Our family dentist offers comprehensive oral healthcare to patients in Dallas and the surrounding communities. Serving patients of all ages, our practice environment is welcoming, professional, and family friendly. Routine dental care is important for patients of any age. To help people in our area achieve and maintain vibrant oral health, we consider cleanings and checkups, fluoride and sealants, and oral cancer screenings as part of our commitment to providing care that is preventive and conservative in nature.
Teeth Cleaning and Examinations
When you schedule regular appointments for dental cleanings and checkups, you are making an investment in your oral health. While conducting oral hygiene at home is certainly important, receiving professional cleanings and a thorough oral health examination is something everyone should do. Cleanings and checkups can help our team determine if preventive measures need to be taken and visiting us regularly means that patients can enjoy cost-effective and conservative treatment because common oral health conditions are more likely to be detected early on.
Fluoride and Sealants
Fluoride treatments and dental sealants are two common preventive services that we provide. These treatments help strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. While children and adolescents are most likely to receive fluoride treatments and sealants, we may administer them to adults, too.
Scientifically proven to strengthen teeth, fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps replenish lost minerals that have been depleted from tooth enamel. Sealants add another layer of protection for teeth in addition to tooth enamel. Using a clear plastic compound, a sealant is applied to teeth to seal in its biting surfaces from debris and bacteria.
Oral Cancer Screening
Like any type of cancer, oral cancer can be fatal. Fortunately, detecting this form of cancer early on can help patients secure a favorable prognosis and recovery. Oral cancer can form anywhere in the mouth and often appears on the tongue, lips, and at the back of the throat. We provide thorough oral cancer screenings by looking at all tissues in the mouth and throat. If we detect any suspicious tissue, we will perform a biopsy to determine malignancy. Receiving oral cancer screenings can save lives.
