The dentists at Smile Dental Clinics recommend following these steps for effective daily oral health care. Tooth brushing and flossing help control the plaque and bacteria that cause dental disease.

Tooth Brushing: Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is recommended for everyone. It is especially important to brush your teeth right before going to bed. The toothbrush you use should be ADA approved with soft bristles. Electronic toothbrushes are also recommended because they are easy to use and effectively remove plaque.

Flossing: Daily flossing is the most effective way to clean your teeth as well as the areas under your gum line. Flossing at least once a day helps prevent the growth of plaque colonies, making it harder for the plaque to damage your gums, teeth and bone.

Depending on your dental care history, your dentist or hygienist may recommend another daily dental care routine.

Smile Dental Clinics recommends you schedule a dental exam and cleaning appointment at least twice a year. Your dentist or dental hygienist may recommend more frequent visits.
Regularly scheduled dental exams help maintain your overall dental health and prevent dental problems that could come up in the future. The dentists and dental hygienists also check and monitor other dental issues, including the following:

  • Medical history
  • Previous diagnostic x-ray examination
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Gum disease evaluation
  • Examination of existing dental work and tooth decay
  • Removal of tartar and plaque
  • Oral hygiene recommendations

There are several methods available for patients to use in order to acquire a whiter, brighter smile. It is crucial to have your dentist evaluate your teeth to determine which whitening procedure would most benefit your smile.

The following are the two most widely used teeth whitening systems:

  1. At-Home Teeth Whitening: Most at-home teeth whitening systems come in a gel form that is put into a custom-fitted mouth guard (also known as a tray) that is molded to the shape of your teeth. The gel-filled trays can be worn overnight while you sleep or during the day. The amount of time the trays are required to remain in your mouth depends, although typically, trays are worn twice a day for around 30 minutes each session. This type of whitening procedure can take several weeks before you see results.
  2. In-Office Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening performed at a dental office may require more than one visit, each lasting anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. You will instantly see results with this type of procedure. The bleaching solution used by the dentist is applied to your teeth, and your gums are completely protected. Some patients experience tooth sensitivity after having their teeth bleached in a dental office, but this typically wears off within a few days.

Update : 5/11/20. I just cant say how amazing Dr. Harsini is he is so attentive, detailed- i had to get a little work done, and when i say no pain! No pain what so ever. Having the patient in a comfortable stat seems to be one of his priority and the staff too. Kudos to Jose the assistant too,was great. Just beyond impressed!!!Today was my first time in this office, after over 9years going to Thomas dental in Phoenix. From the day I made a call to set my first appt- the lady was so nice and sweet.. I wanted to reach thru the phone and hug her. I got a lil tour in the office they explained what each area is for. The Dr. Was just amazing wonderful.. didn't waste time but took the time to chat a lil with me, which was nice. Daisy was amazing and super sweet. Prices are FANTASTIC! Reason why I left Thomas dental is because they quality of service is not like it was before AND not to mention new management tried to pull as fast one on me. Tried to tell my my treatment was over 1,200!!! And smile dental less then 200.00That was disgusting and they tried doing the same thing to my son. We have been patients for years. New management is money hungry very sad.But thankful I found smile dental. Oh and another bonus- their equipment is pretty high tech!! Love it.

Best dental services I’ve had in some time. I’d been without 2 molars for over 5 years and after I got them implanted, they fit perfectly and felt like they’d been there the whole time. Thanks for making eating easier again!

I have gotten my preventative care with Luis done at this practice as well as an implant crown. After waiting 2.5 years to get that crown (life happens), Dr. Harsini and team did an expert job at designing and making sure my crown was perfect. It fits so well and I am FINALLY able to smile confidently again!! Being in the dental field myself, I was so happy to have my smile back. Thank you!!
