Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Cleanings and

Q: How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

Q: Are dental cleanings painful?
A: Most patients find dental cleanings to be painless. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, let our team know so we can ensure your comfort throughout the cleaning process.
Q: What is the difference between a dental exam and a cleaning?
A: A dental exam involves Dr. Young checking your teeth, gums, and mouth for signs of decay, gum disease, and other health issues. A dental cleaning, performed by our dental hygienist, removes plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gums, polishes your
teeth, and may include flossing and fluoride treatment as needed.
Q: Can dental cleanings whiten my teeth?
A: While dental cleanings remove surface stains and can make your teeth appear brighter, they are not a substitute for professional teeth whitening treatments. If you're interested in a whiter smile, ask us about your teeth whitening options.
Q: What should I do between each dental visit to maintain my oral health?
A: To maintain your oral health between visits, brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, eat a balanced diet, and avoid tobacco products. If you have any concerns about your oral health between scheduled visits, don't hesitate to contact our office.
Q: Will my insurance cover dental cleanings and exams?
A: Most dental insurance plans cover the cost of dental cleanings and exams. Our office staff can help you understand your coverage details and will work with your insurance provider to maximize your benefits.
