Why Checkups and Cleanings Matter
Preventative Dental Care
Preventative dentistry keeps your teeth and gums healthy. A professional teeth cleaning every six months helps you fight cavities and periodontal disease. Your dentist can also screen for early signs of other dental health issues during these biannual visits.
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.
DENTAL HAUS GERMANTOWN
IS FOUNDED ON THE GUIDING PRINCIPLES
of outstanding patient care and thorough communication.
Did You Know...
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in four American adults has at least one untreated cavity. Regular teeth cleanings allow us to prevent cavities from happening or treat tooth decay in its earliest stages.
What We Strive for When Patients Come for a Checkup
Brushing and flossing is essential for a healthy smile, but they are not enough alone. When a professional regularly examines and cleans your teeth, they are much more likely to catch early signs of oral health problems.
In addition to teeth cleanings, our Nashville team helps you understand what we're doing and why. That context 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 Nashville, TN, 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 gums. 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:
"Clean, professional, everyone was very nice, and the standard dental cleaning I got was done very well as far as I could tell.

How To Maintain a Healthy Smile After Your Teeth Cleaning
Brush Your Teeth Gently
Everyone knows that regular, thorough brushing is key to good dental health. However, it's possible to over-brush. Using too much pressure can actually wear down your gums and enamel, inviting future health issues. Our Nashville dentists recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and watching to make sure the bristles aren't wearing out too quickly. This can be a sign of over-brushing.
Brush Your Tongue
Brushing and flossing your teeth will eliminate countless cavity-causing bacteria from your mouth, but if you don't brush your tongue as well, you won't get the full benefits of your oral hygiene routine. The tongue also hosts food particles and bacteria that can lead to decay, gum disease, and bad breath. Use a small amount of toothpaste and brush your tongue as far back as possible for a more thorough cleaning.
Watch What You Eat
It goes without saying that sugary drinks and snacks can lead to tooth decay, but it's important to remember that acidic beverages can also damage your smile. We recommend consuming beverages like coffee and wine in moderation, as they can weaken your enamel. You don't have to cut sugars and acids out of your diet entirely—just consume them sparingly, and be sure to brush afterwards.
