Why Dental Cleanings are Essential

Do you ever wonder why your dentist recommends you come back to see them every six months? Not only to we enjoy seeing you, but regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums.  It’s also up to you to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy between those visits. Plaque and tartar can build up in a very short time if good oral hygiene is not practiced. If not treated, plaque can lead to gum disease.

After your dental exam we will perform a dental cleaning which consist of:

  • Checking the cleanliness of your teeth and gums
  • Removing any plaque and tartar
  • Polishing your teeth
  • Flossing between your teeth
  • Reviewing recommended brushing and flossing techniques

Once we are finished with your cleaning, we’ll tell you more about the health of your teeth and gums and make any recommendations we feel is warranted.  Remember, by seeing our staff at Brogdon Dental on a routine basis (at least every 6 months) and following our recommendations of good, daily oral hygiene practices, you can be sure that you will keep your teeth and gums healthy. And isn’t that what it’s all about?

Freedom

When we think of the month of July, we usually think of Independence Day… the 4th of July. But do we think about all the freedoms we have in this country?  One of the freedoms we have is the ability to go to the dentist.  In many countries, dentist and dental opportunities are non-existent.  We in America, take often these conveniences for granted, but we should be thankful that most cities and even small towns offer dentist that can help you keep your smile looking great and will be there for you during any dental emergencies.

When you reflect on your blessings and the great freedoms we experience in our country, let’s not forget to be thankful for our dentist and dental hygienist that work hard to make sure we have the best smile possible. Thank you Dr. Brogdon and Dr. McKinney for your service.

Dr. Brogdon has been my dentist for over 20 years and I feel lucky to have him and his staff taking care of my dental needs. He keeps up with the latest techniques and always answers any questions I may have in a clear manner.  Thomas G.

I’ve been going to Dr. Brogdon’s office for many years! Dr. Brogdon, Bethany, and Tina are amazingnous! I highly recommend them for ALL of your dental needs. They are so warm, friendly, kind, compassionate, and “baby” you when necessary. I LOVE you guys! Thank you so much for being who you are & for being the VERY BEST dentist in Chattanooga! Signed: A very Happy, Healthy, & Pretty SMILE

I’ve been going to Brogdon Dental since moving to Chattanooga 24 years ago. I picked them out of the phone book because they were close to home and feel that I lucked out tremendously which is why I’ve never changed dental professionals ever since. I’ve had fillings as well as crowns over the years and have never, ever had a problem. The staff has always been wonderful, approachable and appreciative of our (my husband goes here too) business. I’ve never felt more confident that our dental needs will successfully be met with Dr. Brogdon and Angela (our hygienist) . He keeps up with all new techniques and advances in dentistry. If Brogdon Dental weren’t top notch, we wouldn’t have stuck with them for 24 years even though now we live some distance away.  Evelyn G.
