Even if you are brushing and flossing your teeth perfectly at home, it is still important to receive a professional cleaning at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at least twice a year. With the aid of state-of-the-art tools, a professional dental cleaning eliminates tartar and plaque that has built up over time and also polishes your enamel, for a brighter, healthier smile.
During your appointment, you will have the chance to ask questions about your oral health and learn if your daily home care routine is adequate or might need some improvement. A professional cleaning is also an opportunity for Dr. Peterson to look for any issues in your mouth that might require further monitoring or treatment.
Why Get Regular Dental Cleanings
If you would like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, improve your oral health, and save money in the long run, schedule a professional cleaning for your whole family at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that people schedule professional dental cleanings at least twice each year. Infants should receive their first dental exam before their first birthday, and after that, Dr. Peterson will help you determine when your child is ready for their next appointment. A professional dental cleaning helps prevent cavities by removing plaque buildup, the biggest cause of tooth decay. A professional cleaning also removes tartar and some staining.
What To Expect?
Your dental cleaning will start by removing the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth, which can be hard to do on your own no matter how often you brush and floss. Advanced tools are used to eliminate buildup without harming your teeth. To start, an ultrasonic device loosens the bigger pieces of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, a finer instrument is used to remove the remaining pieces. Once all the buildup from each tooth is removed, your teeth are polished to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. You can also get a fluoride treatment after your cleaning for added protection.
Dr. Peterson may suggest cleanings more frequently than every 6 months for patients with gum disease or other oral health issues. During your cleaning, Dr. Peterson or a member of his team can help you create a home routine for good oral health by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will meet your needs.
Reviews from Real Patients of James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry
“When you tell someone you are going to the Dentist, everyone makes a frown and says good luck and glad it’s not me going there. Well, I really enjoy going to my Dentist Dr. James Peterson. I have been his patient ever since he opened his practice in Coppell, Texas, and I have no intentions of ever leaving. When you walk thru the door, you are greeted by Courtney with a big bright smile. Jennifer and Ashley, who do your cleaning and checkups, are always friendly, and the conversation is great. Then, Dr. Peterson comes to see you!!! At first, he is asking you how you are, how is your family, and you can tell he really cares. Then he tells you about the results from your checkup. Let’s not forget about Kathleen, his assistant, who is always patting you on the shoulder if he is drilling at that time. I always look forward to going to see my Dentist, Dr. James Peterson. I highly recommend him. He is the Best!!!”
“Peterson is the best dentist I have been to in the area. I would get my regular cleanings from the for a few years and then started going other places that were closer to where I lived. I ended up coming back to Peterson after many sore gums from other cleanings and unfriendly staff at other locations. Peterson’s techniques, knowledge, and care are the best I have experienced. They’re thorough in their work and very friendly. Highly recommend for anyone!”
“I went in for a routine dental cleaning. Ashley did a great job! Dr. Peterson and Courtney are always a pleasure and helpful during my visits.”
