Ensure a Healthy Smile with Preventative Dentistry
A beautiful smile is a direct result of total oral care. Simple dental care habits, such as brushing and flossing, all add up to the right solution when it comes to protecting your oral health. Flossing helps you prevent gum disease, while brushing keeps cavities at bay, says the Mayo Clinic. Did you know that regular dental cleanings can go beyond just a nice smile and healthy teeth? Being diligent about oral health care can even help you prevent stroke, heart disease and diabetes. Metroplex Implants & Family Dentistry can be your partner in ensuring a healthy oral care regimen.
Most experts agree that dental visits twice a year are imperative in keeping a bright smile and healthy gums. Here at Metroplex Implants & Family Dentistry, we offer unparalleled professional dental cleaning and examinations for both kids and adults. During your cleaning, our dentists and hygienists will remove the plaque and tartar that has built up on your teeth. After a thorough cleaning, brushing and flossing, we will go over some areas of concern with you, if any. We’ll also review and reinforce some good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing techniques, that you can adopt in everyday life.
Keep in mind, you should brush your teeth twice a day with an American Dental Association-approved fluoride toothpaste. In addition, floss between your teeth at least once a day to get rid of the food particles and bacteria that your brush simply can’t get at.
While diligent brushing and flossing are great at removing food particles and plaque from the smooth surfaces of your teeth, they can’t get into the tiny pits and depressions on the chewing surfaces of your back teeth. If left unchecked, food particles and plaque can build up and cause cavities. This is why we apply dental sealants after a cleaning to bond into the depressions, working as a barrier to protect the enamel from plaque and other bacteria.
It’s a good idea to get sealants for small kids and teens; however, adults can also benefit from them.
You’re in good hands with us. From the moment you walk in the door, you are greeted by friendly receptionists. Our hygienists and dentists are also warm and welcoming, putting you at ease immediately. Our dentists include:
