Benefits of Dental Exams and Cleanings
Scheduling routine dental visits at our Katy, TX dental office can help:
- Prevent tooth decay and cavities.
- Prevent bad breath.
- Prevent gingivitis and gum disease.
- Prevent costly dental treatment.
- Improve the appearance of your smile.
- Maintain a healthy smile.
During your routine teeth cleaning appointment at our Katy dental practice, one of our skilled hygienists will use specialized dental tools to remove any plaque or tartar built up on your teeth. Once all the build-up has been removed, your hygienist will floss and polish your teeth. If you opt for fluoride treatment that will also be applied.
During your dental examination, your Katy dentist will evaluate your entire mouth (teeth, gums, tongue, etc.) to thoroughly look for signs of decay, disease, oral cancer, and any other oral health complications. Existing dental work such as fillings or crowns will also be examined to make sure they are still providing adequate protection. During your examination, a periodontal exam and x-rays will often be performed as well to check for any risks of gum disease or bone loss.
