Routine Dental Care in Denton, TX

Routine dental exams are important to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Additionally, they can help to avoid the financial costs associated with problems that may persist or worsen over time resulting in larger and more expensive problems later on. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends twice yearly checkups for people of all ages. At this frequency, most problems can be caught while they remain in an early stage.

Our team utilizes a simple, yet comprehensive process for routine dental exams. The dentist first examines your mouth visually, using dental equipment such as mouth mirrors, dental picks, and high intensity lights. They will look for cracked and decayed teeth. The dentist will assess how any new medical conditions or illnesses may affect your dental health. Your mouth will be checked for cracked or decayed teeth. The face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums will be checked for any signs of oral cancer.  Your gums and bone around the teeth will be checked for any evidence of periodontal disease. Current fillings, crowns, and other restorations are made sure to be in good order.
