Checkups and Cleanings FAQs
What is the typical procedure during a dental cleaning?
With the small mirror to guide them, our dental hygienist uses a scaler to get rid of plaque and tartar around your gum line, as well as in between your teeth. You’ll hear scraping, but this is normal. The more tartar there is in your mouth, the more time they’ll need to scrape a particular spot.
Why should I get a dental cleaning?
Dental cleanings are very important, and they are vital if you wish to maintain a healthy, beautiful, and functional smile. These appointments deeply clean your smile, eliminate risks associated with gum disease, and prevent major dental problems. This cleaning process is only available in our Lauderhill Dental Office—not at home.
Does a dental check up include a clean?
There are 2 parts to a regular dental visit – check up, or examination and the cleaning, or oral prophylaxis. At the dental check our dentists will check for cavities. X-rays might be taken to detect cavities between your teeth. The exam will also include a check for plaque and tartar on your teeth.
How long should a dentist check up take?
What happens during a dental check up? There’s no need to feel nervous about attending a dental check up appointment. If there are no issues, it should only take around 10 minutes – or a little longer if there are any problems that need attention.
What does dental check up involve?
At each check-up, our dentist should: examine your teeth, gums and mouth. ask about your general health and any problems you’ve had with your teeth, mouth or gums since your last visit. Ask about, and give you advice on, your diet, smoking and alcohol use, and teeth-cleaning habits.
Does deep cleaning require anesthesia?

Is deep cleaning of teeth painful?
Most patients report that dental scaling and planing is not nearly as painful or scary as it sounds. If large pockets have formed between your teeth and gums, our dentists in Lauderhill, FL may also perform what is called “pocket reduction surgery” during your deep cleaning procedure.
Why does dental cleaning hurt so much?
Inflammation in the gums, tooth decay and other symptoms of oral disease can lead to increased sensitivity. This can cause pain when prodded during the cleaning process. In these cases, it is important to be open with your Lauderhill dentist. Even the most challenging cleanings can be painless.

Teeth cleanings are essential because they remove hardened plaque from your teeth along with stains and tartar that regular brushing and flossing are not able to remove. Plaque and buildup can only be removed with specialized dental tools
Is teeth cleaning necessary every 6 months?
Having your teeth professionally cleaned every 6 months allows the hygienist to remove stains and plaque from your teeth that your tooth brush and floss might miss. The missed plaque eventually hardens on the teeth into tartar.

The Dental Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin material with adhesives and a high intensity curing light. The procedure gets its name because the materials are attached to the tooth. The joint is generally used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth.
Crown and Bridges
Crowns and dental bridges are more permanent solutions for damaged or missing teeth. They are attached to your own teeth or implants to improve the appearance, alignment or strength of your teeth. Luxe Dental Dentists can work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan and perform crown and bridge dental services to restore your smile and confidence.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
A simple extraction of teeth involves the removal of a tooth that is visible in the mouth. This could mean removing a damaged or decayed tooth, or removing teeth before receiving the brakes.
Inside your tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, you will find a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help the root of your tooth grow during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues that surround it.
