Teeth Cleanings

Comprehensive Dental Care in Hixson, TN

At Tennessee River Dental, we believe everyone deserves a beautiful smile that they're truly proud to show off. Dr. Ken Randall and our expert team work hard to design comprehensive personalized treatments for our patients, and while we proudly offer a variety of restorative and cosmetic treatment options, we strive to focus on preventive care whenever possible. Teeth cleanings are one of the most important parts of preventive care, making them vital to maintaining a healthy smile. 

Why Should I Get Professional Teeth Cleanings?

Professional, in-office dental cleanings are a vital part of your oral hygiene regimen. This is because while daily brushing and flossing are critical to keeping teeth healthy, they aren't enough on their own. Removing tartar and plaque is almost impossible without specialized tools, and there are certain parts of the teeth that are impossible to fully clean through brushing and flossing alone. This means that professional teeth cleaning is a critical element to giving your teeth the "deep clean" they need, helping to prevent dental decay, gum disease, and keeping your mouth healthy.

The Dental Cleaning Process

Teeth cleaning is a simple, routine procedure that we can complete in one brief visit – but it's vitally important to the health of your teeth. Professional dental cleaning removes plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth, preventing dental decay and staving off cavities. 

During your teeth cleaning appointment, Dr. Randall will perform an examination of your teeth and oral health. Dr. Randall will look for any areas of decay, gum disease, or any other issues that might be developing in the mouth, and we may also take diagnostic information like pictures or x-rays. 

After the evaluation, one of our Hixson dental hygienists will perform a thorough cleaning of your teeth and mouth. Your hygienist will use specialized tools to precisely clean your teeth, reaching areas you can't clean at home and removing hardened calculus (tartar) and plaque. After getting rid of the bacteria, your hygienist will use a special brush to polish your teeth, removing stains and making them sparkle.
