Preventative Dentistry in Houston

Preventive dentistry is a fast and economical way to take care of your oral health. Through education, dental examinations and professional cleanings, we help you ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy and free from disease and decay.

We recommend that you come for a preventive dentistry appointment every six months. This lets us keep your teeth clean, and it also ensures that we can detect any problems before they become serious.

During a cleaning, our hygienist will check the pockets around your teeth. They will also take x-rays to aid in diagnosis. Then they will clean your teeth to remove plaque, tartar, and any stains on your teeth. In some cases, they may recommend a deep cleaning to prevent gum disease.

We may recommend fluoride treatment or dental sealants as part of your preventative dentistry appointment. These treatments protect your teeth from decay and prevent cavities.

After your cleaning, we’ll perform a dental exam to check the overall health of your mouth and detect any signs of decay, gum disease, or injury.

The dental exam also includes an oral cancer screening. Oral cancer affects over 45,000 Americans every year and can be deadly if it’s left untreated. Patients have an 80-90% survival rate if oral cancer is detected and treated early, so frequent oral cancer screenings are very important.
