Taking care of your oral health expectations

Our dentists understand that everyone wants a unique, personalized, smooth-and-easy visit to their dental clinic. These highly skilled dentists work alongside our well-trained teams to provide a thorough, gentle teeth cleaning that fits precisely into your highest expectations.

Here’s how we do this at Chester Family Dentistry. We’ve put together a team that creates genuine and lasting relationships with our patients. Our caring professionals use gentle, kind demeanors to put you at ease during your visit, each and every time. We stay up to date on the latest technology and techniques and put them all to great use in our office. All of this established our special brand of gentle dentistry years ago and we continue to use these methods every day here in Chester, VA.

What happens during your gentle cleaning?

We start with an exam. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We want to stop anything out of the ordinary in its tracks, and a thorough exam will definitely spot anything that we will want to be aware of throughout your treatment. We’ll take X-rays to detect any such issues and provide an oral cancer screening.

Next comes the removal of those things you don’t want on your teeth—plaque and tartar, and anything else we find that needs to go! We may use floss and brushes to help get that natural sparkle back to your smile. Your teeth will get polished, and any stains will be swiftly and gently removed! We use modern tools that spray away debris from teeth, which is a big improvement upon the uncomfortable scraping of traditional tools.

After a rinse, we’ll apply fluoride to help keep your teeth looking fantastic for as long as possible. Fluoride is the most effective agent in preventing tooth decay. It is a natural mineral that strengthens teeth against acid and decay, and you’re probably most familiar with it via toothpaste. If your teeth need a boost in protection, we can topically apply fluoride to them in a simple, quick procedure.

We are also happy to give you pointers for at-home oral care. Overall, it’s a very rewarding process for your smile!

How often should I schedule a cleaning?

We definitely believe that being proactive with your smile pays off. Even if you don’t have any obvious oral health issues, you should still visit our Chester, VA office for a professional, gentle teeth cleaning and exam every six months so that we can make sure everything is in tip-top shape. This way we can deal with problems (like cavities and gum disease) while they’re still small handle easily.

Do gentle teeth cleanings prevent tooth decay?

You don’t want tooth decay to sneak up on you. It is something that most people don’t realize they have until their dentist breaks the bad news or a painful infection occurs. If decay is left untreated, it can result in a toothache, gum swelling, bad breath, and even tooth discoloration.

To better fight tooth decay, you should keep up with your regular dental office visits and practice good oral hygiene at home. At Chester Family Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art technology to detect cavities as early as possible. If you’re diagnosed with tooth decay, we can determine the best treatment for you. Otherwise, our dentists can discuss best practices for tooth decay prevention.
