Why Choose Brentwood Dental Hygiene Clinic?
What kinds of bleaching/whitening do you do in your office?
We use Spa Dent Light Activated Teeth Whitening (Sensitivity Free). The Spa-dent whitening process provides the maximum whitening benefit, in the least amount of time with virtually no sensitivity, all under the supervision of your Dental Professional. Our revolutionary gel formulation is placed in our dual arch mouth trays with the precise dosage of whitening material. Our unique blue and red LED light activates the gel, providing powerful whitening with cellular stimulation. Hydroxyl radicals penetrate the tooth enamel to break down stains into progressively smaller particles. This process will penetrate but not harm or damage the tooth enamel, including caps, crowns, and veneers. The effect whitens the whole “smile” area of a patient’s teeth. Sure there are many options out there to whiten your teeth, but none offer the level of comfort, convenience, and confidence you’ll find with Spa-Dent. No matter what stage you are at in life, you’ll appreciate how our cutting-edge approach to whitening has minimal interference in how you live but has a significant positive impact on how you look and feel about your smile.

How often should I get my teeth cleaned?
You should have your teeth cleaned at least twice a year.
But my insurance says I only get one cleaning every 9 months?
Dental Hygiene appointments are important to maintain overall oral health. For most people, it is recommended that they have a hygiene appointment every 6 months. Some people have periodontal disease or bone loss and we recommend that they come in once every 3 or 4 months.
A few insurance companies have changed their coverage to only include one “cleaning” per year. This is the insurance company’s way of saving money; they did not make this change based on any studies that proved that a dental cleaning more than once a year was not necessary.
Most plans only cover the dental exam, polish, and fluoride once every nine months. The scaling (removal of tartar) is generally covered up to 10 units or more. Most people require two or three units at a time. We recommend for those on a “nine-month” plan to still have hygiene every five months; however, one of those appointments will be scaling only. For example, the first appointment of the year will be a full cleaning and check-up and in five months’ time, we do the scaling only. Scaling is a really important part of cleaning. Getting rid of the tarter build-up is what keeps the gums healthy. Having scaling done every five months still allows you to have two cleanings per year.
Why is preventive care important?
The best way to avoid dental problems is proper home care every day, regular dental visits, and preventive hygiene care. Detecting problems early saves you suffering, saves dollars and saves time, and prevents more serious problems from developing.
