At Cool Springs Family Dentistry, we use the most modern dental technology available. We are committed to giving our patients beautiful smiles they can be proud of for years to come! We strongly believe that the best foundation for a stunning smile is a healthy mouth, which is why we take general dentistry very seriously. Dr. Spencer, Dr. Hill, and our knowledgeable staff of dental professionals are dedicated to ensuring that all patients receive the most thorough care available during their dental examinations and cleanings.

The Dental Examination

The first part of a routine dental visit at our office includes taking a set of x-rays, which allows Dr. Spencer and Dr. Hill to examine the health of your teeth and underlying jaw structure. We follow the American Dental Association’s recommendations on frequency and necessity for x-rays. During your examination, Dr. Spencer, Dr. Hill, or your hygienist will use a small pick and mirror to examine each tooth for cavities, plaque and damage. You will also undergo a gum examination where your gums will be gently probed to detect any signs of gum disease. The final step in your routine dental visit at Cool Springs Family Dentistry is a head and neck examination, which allows Dr. Spencer or Dr. Hill to inspect for any potential issues with glands or joints, such as a TMJ disorder. After your thorough examination, Dr. Spencer or Dr. Hill will sit down with you to discuss the results of your exam and plan any necessary repairs or treatments.

Thorough Dental Cleaning

The second part of your routine check-up at Cool Springs Family Dentistry consists of a complete professional dental cleaning conducted by one of our gentle and caring dental hygienists. While it is recommended for adults to brush their teeth three times a day and floss once daily, the reality is that most people only brush twice daily and floss rarely.  Even the most hygiene-dedicated patients who brush and floss regularly will not ever achieve the same results as that of a deep cleaning from one of our trained dental hygienists. For the best dental health and cavity prevention, it is important to have your teeth professionally cleaned, polished, and treated with fluoride twice a year (or more depending on your specific situation).
