Enjoy professional teeth cleanings on Saturdays at Franklin, OH dental practice
For many patients in the Franklin, Ohio area, Saturdays are one of the best days to run errands. Unfortunately, many professional services are not available outside of traditional weekly business hours. Patients who are looking for a more convenient dental practice are encouraged to speak to the team at K&E Advanced Dentistry regarding the benefits of teeth cleanings on Saturday!
Why professional dental cleanings?
While patients may brush and floss their teeth at home every day, there are still areas of the smile that might not be properly cleaned. This can result in the development of plaque, tartar, and bacteria, putting the entire mouth at risk for problems such as dental decay or periodontal disease. The team at K&E Advanced Dentistry encourages patients to see their dentist every six months for a professional cleaning and a full examination, which may include x-rays.
Who performs the cleanings?
Our professional hygienists perform dental cleanings prior to the dentist coming in to examine the smile. Our team provided quality care to our patients and treats them like family. We are the one-stop shop for many patients in the community who are ready to achieve a more beautiful, healthy smile for life!
What happens during a professional cleaning?
- The hygienist cleans the teeth with a special power brush
- The hygienist flosses the teeth to remove food particles from between teeth
- The hygienist polishes the teeth, so they sparkle and shine!
If there are any visible concerns seen while the hygienist performs the dental cleaning, he or she will mention this to the dentist and further evaluation will be completed. In some cases, an x-ray may be taken to check the health of the smile underneath the gum line. Certain conditions can be caught early with preventative x-rays such as cavities or signs of bone loss from periodontal disease. We encourage patients to have routine examinations and x-rays to monitor their oral health over time.
Benefits of Saturday appointments
We know that life gets busy and with work, school, and after-hour activities, routine cleaning appointments may be neglected because it is too inconvenient to schedule them or take off work for a visit. Fortunately, we offer Saturday appointments for our patients to make it easier to get into the dental office for a cleaning appointment. We want our patients to know that we understand their busy lifestyles and want to help them receive cleaning when they need it to keep their smile healthy for life!
Other services available in our practice
We offer a variety of services outside of just dental cleanings. We are a practice that proudly provides general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry options. We can assess the smile during an initial evaluation and discuss with patients any concerns we may have. Our team also listens closely to our patients to determine if there are any other treatments that can be provided. For example, if a patient is self-conscious about how dull or stained their natural teeth are, we may suggest professional teeth whitening to add brilliance and beauty back to the natural tooth enamel. Additionally, patients unhappy about broken or chipped teeth can ask about the benefits of porcelain veneers or composite resin bonding to restore the smile and disguise these imperfections quickly and easily. Our team of professionals are here to listen to your concerns and provide affordable solutions.
