Dental Cleanings and Exams
Our dentists recommend regular cleanings and checkups every six months. Regular brushing and flossing are simply not enough to remove the micro bacteria and tartar which can accumulate in hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. At Houston Dental Smiles our staff will assist you in taking any necessary x-rays to check your mouth and cavities for any other problems. We have highly trained hygienists that are ready to clean and polish your teeth gently. Regular cleanings are crucial in maintaining high oral hygiene and preventing teeth decay.
Another benefit of routine dental cleanings and exams is that it can help in discovering periodontal gum disease. Periodontal gum disease is inflammation and infection of the gums and near the supporting bone. Untreated periodontal disease can cause permanent jaw bone problems and potential tooth loss. Our hygienists determine the health of your gums and educate our patients on the type of cleaning that is recommended. Our best interest is happy and healthy smiles!
