Knowing the status of your oral health is incredibly important. That’s why you will probably not have your teeth cleaned during your first visit. After we have your x-ray and exam results, we will know how to more effectively and compassionately care for your individual needs.

Just like any doctor, we need to gain knowledge of your health before treating any conditions. This gives you the respect and specific attention your health deserves.

As always, please feel free to call us at (865) 637-5708 with any questions!

Prepare for Your Next Visit


How can you keep your teeth and mouth healthy? By visiting Premier Dental in Knoxville regularly for checkups and teeth cleaning. This does 2 things: keeps your mouth healthy, and saves you money in the long run by helping to avoid costly problems.

Your Regular Dental Cleaning

Your dental hygienist may refer to your 6-month cleaning as “prophylaxis,” or “prophy.” Regular dental hygienist appointments are for long-term maintenance of good oral health.

If you keep your scheduled appointment, you have a much better chance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums. And, your teeth will feel clean!

Each teeth cleaning appointment includes a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums. It may also include an oral cancer screening if you are at risk.

Many patients also receive a fluoride treatment to strengthen and protect their teeth. This is often presented as an option, and it is one we highly recommend.

I’ve been diagnosed with periodontal disease. What’s next for me?

The bad news is that this gum disease can be frustrating and is all-too-common. The good news is that we can treat it!

Patients diagnosed with periodontal disease also come in for regular appointments besides their twice-yearly hygienist appointment. We try to schedule periodontal disease maintenance appointments around 3 months apart. During these visits, patients receive their prescribed scaling and root planing procedure. We often call this a “deep cleaning.” Deep cleaning removes buildup and strips away infected areas from your gums and the roots of your teeth.

Here’s why you should stick to your prescribed periodontal treatment schedule: it can keep you from added expense later on.
