Spring has finally arrived! We can look forward to warmer weather, longer days, and a chance to get out more. With so many changes in the air, what better time to schedule a visit with your Dallas, TX, dentist? With a routine exam and cleaning, you can start the new season with a healthy new smile. Find out why these routine visits are so vital for your smile’s health and appearance.
New Season, New Smile
With spring and summer come more outdoor events, more socializing, and a chance to show off your smile. So, now is the perfect time to see your dentist about your smile concerns. If you have stains, we may suggest teeth whitening. We can treat cavities and damage using lifelike fillings and crowns. With root canal therapy, we can restore infected teeth, and our dental implants offer natural looking solutions to tooth loss. In order to ensure your comfort throughout these procedures, we also provide sedation dentistry.
Checkups and Cleanings
Your journey toward a new and beautiful smile begins with an exam and cleaning. During the exam, we will employ advanced technology, such as digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, to obtain detailed pictures of your smile and perform a precise diagnosis. We look for signs of common oral health issues, such as tooth decay, gingivitis, gum disease, TMJ disorder, bruxism, and oral cancer. The earlier we identify a problem, the sooner we can prescribe treatment, often addressing issues before they threaten your smile’s health and stability.
We next clean your teeth, which means removing all plaque and tartar from your smile. The process of removing plaque means reducing the risk of cavities and periodontal issues, such as gingivitis and gum disease. You also enjoy fresher breath and brighter teeth. We suggest a routine visit every six months for most patients, although those with high risk factors for gum disease may benefit from visits every three to four months.
If we uncover signs of trouble during your exam, then we will create a personalized treatment plan to address these issues. The plan targets the parts of your smile that require repair or restoration, and will be implemented at your convenience. We can discuss insurance and financing, and answer any questions you may have about the process.
