  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

Are Regular Dental Cleanings Really Necessary?

Dental Cleaning Lafayette LAAre you one of those patients that keeps their teeth impeccably clean? Do you brush and floss your teeth regularly, even obsessively, because you value your health and want to keep your teeth forever? We cherish our patients who need little encouragement to take care of their teeth at home. We know that you do your very best to remove plaque and bacteria and the diligent home brushers tend to be our healthiest patients. 

Sometimes one of our best brushers asks, “If my they are not dirty, why do I need to have a dental cleaning?” That’s a legitimate question, so we want to provide an accurate answer.

Did you know that no matter how much you brush and floss, you can never reach every surface of your teeth? A dental cleaning helps to reach those places that brushing and flossing miss. Areas between your teeth and behind your teeth pose challenges for even the most diligent patients.

Our hygienists have received the training and skills necessary to gently remove all traces of plaque and bacteria from every surface of your teeth. Their skills combined with precision instruments can complement your home care in the prevention of common oral diseases such as decay and periodontal disease.

Additionally, close monitoring of your oral health by our dentists and hygienists means that if a problem with your oral health does arise that we can address it quickly and before it poses a greater risk to your health.

While we encourage and appreciate our patients with exceptional home care routines, we want to remind you that home care is not enough and dental cleanings and periodic exams go a long way to protecting your dental health in the long term.
