Preventative Dental Care

Setting Long-Term Goals

Each teeth cleaning is an opportunity to plan ahead. We can offer hygiene advice to help prevent various dental health problems. We can also develop custom treatment plans for TMJ disorders, malocclusion, and more advanced or involved wellness needs.


of outstanding patient care and thorough communication.

Payton was the hygienist who performed my x-rays and teeth cleaning. She was extremely thorough and meticulously cleaned every tooth--which they apparently needed badly

Experience the Benefits

Healthy Teeth and Gums

Regular teeth cleaning at our dental practice can help you keep your teeth and gums healthy by getting rid of plaque and tartar. This can prevent tooth decay and gum disease, which reduces your risk of needing more extensive dental treatments like root canals, tooth extractions, or even restorations like dentures. 

Save Money

Your wallet will thank you when you invest in preventative care. Regular cleanings and exams every six months don't just help you prevent more extensive dental concerns; they give your dentist a chance to catch issues before they become worse, which saves you money. 

A Beautiful Smile

A healthy smile is a beautiful smile. Because form follows function in dentistry, you can expect that your properly maintained smile will look better than it otherwise would. Meanwhile, we offer many cosmetic dentistry treatments such as teeth whitening to enhance the natural beauty of your smile.

Better Overall Health

Issues like gum disease and infection can affect your overall health. Studies have shown that gum disease and tooth decay may increase your risk of stroke, blood clots, heart attacks, and more. Protect your overall health by preventing gingivitis and other oral health issues.

When You Come for a Checkup, You Can Expect:


Daily brushing and flossing are essential for a healthy smile, but they are not enough. When a professional regularly examines and cleans your teeth, they are much more likely to catch early signs of oral health problems. They can also make sure and clean the hard-to-reach areas you may have missed between visits.


In addition to teeth cleanings, our Nashville team helps you understand what we're doing and why. This education can be empowering for your own oral hygiene practices.


We want you to feel good every time you visit the dentist and work with our hygienists. You will always be welcome at Dental Haus Germantown, whether you're in our office or when a question comes up between visits.

OUR ADVANCED TOOLS Make Teeth Cleaning a Breeze

Many people put off their routine cleanings and exams due to fear of pain and long appointments. At our practice, we use modern dental technology that makes your care more comfortable and efficient.

Even simple teeth cleanings are enhanced through advanced technology at our practice. The Cavitron Ultrasonic Scaler is a small handheld teeth cleaning tool that uses adjustable vibrations and water flow to comfortably clean the teeth and gum line. The Cavitron can be set to a low vibration and soothing warm water output to minimize sensitivity while providing a thorough cleaning. We also use digital X-rays to detect any issues that may not yet be visible.

Our job is to keep your smile healthy and beautiful while using the best tools and techniques that dentistry has to offer.  If you're due for your six-month cleaning and checkup, consider a dentist who puts your comfort first. You can request an appointment by sending us a message online or calling:

"DH Germantown fully changed the dentist experience game. I absolutely love the staff here. Everyone is so friendly & attentive. Added bonus - the office space is comfortable & chic. Makes you feel like you’re at a spa vs a dr office. Took my anxiety of going to dentist away completely. 10/10 recommend." Meghan Kane, 5-Star Google Review

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Cleaning

Q. Does getting your teeth cleaned hurt?

A. No. Some people with sensitive teeth or gum irritation may experience some mild discomfort, but it should not be painful. It is important to communicate with our team if you feel any pain or discomfort so we can address those concerns promptly. 

Q. Can I get my teeth cleaned if I am pregnant?

A. Yes. It is not only safe but recommended that expectant mothers undergo cleanings and exams. Pregnancy hormones can cause gum swelling, which can cause gum inflammation and lead to buildup. Regular cleanings can help. Elective treatments like teeth whitening should wait until after you have the baby. Be sure to inform the staff at our Nashville practice if you are pregnant or breastfeeding so we can make adjustments to your treatment as needed. 

Q. Are cleanings covered by insurance?

A. Preventative care like dental cleanings and exams are usually covered by dental insurance. We will verify your coverage before any treatment. We currently work with Aetna, Ameritas, Cigna, Delta Dental, Guardian, Humana, MetLife, Principal, Sunlife, and United Health Care.

Q. Do I still need professional cleanings if I have dentures?

A. Yes. Regular cleanings and exams are still important if you have restorations like dentures. Even replacement teeth need a healthy foundation!
