McAllen Dental Cleanings & Exams Help You Avoid Big Oral Health Issues

Problems like cavities are easy to fix when they’re discovered in their early stages. Left untreated, though, oral health concerns usually become more complicated and costly. Given the importance of early detection, few services are more important than your dental cleanings and exams in McAllen.

During your dental exam, we will:

  • Use advanced technology like laser cavity detectors to find issues when they are small and simple to treat
  • Suggest preventive services like fluoride and dental sealants to keep your teeth in top condition
  • Explain all of your treatment options so you can choose the best course of action for your smile
  • Discuss any questions about your smile, from replacing missing teeth to improving your appearance with cosmetic services
  • Ensure you remain comfortable with equipment like ultrasonic scalers and a local anesthesia to numb your mouth if needed

To keep your teeth in great shape, we recommend visiting us every six months for an exam and cleaning. To make an appointment, call us today at 956-247-4994.

Supplement Oral Hygiene With Preventive Dental Care

While daily brushing and flossing are essential in preventing problems like cavities and gum disease, you also need regular professional cleanings. Our ultrasonic scalers use high-powered vibration and water to remove bacteria-filled plaque from your teeth, even tough-to-reach areas like in between teeth and at the gumline.

We may also recommend preventive services like:

  • Custom Mouthguards – If you play sports, we suggest letting us fit you for a custom mouthguard to protect your teeth from athletic injuries. Mouthguards can also help correct TMJ problems and help you get a better night’s rest by relieving sleep apnea symptoms.
  • Dental Sealants – Sealants are ultra-thin layers of plastic your dentist applies to the top surfaces of your teeth to keep bacteria from getting into tiny grooves where they can cause decay.
  • Fluoride Treatments – Fluoride makes your tooth enamel stronger so it is less susceptible to decay.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings & Exams

How long does a dental cleaning and exam take?

For many of our patients, your dental cleaning and examination will take about an hour. We will review your dental and medical history, take X-rays if needed, thoroughly clean your teeth, examine your mouth for signs of problems, and discuss any needed treatments to restore your smile’s health.

How often should I get a dental cleaning and exam?

We suggest you visit us at least twice a year for a dental cleaning and examination. These regular checkups offer us the opportunity to watch your oral health and find any dental problems early on. Early detection and treatment of problems like cavities and gum disease can lead to less-invasive treatment and a better total result.
