Louisville Dental Cleanings and Exams

Most people are unaware of the critical role good oral hygiene plays in overall health. Residents of Louisville, Kentucky can look to Springhurst Hills Dentistry for comprehensive dental care including thorough cleanings. Professional dental cleanings are required for the deep cleaning of teeth. This level of cleaning aids in preventing dental caries and periodontal disease. Preventative care is a focus at Springhust Hills Dentistry. Your natural teeth are one of your greatest assets, not just for appearance but overall health also. The mouth is the very beginning of your digestive system. Keeping it in tiptop shape is important for your wellbeing and digestive vigor. Our complete oral care services are designed with this in mind.

When you have your teeth cleaned professionally every six months you avoid dental problems that can crop up over time. Louisville dentist Dr. Tran knows exactly what to look for with each patient. As you establish a regular routine with her, she is better able to monitor changes that may occur in your dental tissues. Plaque buildup can cause gum disease or gingivitis. Left untreated gingivitis can lead to serious problems with your gums and teeth. This is a preventable problem with regular dental cleanings and exams. If our hygienist determines that you are in need of periodontal treatment, you will be advised and educated on the procedures so you will have a clear idea of what to expect.

Comprehensive Dental Exams & Checkups

The extensive dental exams at Springhurst Hills Dentistry cover all aspects of your oral health. We look for problem areas on tooth enamel, gums and soft tissues. Dr. Tran will assess the condition of your mouth and make any needed recommendations. Dental exams reveal areas that need addressing such as restorative care, orthodontic needs and cosmetic dentistry. With today’s cutting edge dental technology, you can be assured that you will have the most comfortable dental exam and follow up care available in the Louisville area.

How often should I get dental cleanings?

We recommend patients schedule routine cleanings and exams twice per year, even if they have an impeccable oral care routine and healthy teeth and gums. This is because dental cleanings can remove plaque from areas that are hard to reach with a toothbrush and floss. Exams are also an important part of routine preventative care because many dental issues are hard to detect without professional dental training and X-ray technology.

Does an oral exam or dental cleaning hurt?

Routine exams and teeth cleanings should not be painful. If you have very sensitive teeth or gums, please let our team know so that we can be extra careful. We can also check to make sure that your sensitivity is not being caused by gum disease, tooth decay, or another dental issue.

Can a dental cleaning damage your gums?

No, dental cleanings should not cause any damage to your gums. In fact, avoiding routine cleanings is much more likely to cause damage to your gums, because plaque and tartar can build up over time and potentially cause gum disease. Our team is not only very experienced when it comes to routine cleanings, we are very gentle as well.

Can a dental cleaning whiten teeth?

You can expect your dental cleaning to leave your teeth feeling fresh and clean, but cleanings will not make your teeth noticeably whiter. If you are interested in whitening your teeth, Springhurst Hills Dentistry offers professional in-house whitening services that can help you brighten your smile.
