When was the last time you made time to see us for a dental checkup? We want to see you and your family for a routine exam once every six months. These visits can help keep serious concerns, like tooth decay and gum disease, at bay. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, dentist talks about checkup and x-ray visits!
Your Dental Exams
As we mentioned above, we want to see you and your family twice a year. The serious oral health issues that can impact the stability and appearance of your smile, such as tooth decay and gum disease, don’t form overnight. Which means a routine exam is a chance to monitor the smile for the earliest signs of trouble so we can treat concerns before you even develop painful symptoms like toothaches or sore, bleeding gums. The team employs digital x-rays so we can obtain clear and detailed images of the smile. Our team then makes a diagnosis with precision and accuracy, and can choose a treatment to address your concerns.
We employ digital x-rays because they provide high-definition images that make a more accurate diagnosis. Gathering them uses up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-ray systems. There is also now wait for the images or development in harsh chemicals, as they’re available instantly chairside. We can walk you through the diagnosis to help you better understand your smile, and you spend less time overall in the chair. These are safe for people of all ages, and you also don’t need to wear uncomfortable bite wings as part of the process! We’re proud to offer these to ensure a more accurate diagnosis.
In the same visit, we also take time to clean your smile too. Brushing and flossing can limit the severity of plaque and tartar, but only a cleaning can remove these harmful layers completely. Removing plaque and tartar with an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual pick means a lowered risk of tooth decay, infection, gingivitis, and even gum disease. The process also offers fresher breath and brighter teeth too. We polish the smile afterward, which not only brightens teeth, but makes it harder for plaque and tartar to adhere to the teeth in between your six months visits.
If you have any questions about how our team protects your smile with a checkup and cleaning, then contact our team today to learn more. We look forward to seeing you and your family!
