Teeth Cleaning in Houston, TX
Remember to add one of your bi-annual visits at Dr. Cabrera Dental Associates to your spring cleaning to-do list. A professional teeth cleaning in Houston, at least two times per year, will help improve your oral health. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) it is an important part of your regular oral health routine.
Our Houston dentists at Dr. Cabrera Dental Associates strongly recommends that patients receive a dental cleaning every six months. This professional cleaning will reinforce your at-home oral health regime of brushing and flossing. Also, it gives your dentist an opportunity to monitor your mouth for changes or areas that need special attention.
Patients, who take care of their teeth with good oral hygiene at home, typically experience no discomfort during a professional dental cleaning. Those who endure pain and sensitivity during a cleaning are typically those who neglect their teeth and gums. Discomfort usually goes along with poor oral hygiene habit. In such cases, we may use a topical anesthetic to alleviate any discomfort before the dental cleaning. Preventive services during your cleaning may include:
- Plaque and tartar removal
- Stain removal
- Fluoride treatment
- Dental sealants
- Teeth polishing
- Adjustment and cleaning of dentures and partials
During a cleaning at our Houston dental office, you may receive both diagnostic and preventive services as well as any necessary educational information. Common diagnostic services may include:
- Updating medical history data, this typically includes records of pregnancy, diabetes, heart conditions, and medications. Basically, anything that can impact oral health.
- Examination and screening for oral cancer
- Assessment of gums
- Review biting and chewing patterns
- Examination of teeth or X-rays to detect decay
- Specialist referral if outside treatment is necessary
