Friendly care, professional oral hygiene services in Thibodaux, Louisiana support minty-fresh, healthy smiles
In our corner of Lafourche Parish, hospitality isn’t history. It’s alive and well. And we at Acadia Family Dentistry have integrated that same warmth into all that we do, including oral hygiene care at the Thibodaux, Louisiana office.
Friendly (no fear) dentistry
Dr. Nhu Le’s welcoming staff and surroundings that feel less like a sterile medical facility and more like home are complemented by advanced tools. Technologies such as digital X-rays support a more gentle, safe, and comfortable experience at the dentist’s office. Likewise, should you need a little help reacquainting yourself or your family with modern, stress-free dentistry, Dr. Le is happy to discuss calming sedative options to put you at ease.
These measures are so important because good oral health is built on routine dental visits. During these visits, Dr. Le screens for abnormalities, such as suspicious lumps that may warrant further investigation by an ear, nose, and throat specialist. She also checks that your teeth, gums, and other oral structures are healthy. As needed, restorations and oral appliances are also examined to make sure they’re in good, working order. Precision diagnostics “see” what she can’t, and allow for disease and decay to be detected early when conditions are often asymptomatic and can be treated effectively, efficiently, and non-traumatically.
Home hygiene and professional cleanings go hand in hand
Many patients with healthy teeth and gums only visit us every six months. So, consistent brushing and flossing at home are important to maintain oral health. To get the most out of your dental appointment, our hygienists may discuss and identify ways to improve brushing and flossing techniques. They can also recommend products that might be beneficial to you, such as interdental brushes or floss threaders that help you to clean well under dental bridges or between crowded spaces.
Since sticky, bacterial plaque is constantly forming on your teeth and, once hardened, can’t be removed with brushes and floss, our hygienists also use specialized skills and tools to lift this stubborn tartar from around the gumline and between the teeth. Once teeth are plaque-free, professional brushes gently scrub or polish for a deep clean. Acadia Family Dentistry patients love that invigorating, minty-fresh sensation! These cleanings also present a great way to keep your smile looking its best, as they remove surface stains along with bacteria and tartar.
