Routine checkups aren’t a big deal for some patients, but others may dread them – or worse, avoid them – because they have a sensitive mouth or have had negative experiences with other dental practices. We make sure that your dental cleanings and exams in Calallen Corpus Christi are always comfortable with our:Keep Your Smile Healthy Read Transcript
The reason why regular care is so important is we're able to keep a track on patients’ oral health. It doesn't take long for cavities to come in and start to affect the teeth. It doesn't take long for your gums to become infected with plaque and tartar. Even if you have meticulous home care, you can still have tartar in those harder-to-reach areas of the mouth, so by coming into the office, we can go in there and address those areas, clean out those areas, make the gums and bone and teeth as healthy as possible.
We want patients to come in every three to six months. That way we can actually monitor and track their progress, work hand-in-hand with that patient in order to get them back to optimal oral care.

Stop Problems From Happening With Preventive Dental Care
- Fluoride Treatments – This simple treatment strengthens tooth enamel so it is less likely to suffer decay.
- Dental Sealants – Bacteria can get into the tiny grooves on the top surfaces of your teeth and cause cavities. Applying sealants creates a smooth surface that is less hospitable to bacteria.
- Custom Mouthguards – We can make a custom mouthguard that protects your teeth from athletic injuries. We also make mouthguards that relieve pain caused by TMJ problems and mouthguards that relieve sleep apnea symptoms by keeping your airway open throughout the night.
Technology Keeps Your Dental Cleanings Comfortable
If you’ve ever had a painful cleaning, you may be reluctant to visit our office for this service. Skipping regular cleanings is a bad idea, though, as it can result in gum disease and dental decay. Our team keeps your cleanings comfortable by using ultrasonic scalers. With high-powered vibration and cooling water, we won’t need to do as much scraping to remove bacteria-filled plaque from your teeth. We also use digital X-rays, which take less time to provide images and use less radiation too.
