Checkups & Cleanings

 

Routine dental care is incredibly important to the health of your entire mouth. The American Dental Association recommends that everyone should visit the dentist for a checkup and cleaning at least once a year, twice a year being the most optimal. Dental checkups and cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral health as well as overall general health. At Dentistry of Highland Village, we are committed to providing our general dentistry  to all of our patients to keep their mouths healthy and beautiful for years to come.

Daily brushing and flossing are essential elements of keeping your teeth healthy at home, but they alone are not enough. During a dental cleaning and checkup, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth to remove damaging plaque and tartar that has built up. Your teeth, gums, tongue and tissues will be thoroughly examined to look for problems. The dental professionals at Dentistry of Highland Village provide all patients exceptional checkups and cleanings in order to catch, address and prevent major issues within the mouth.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

At Dentistry of Highland Village, we take the time to ensure that all of our patients receive the comprehensive dental care that they need. While some dentists are known to rush through appointments with patients, we take care to listen to the concerns of our patients in order to provide the highest level of care. Through our comprehensive dental exams, we are able to provide the best dental care as well as part of your overall health care. Many medical issues are actually present inside the mouth before they appear in other parts of the body. Conditions such as diabetes, leukemia and cancer often present signs and symptoms inside the mouth before they are found in other parts of the body. Through our comprehensive dental exams, not only are we able to ensure your oral health, but we are also able to detect many other issues in order to provide the highest quality care.

Routine Dental Cleanings

Routine dental cleanings are the most important parts of your oral hygiene. Routine dental cleanings are professional cleanings that rid the teeth and gums of damaging plaque and tartar. Plaque is a bacteria-laden substance that is made up of millions of bacteria and acids that eat away at the tooth enamel. When it is not removed through a professional cleaning, plaque can cause irreversible damage. Dentistry of Highland Village is proud to provide routine dental cleanings to our patients in order to protect and maintain their oral health. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
