Schedule Your Next Teeth Cleaning!

man before teeth cleaning

Have you had a dental cleaning recently? If it has been longer than a year since your last checkup, we suggest scheduling one right away. By receiving a cleaning and examination every six months, you can prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other concerns from taking hold. And when they do occur, routine checkups lead to more conservative treatment as they are caught earlier. This can mean the difference between placing a small dental filling or a more substantial crown when repairing an injured tooth. A preventive attitude toward your oral health requires both daily at-home hygienic habits and professional care because there are certain threats you cannot handle on your own. We have the tools necessary to remove calcified plaque or tartar, that your brush cannot clean. Remember, it is never too late to get back in the habit of regular dental checkups!

At your Katy, TX, dental practice, your healthy smile makes us proud! That’s because we look forward to keeping your teeth clean with regular attendance. By visiting biannually, we can create a dental record that alerts us to sudden changes in your smile’s appearance. If we detect an active threat, we can schedule a follow-up appointment to provide the appropriate treatment and return your smile’s health!

Preventing Cavities And Gum Disease At The Dentist

When your teeth are healthy, their outer enamel layer takes on the pressure of your bite and prevents oral bacteria from damaging more sensitive inner layers. You maintain healthy enamel by regularly brushing and flossing deposits that gather on and between teeth in your smile. However, neglecting your hygiene can lead to bacteria creating acidic byproducts that wear down the tooth’s structure. Eventually, permanent holes fill and you become susceptible to painful infections. By making healthier choices at mealtime, you can reduce the material that bacteria feed upon. Try to limit the amount of sugar you consume each day and avoid overly acidic food and drink.

A Therapy For Periodontal Disease

If you have gum tissues that become inflamed or bleed consistently, we can place you on a periodontal maintenance schedule to lessen your symptoms. By cleaning bacterial deposits both above and below your gumline, we remove the material that causes your body’s inflammatory process. This allows the tissues to stabilize and reattach to your teeth’s roots, lowering your risk of destabilizing the connection between tooth and jawbone.
