Dental Exams and Cleanings in Stone Oak, TX
It’s no secret that the majority of people don’t like going to the dentist. People would prefer to only have to go to the dentist if something is wrong. At EvoDent Dental in Stone Oak, TX, we’re doing everything we can to change the way people perceive the dentist’s office. We’re trying to work on creating a more relaxing atmosphere for our patients.
The goal isn’t just to make patients comfortable when they’re here for fillings or crowns. It’s to encourage them to keep up with their regular exams and cleanings. The importance of these regular visits can’t be stressed enough. Adults need to visit their dentists at least twice a year based on recent recommendations.
The Value of Regular Exams
Going to the dentist for a regular exam is like going to the doctor for an annual check-up. You don’t have any complaints, but some issues can be silent at first. During a regular exam, we’ll start by asking you if you have any complaints or any dental issues. We’ll then start examining your oral cavity.
Our exams aren’t just focused on the teeth. They also include the tongue, gums, and all areas of the mouth. We’ll look around then start to palpate. We’ve detected small cavities and treated them in patients during regular exams. Sometimes we find irregular areas that need to be biopsied to rule out cancer. There are many possibilities during regular exams. The most common scenario is that we find nothing wrong, and you’re free to go home knowing your teeth are in good shape.
The Value of Cleanings
We’ll clean your teeth during a regular check-up after examining them. Plaque and tartar can build-up over your teeth. They contain bacteria, and by hiding in plaque, toothpaste and your toothbrush can’t reach them. Build-up can’t be removed at home. It can easily be removed in our office; thanks to the tools we have at our disposal.
At EvoDent Dental, we’ll take good care of your dental health and that of your entire family. Get in touch to schedule your regular visits.
