About Dental Cleanings@headingTag>
Even with a consistent home oral maintenance routine, including brushing, flossing, and using fluoride, bacteria and plaque can still exist around the teeth. This can create bacterial infections, cavities, and gum disease and other issues. To safeguard that the teeth keep healthy, clean, and free of infection, White Settlement, TX residents should have a dental exam and cleaning about twice a year at Saddle Brook Dental Care with our dentists. This is typically called a prophylaxis, which is a scale and polish procedure. During a dental cleaning and exam, our dentists will use oral cleaning tools to delicately remove tarter build-up and plaque on the tooth's surface. After the cleaning, the teeth will be polished to remove stains and any recommended dental procedures such as fillings for cavities will be discussed. Routine dental examination and cleaning treatments are vital for creating a healthy, long-term smile.

They even went out of there way to meet my needs as I was on a time crunch due to an insurance issue. I highly recommend this dental office especially to those with a fear of people in white coats!"- J.R. / Google / May 29, 2017
What to Expect@headingTag>
Dental cleanings are usually performed without pain, but if the person has a sensitive mouth, a numbing treatment can be given. Also, if the patient has issues getting through the cleaning process due to trouble relaxing, light sedation options are also given at Saddle Brook Dental Care. A cleaning appointment starts with an ultrasonic device that makes it easier to break off plaque and tartar. Next, our dentists use an instrument such as a scaling tool to scale away build-up from the gumline and enamel. The next step is to brush and polish the enamel. Flossing and a fluoride treatment usually completes the cleaning process.
When the teeth are cleaned and polished, our dentists may complete an oral assessment to look for warnings of any oral conditions such as gum disease and oral cancer. To make certain the teeth keep healthy, patients should continue to perform an at-home oral care routine of brushing and flossing the teeth daily. Patients should discuss their next dental appointment at Saddle Brook Dental Care while leaving the office, generally for 6 months later.
Given that a professional dental cleaning bi-annually is considered a relevant preventative care service, most dental insurance companies will cover mostly all of the fees. Saddle Brook Dental Care will check with each patient's insurance policy to determine their personal cost before billing the patient directly. Anyone without insurance can talk about financing programs through Saddle Brook Dental Care.
