentist.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to wait awhile since their teeth and gums may feel a bit sensitive after their cleaning.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

In general, we recommend that a patient come in every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. Routine checkups allow us the chance to keep an eye on your oral health and provide early treatment for any problems we spot. You may need to visit us more often if you’re susceptible to gum disease.
