Frequently Asked Questions

Is dental cleaning painful?

If you haven't had a professional cleaning for a while, your gums may bleed a bit during your cleaning. However, we take your comfort seriously and our hygienists will take it slow based on your needs and comfort level. If your mouth feels sore after your cleaning, take an over-the-counter pain reliever as needed.

There are so many toothpastes to choose from; how do I know which one to use?

Opt for a fluoride-containing toothpaste to prevent cavities. Use a small amount for children under 6 to avoid excessive fluoride intake. Look for toothpaste approved by the American Dental Association (ADA). Their Seal of Acceptance ensures safety, effectiveness, and scientifically supported claims. Consult your dentist or hygienist to identify your specific oral health concerns. Select toothpaste within the recommended category endorsed by the ADA. Consider taste and texture preferences. Gel or paste, wintergreen or spearmint – choose what feels best. Experiment if certain ingredients cause irritation or sensitivity. Remember, if any issues persist, consult your dentist for further guidance.

Is it good to have your teeth cleaned?

Yes! Routine dental cleanings help remove stubborn and bacteria-filled plaque and tartar from your teeth. This is important because, if left too long, plaque and tartar can cause tooth decay, gum disease, and other serious damage.

How safe are dental X-rays?

Exposure to all sources of radiation -- including the sun, minerals in the soil, appliances in your home, and dental X-rays -- can damage the body's tissues and cells and lead to the development of cancer. Fortunately, the dose of radiation you are exposed to during the taking of X-rays is extremely small. Advances in dentistry over the years have lead to low radiation levels emitted by dental X-rays. Some of the improvements are new digital X-ray machines that limit the radiation beam to the small area being X-rayed, higher speed X-ray films that require shorter exposure time compared with older film speeds to get the same results, and the use of film holders that keep the film in place in the mouth (which prevents the film from slipping and the need for repeat X-rays and additional radiation exposure). Also, the use of lead-lined, full-body aprons protects the body from stray radiation (though this is almost nonexistent with the modern dental X-ray machines.) In addition, federal law requires that X-ray machines be checked for accuracy and safety every two years, with some states requiring more frequent checks.
