Preventative Care Q & A

Cool Springs Laser Dentistry

How often do I need to have a cleaning?

The frequency of your cleaning depends a lot on your oral health, your overall health and the balance chemical balance of your mouth.  The rule of thumb for a healthy patient is every six months but we often need to see patients every 4 or 3 months if we are trying to keep the disease at bay and your mouth as healthy as possible.  The healthy mouth is the key to overall good health.

Why do you take x-rays every year?

Many problems with your teeth and gums can be seen with the naked eye, but usually that means the problem has progressed further than it should.  By taking x-rays we can see active decay before it starts to affect large portions of your teeth.  When we find decay early you can have less expensive treatment and preserve more of your natural tooth structure
