Regular dental visits to our practice every six months are preventive and important in making sure oral health problems - from tooth decay to oral cancer - are detected and treated promptly.
Your regular dental visits to our office include a thorough exam to check the health of your teeth and gums, an oral cancer screening to spot any suspicious signs early, and a professional cleaning to remove plaque, bacteria, and any stubborn deposits.
At Dental Care of Texas, our experienced, licensed dental hygienists will clean your teeth, and speak with you about your home care and how to ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy. Providing this type of exceptional patient care is our top priority. Our hygienists strive to provide a relaxing, stress-free environment to maintain your absolute comfort.
During your exam, we will check your teeth, soft tissues, and jaw alignment while looking for any symptoms or changes that could indicate possible problems. If potential problems are identified, we'll work with you to devise a plan to keep you and your smile healthy and happy. As always, we will explain every procedure thoroughly and answer any questions you may have. Preventive dental care is vital to minimize dental problems, regardless of your age.
Practicing good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular checkups with your dentist are proven ways you can help keep your smile bright and your teeth healthy.
Here are a few things you can do to help prevent the buildup of plaque and cavities:
- At least two times a day, brush your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste. Regular brushing removes food particles and plaque from the tooth surfaces.
- Remember to brush the top surface of your tongue; this will remove any extra plaque-causing food particles, and help to keep your breath fresh.
- Clean between your teeth by flossing at least once a day. Decay-causing bacteria can hide between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. Flossing will help remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.
