While brushing and flossing your teeth is important to your dental health, it is also imperative that you visit your dentist regularly. Dr. Chamberland, Dr. Barnes, Dr. White, and our team recommend that you and your child come in for a professional dental cleaning in Shelbyville, Tennessee, at least once every six months. These appointments allow our hygienist to thoroughly clean your teeth and for our dentists to examine your gums and teeth for any issues or potential issues. In this way, dental issues can be treated while they are still minor. Other dental problems can be avoided altogether.

Professional Dental Cleaning
When you come in for your routine appointment, our hygienist will first use a small, metal tool to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then the hygienist will floss between each of your teeth. Depending on your needs, dental fluoride may be applied. Then your teeth will be polished to give them extra shine.

Dental Exam
Then our dentists will examine your teeth and gums meticulously. They will check your gums for signs of gum disease and other issues. Our dentists will then perform an oral cancer screening. They will decide whether or not you need dental X-rays taken.

We welcome you to contact Chamberland Dentistry at 931-684-9167 today to learn more about teeth cleaning in Shelbyville, Tennessee, and to schedule your next visit.
