Dental Cleaning Reviews
"I really dislike the dentist. Some people dislike clowns I can't stand the dentist. I've been traumatized with picks, needles and drills. I found Tupelo smiles after I left my dentist for lack of communication. How can u talk to me about x-rays when ur behind me talking to the back of my head, I can't see you and you haven't even shown me what ur talking about?? So sat in Tupelo Smiles office beside the Keurig machine, looking at the saltwater fish tank, filling out my for...m on their HP tablet thinking great here we go again another money bleeding dentist. I meet the staff who are very friendly but still not my dentist. Several employees have been there >20 yrs. Impressive. Answered a bunch of questions of course asked me about tooth whitening and $4000 braces. Waiting. Then in comes the dentist? Where's the hygienist, just clean my teeth and be done with it..... He proceeds to discuss things with me and does one of the most thorough exams ever checking for oral cancer? Wow that's a first. He explains everything he's looking at. What's the catch? I know he's gonna order these big x-rays and bill my insurance. Nope he's gonna get them from the other dentist and just get a couple for a cavity survey. Surprising. Then they put a lead protector on me and a thyroid protector? I haven't seen one of those since medical training. No dental office ever has protected my thyroid. Being in the medical field I've asked several times about radiation exposure and was told nowadays it's less than UV exposure of the sun. So why do u still leave the room? Last but not least he pulls out his Canon looking camera and takes several close up gum and teeth pics to keep on file. Then I get a complementary tooth mold and whitening kit. ??? No charge. I didn't even get a cleaning. My next visit will be a thorough cleaning with discussion of x-rays. Wow. Dr. Caron earned his title of DMD. He gained my trust and established a great relationship. Tupelo smiles is very thorough, caring and concerned for your well being. This is the first "physician of teeth" I've ever truly met. Thank you Tupelo......just another reason to love living here."- R.W. / Facebook / Jun 04, 2015

The American Dental Association (ADA) suggests people receive professional dental cleanings two times each year. Infants should have their first visit to the dentist before they turn a year old. Following that, family dentists Doctors Richard Caron and John Kenney will help you decide when your child is ready for their next appointment. A professional cleaning can help you avoid cavities since built-up bacterial plaque, the biggest cause of tooth decay and gum (periodontal) disease, is removed. A cleaning will also remove tartar and stains from the teeth. If you want to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, boost your health, and save money in the long run, schedule a cleaning for your whole family at Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.
What To Expect
Your cleaning will begin by addressing the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth. While plaque is soft and can be removed rather easily with thorough home care hygiene techniques, tartar is more tenacious and difficult to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Special instruments are used to carefully and gently remove plaque and tartar without affecting the enamel. First, our team may utilize a device with ultrasonic technology to loosen large pieces of plaque and tartar with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Next, handheld tools, such as a scaler or curette, will be applied to remove smaller deposits. Every tooth will be treated individually to eliminate all of the tartar and plaque buildup. After the teeth are clean, your enamel will be polished to remove surface stains and provide a smooth feel. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment can be completed after your cleaning.
Doctors Caron and Kenney may suggest cleanings more frequently for some patients, including those with concerns such as periodontal (gum) disease. During your treatment, our skilled dental hygienists can help you design a routine for good oral health at home by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that can address your needs. Keeping up with routine preventive dental cleanings at Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is advantageous for your teeth and overall health and may save you from needing more extensive and costlier care in the future.
