Dental Exams & Checkups in Denison, TX
Identifying & Addressing Oral Health Concerns Early
While you already know how important it is to brush and floss your teeth every day, did you know it’s just as important to see a dentist regularly? That’s because common oral health hazards can crop up even with diligent at-home oral hygiene. In fact, it’s impossible to remove all the plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth by yourself – it takes special dental instruments to remove it. The consequences of puffy gums, tartar buildup, or tooth decay could, in the end, lead to tooth loss. With prompt treatment thanks to twice-yearly dental exams and checkups, you can keep your smile sparkling and your oral health in check.
How Often Do I Need to See a Dentist?
The American Dental Association recommends seeing a dentist for an exam and cleaning every 6 months, or every 4 if you have gum disease and require periodontal maintenance. The truth is that many Americans are afflicted with oral diseases and seeing a dentist twice a year is your best bet for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Neglecting your oral hygiene could lead to disastrous consequences, but by seeing your dentist routinely, you can nip any problems in the bud and get the treatment you need to repair any damage.
What to Expect at Your First Appointment
When you first come to the Denison Dental practice, you can expect to see a clean, tidy office and be greeted by friendly front office staff. Once you arrive, we will take any dental insurance information you have and you will fill out forms about your dental and medical history and list any concerns you have about your teeth you want our dentist to know about before the exam begins. Next, you’ll be taken for an assessment of your teeth and gums before our dentist recommends any pertinent treatment you need for optimal oral health. Time permitting, you will have a teeth cleaning, too, unless you require a follow-up visit for a lengthier deep cleaning appointment.
