What Are Dental Cleanings?

Dental cleanings sometimes referred to as dental prophylaxis or simply prophys, are routine preventative dental appointments focused on removing plaque and tartar buildup above and below your gumline. A qualified dental hygienist uses specialized tools to gently remove built-up bacteria. This prevents more serious dental health issues down the road.

How Preventative Care Helps Your Smile

Regular exams and cleanings at JLM Dental Studio are crucial for preventing minor dental issues from becoming major and expensive down the road. Preventative care from Dr. Jarrett Manning allows us to detect decay and other problems early and treat them affordably.

Professional cleanings remove plaque buildup that can’t be reached by brushing and flossing alone. This bacteria eats away at tooth enamel over time. Complete exams also catch issues in the early stages when they are easiest to treat.

What to Expect at Your Dental Exam and Cleaning

Wondering what a complete exam and teeth cleaning at JLM Dental Studio entails? Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect:

  • Dr. Manning will review your health history and any treatment needs. Then she’ll examine your teeth, gums, tongue, and other tissues for signs of decay, infection, bite issues, and more.
  • Our hygienists will use tools to clean above and below your gum line, removing plaque and tartar buildup. They keep Dr. Manning updated on any areas of concern.
  • Throughout your visit, we educate patients on proper daily dental care techniques for use at home. We also discuss any issues found and the best treatment options.

You can expect your complete exam and cleaning to take about an hour. Regular six-month visits ensure your smile stays healthy long-term.

Other Services That Enhance Your Dental Visit

At JLM Dental Studio, we offer dental services for your smile to ensure you receive high-quality dental care. Here are some of these additional protocols.

Dental X-Rays

We’ll take dental X-rays of your mouth to inspect your teeth and facial structures in greater detail to detect issues that may be invisible to the naked eye. For example, catching cavities or signs of tooth decay allows Dr. Jarrett to start treatment while it’s the most effective and least invasive. Dental X-rays also minimize your radiation exposure and allow for near-instant results.

Oral Cancer Exam

An oral cancer screening is an essential part of your dental checkup. That’s because early intervention significantly increases your chances of beating oral cancer, so thorough screenings are part of our exams at JLM Dental Studio. In addition, by monitoring your oral health for any abnormal signs on an ongoing basis, our dentists can significantly reduce the risk of oral cancer getting out of control or going undetected.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens tooth enamel to help prevent cavities. Most patients get the average amount of fluoride from foods and beverages. Our dentist can apply a concentrated fluoride solution after dental cleaning to keep your teeth healthy and strong for years.  Patients experiencing erupting teeth can benefit from fluoride treatment.
