Benjamin Franklin said it best with the axiom “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. That is a good sound foundation for prevention when it comes to dental care. Our office offers dental cleaning which can vary slightly per patient. We also recommend that our patients visit us twice a year for this preventive support. Removing the plaque from the surface of the tooth also removes the bacteria that attacks the enamel of the tooth resulting in cavities. Each of us always have millions of bacteria in our mouths. It is the nature of our makeup. That number can skyrocket though without proper maintenance which will result in nothing by problems. A standard cleaning uses a manual scaling tool to scrape off the plaque and tartar leaving a smooth enamel surface. If the plaque has reached the soft tissue of the gums in may be necessary to take the scaling below the gum line to remove plaque that has infected the gums. Almost half of the American adults over the age of 30 have some level of gum disease and it all can be prevented by keeping the teeth clean.

Proper Dental Cleaning for Children

Children are more susceptible to a buildup of plaque which results in more cavities mostly because of their lack of brushing or lack of quality brushing. We would like to recommend you scheduling your children at an earlier age to not only evaluate the child’s teeth and gums but to give them a proper cleaning. Not only can we abate cavities with this preventive approach, but it gives us the chance to teach and to minimize any dental phobias that may surface later in life.

Proper Dental Cleaning for Adults

Even if your teeth and gums are very healthy it is still in your best interests to have them cleaned every six months. A perfect first step in remaining proactive in your oral hygiene practices. Especially if you experience diet changes, oral hygiene habit changes, additional stress in your life or health changes; any of these could immediately result in a decline in the condition of your teeth demonstrated by a build up of plaque. Our office will consult your history and ask questions regarding your possible lifestyle changes that are evident in the condition of your teeth. This will make us proactive together in moving forward.

The Different Approach for Sensitive Teeth

If you have abnormally sensitive teeth our office will take extra measures to perform gentle dentistry for you when it comes to cleaning your teeth. There are various methods of mild sedation that can be administered as well to make you more comfortable through the process, also making it easier for you to schedule your next visit.

Establishing Good Oral Hygiene at Home

Our cleaning will go quicker and have even better results if you start at home. The dental industry strongly suggests that we all brush our teeth twice a day, for two minutes at each time. Then flossing at least once a day is the basis for a good oral hygiene practice at home. This will remove the bacteria carrying plaque daily not allowing it to form on the teeth. The plaque is the culprit behind cavities and gum disease. If you like our service and want us on your dental health team we will also encourage you to establish appointments every six months for evaluations, x-rays and to continue our professional teeth cleaning. Prevention is the ticket in the dental business.

We like to see patients with healthy teeth and gums. We are also advocates of helping you keep your natural teeth for your lifetime. This can be done together. We might ask you to share your diet and what you might be fond of. Maybe it is your morning coffee or tea, your soda at lunch or your red wine in the evening. Maybe you have a sweet tooth and love your daily cookie or ice cream. We will develop an awareness together of these items that deliver an excessive amount of sugar to the surface of your teeth.

Dental Cleaning Costs and Insurance Coverage

The costs that will be associated with your teeth cleaning procedure will be discussed at the time of your evaluation and consultation. The administrative staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will inquire with your dental insurance carrier to determine the amount of coverage for the procedure. Some plans cover one cleaning a year when we encourage two. If there will be a balance due a payment plan can and will be discussed if that is your wish. We also accept all major credit cards. We may also revisit our options if the budget is a driving factor in
carrying out our plan.
