A preventive approach to dentistry means you can often avoid serious concerns like tooth decay and gum disease. Part of this preventive approach involves a routine checkup and cleaning visit every six months. Our Aubrey, TX, dental office understands the importance of this preventive approach, and wants to help kids and adults alike in our community maintain their strongest smiles!
Dental Exams for Kids and Adults
A preventive visit is the first step to maintaining optimal oral health and a brighter smile. We recommend a visit for kids and adults at least once every six months. For adults, our team can offer an oral cancer screening once a year. For kids, we can apply fluoride treatments and dental sealants to help protect them from cavities. For both, we will watch for common issues like cavities, infection, or even gingivitis and gum disease. Since serious concerns take months to form, a regular visit allows us to catch and address them in the earliest stages. We want to offer these visits to maintain optimal oral health, and ensure you feel great about the appearance of your smile.
Everyone Needs a Dental Cleaning
In the same visit, we will also take time to clean the teeth, a process that helps kids and adults alike. Over time, plaque buildup will coat our teeth and harden into plaque. While brushing and flossing can limit the severity of buildup only a professional cleaning can remove these layers completely. Treatment is crucial as without removal, these layers can increase the risk of bad breath, teeth stains, cavities, and even gingivitis and gum disease. The process is simple. With an ultrasonic scaling device and a pick, we will remove all plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth. We then polish the teeth for a brighter appearance.
When to See Our Team
Our goal is to protect your smile from the onset of serious concerns. But what if you begin to notice an aching tooth, or sore, bleeding gums in between your six-month appointments? When you have persistent discomfort that doesn’t fade after a day or two, let us know right away. We can offer diagnosis to find out if you or your children need treatment, and offer care to keep your smile healthy and comfortable. If you have any questions about how we safeguard smiles of all ages with preventive dental care, then contact us today. We look forward to scheduling your next checkup and cleaning.
