What Happens During Your Dental Checkup?

Your semi-annual visits with us are divided into two parts, the checkup, and the cleaning. During your oral examination, we’ll start by checking the health of your gums and teeth, in search of any tell-tale signs of gum disease, like inflammation, swelling, and recession. We’ll also be on the lookout for any common oral health issues like dental decay.

After that, we’ll complete an oral cancer screening where we’ll look for any abnormalities such as lumps, sores that won’t heal, or patches on the inside of your mouth. We’ll also inspect your head, throat, face, and neck in search of signs of the disease. When it’s spotted early on, there’s a higher chance of successfully treating it, which is why we conduct a screening each time you visit us.

What Happens During Your Teeth Cleaning?

The last part of your visit is your professional cleaning. While you lay back, relax, and watch something of your choosing on our ceiling-mounted televisions, we get to work cleaning. You’ll hardly even notice that we’re there. If you’re especially nervous about your dental cleaning, we offer sedation dentistry to put you at ease. During this, we’ll use a special tool called a scaler to remove plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach places that you can’t get to with a regular toothbrush. We’ll use a substance called prophylaxis paste that feels slightly gritty and, safely polishes your teeth and removes any surface stains. Finally, we’ll finish off by flossing between your teeth to remove food particles or debris.

Why is Routine Dental Care Important?

There are so many benefits to keeping up with routine dental care. It can reduce your risk of experiencing an emergency and having to carve out time from your busy schedule to visit us. Instead, you can choose to schedule a visit on your own time every six months to prevent serious oral health problems from ever occurring in the first place. Here are a few ways getting routine checkups and cleanings can help keep your mouth in tip-top shape:

  • Detect oral cancer before it’s too late to treat it successfully.

  • Remove plaque and tartar buildup to prevent cavities from forming.
  • Spot and treat gum disease before it causes permanent damage to your mouth.

  • Keep bad oral habits under control by informing us of how they impact your oral health.
  • Find hidden problems with dental X-rays.

Nobody ever really wants to visit their dentist in Frisco, but our team of professionals will help you feel comfortable, relaxed, and well taken care of. We’re dedicated to making your life a little easier by preventing minor problems like cavities, from turning into major ones, like an infected tooth. Contact us today to schedule your visit!
