Dental Exams & Cleanings Coppell, TX
One of the keys to maintaining good oral health is to visit the dentist (at least) twice a year for a routine exam and cleaning. We are proud to serve the community of Coppell, TX to keep mouths clean and healthy.
Dental Exams Coppell
When is the last time your family had dental exams in Coppell, TX? When you visit us for a general appointment, we will perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, and overall oral health. We’ll check for signs of plaque and cavities and, to be thorough, will evaluate the health of your gums as well. Being thorough can show us any signs of developing dental issues such as periodontal (gum) disease that can later lead to tooth decay and even tooth loss. Following this evaluation, an x-ray may be taken – this is usually done once a year.
Dental Cleanings Coppell
Interested in our dental cleanings in Coppell, TX? After the exam, we will perform a general tooth cleaning. The cleaning will begin with the removal of plaque and tartar along the gum line as well as between the teeth. Following this, the hygienist will brush your teeth with a high-powered electric toothbrush. The toothpaste used at the dentist office differs from the one you use at home in that it has a gritty consistency that gently scrubs and polishes the teeth and removes any remaining traces of tartar. The cleaning ends with an expert flossing, which removes any leftover plaque or toothpaste and also alerts the hygienist of any problem areas where you might be bleeding from the gums. You’ll need to rinse your mouth at the end of the cleaning, to get rid of any debris. Schedule your dental cleanings in 75019 today!
Following Your Dental Exam & Cleaning Treatment
You may also receive a fluoride treatment, depending on what was requested at that appointment. Before you leave, your Coppell, TX dentist will usually want to talk with you about the condition of your mouth and teeth, discussing any problems he or she might have found and what can be done to maintain good oral health.
