Hygiene & Check-up FAQs
How often should I get my teeth cleaned?
By and large, we recommend getting a check-up every six months. However, no two mouths are alike! At Beam St., should you require more frequent visits to either maintain or improve your oral hygiene, our team members will inform you of our recommendations and you can take it from there. The best part? Your insurance generally covers cleanings twice a year or every six months. And if you’re not sure how many cleanings you are covered for, we can help you out!
Does it hurt?
With our advanced technology and instruments, your hygiene appointment will be extremely pleasant. Our equipment allows for us to give you a superior treatment by cleaning in-between your teeth gently and thoroughly.
How do I know I am due for a cleaning?
Healthy gums are pink and do not typically bleed when brushing or flossing your teeth. We’ll use a ruler to measure the condition of your gums and determine your overall status as normal or healthy. When your gums are puffy and reddish, this is a sign that your gums are inflamed or swollen due to irritants like food debris and plaque that have not been removed from surfaces of your teeth. One telltale sign you will see is generalized bleeding. Not to worry! This is gingivitis and a thorough cleaning can reverse this.
