It’s recommended that you make time for a dental cleaning and dental exam at least twice a year, sometimes more if you’re at risk for gum disease or oral cancer. Our office in Katy, TX makes it quick and easy to schedule your dental checkups as often as you’d like.

Benefits of Regular Dental Checkups & Dental Cleanings

  • They let your dentist see if your oral hygiene routine is up to par or if you should be doing something differently.
  • They allow your dentist to catch issues such as cavities early enough that they don’t evolve into a more serious issue.
  • They give your dentist a chance to screen for potentially serious diseases such as oral cancer. This is particularly important if you’ve been a smoker at any point in your life.
  • They give you the chance to talk to your dentist about any additional procedures you might be interested in, such as tooth whitening.

Your Dental Exam & Dental Cleaning Procedure

Before you arrive at your appointment, it’s important that you brush and floss your teeth. This allows your dentist to focus on any problem areas and to assess your overall oral hygiene routine. If this is your first appointment with our Katy office, please arrive fifteen minutes early to fill out any necessary paperwork and be sure to bring proof of insurance.

At your appointment, the dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth. Your mouth will then be checked for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, or other serious issues. Rest assured that when caught early, most oral diseases are completely treatable.

After your dental exam, you will have the chance to ask your dentist any questions you may have about your oral health. Your dentist may also give you some recommendations as to how to better your oral hygiene routine.
