Dental Cleanings and Examinations
Dental cleanings and examinations are a professional cleaning you receive from a dental hygienist or Falls Church dentist. When visiting NOVA Dental Studio for the first time, we will clean your teeth. Most cleanings take approximately one hour to accomplish for our patients. Your teeth will be polished, flossed and any necessary dental x-rays will be taken. The examination will cover a dental cavity check, periodontal (gum) health assessment, TMJ screening and an oral cancer examination. Dr. Paesani and his team will review your medical history and may recommend dental treatments according to your current standing dental health.
Dr. Paesani typically recommends to have cleanings/examinations every six months to reduce potential staining and excessive plaque buildup. However, some patients will require more frequent cleanings if gum disease is present. Plaque can contribute to uncomfortable breath, tooth decay and may affect the health of your gums. Routine cleanings may include additional deeper examinations and technical evaluations that are desired for achieving optimum tooth health.
Oral Hygiene Care
Maintaining a strong practice of oral hygiene is essential to your overall health and is imperative for your teeth and gums. Committing to habitual daily preventive care will help prevent issues before they can occur. This includes proper methods of brushing and flossing on a regular routine basis. Good oral hygiene is indicated by having teeth that are clean and free of foreign debris. Gums should be pink and not sensitive to brushing or flossing. Also, your breath should not be bothersome and should not be an issue over time.
In between regular visits to Dr. Paesani’s office, there are several steps you can take to greatly decrease your overall risk to tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other complications. These include:
- Habitually brush teeth twice a day; floss teeth on a daily basis
- Maintain a balanced diet; eat healthy snacks between larger meals
- Utilize dental products which contain fluoride if possible
- Rinse with a flouride mouth rinse if instructed to do so (generally before bed)
- Visit NOVA Dental Studio twice a year for professional cleanings and examinations
- Replace toothbrushes every three months to ensure proper quality and hygienic practices
