Dental Cleanings in Dallas, Texas
We recommend visiting your dentist for a professional cleaning every 6 months. Why is daily brushing and flossing not enough?
For professional dental cleanings, we use strong, gritty toothpaste that cleans your teeth more effectively than the average toothpaste you use every day. Our special toothpaste also has added fluoride to help strengthen your enamel and fight off bacteria and decay. Using this strong toothpaste with our high-powered dental toothbrush we can effectively remove any plaque and tartar that has built up over time, especially in tight, hard-to-reach spots.
Overtime, plaque buildup has the potential to turn into periodontal or gum disease. Gum disease is a serious dental issue that if not taken care of can escalate into a serious health problem.
At your bi-yearly dental cleaning, we also scan your teeth and gums for any abnormalities or potential problems. After your teeth are cleaned, your dentist will perform an oral examination to diagnose any cavities or dental issues.
Attending your bi-yearly cleanings and oral examinations is one of the best ways to prevent dental problems from arising and immediately treating any cavities when they do occur. One common mistake that patients often make is waiting to come in to see the dentist until there is an obvious problem. This can cost unnecessary time, money, and pain to the patient that could have easily been avoided.
