What to expect when you see your plano dentist for teeth cleaning

At Shifa Dental, we believe that prevention is better than cure. Therefore, our Plano dentists pay extra attention during the oral exam of a patient; this helps in eliminating and pointing out future possibilities of infection in advance. To start oral exam, our expert at dentist examines the condition of your teeth, gum, jaw, and other oral factors. They take a closer look at your mouth and evaluate whether you need to focus on any particular problem or schedule an appointment for additional treatment. This allows us to notify you, the patient, of any possible problems and can save you a lot of pain and discomfort.
To start the oral exam, our expert Plano dentist will ask you about your medical history, current or past medications, alcohol consumption, smoking history, close family member’s dental history, and reaction to anesthesia, among other things. With the answers to these questions, we will be able to understand your susceptibility to various infections. Also, these questions help us in being cautious while prescribing our patients any medication.
During the examination, your trusted dentist at Shifa Dental checks your teeth for any sign of new cavities, decreased fillings, the condition of crowns, etc., and make a note of our observations. We will also take X-rays of the inside of the mouth to take a closer look at your teeth and gums. Additionally, we will check the adherence of gums to your teeth. In a healthy person, gums hold very tightly to their teeth.

After close inspection, our Plano dentist will begin cleaning each tooth very carefully. Then, they will polish the teeth and, in the end, they perform a fluoride treatment.

Once the oral exam is complete, our trusted Plano dentist will discuss their findings with you. We will create the best dental care plan for you and if we find something serious, we will talk with you about scheduling an appointment to fix the issue.

We are here to help you 7 days a week and respond within 24 hours. Plus, you can find most answers to your questions right on this page.

1How often should I have my teeth cleaned?
We usually recommend getting your teeth cleaned and having a check-up done every six months. However, if you have a specific need, our dentist may recommend more regular visits.
2How long does a dental cleaning take?
Most dental cleanings last between 30 minutes to an hour on average, and are performed in a lying position in a comfortable dental chair.
3How can I prevent tartar
Select a fluoride-containing tartar control toothpaste. Dental floss is the only way to remove plaque between your teeth and keep tartar out of these difficult-to-reach spots, regardless of how good you are with a toothbrush. Daily rinsing is recommended. To help kill plaque-causing germs, use an antiseptic mouthwash every day.
4Can I eat Immediately after a dental cleaning session?
You can eat after a regular dental cleaning, but acidic or abrasive foods and drinks should be avoided. If you had a fluoride treatment while getting your teeth cleaned, you should wait at least 30 minutes before consuming anything.
