General Dentistry

If you are diligent about brushing and flossing your teeth between meals, you may wonder if you should get regular dental cleanings in Grapevine, TX. After all, at-home dental care removes food particles from your teeth and gums. Do you really need to keep up with professional cleanings too?

Be Consistent With Dental Visits

The answer is a resounding YES. One of the biggest misconceptions about dental care is that problems only start when you can feel pain or sensitivity in your mouth. In reality, problems can start brewing well before you feel it. Most dental treatments are less invasive and costly when caught early. Here’s how your dental team can help you at regular dental cleanings in Grapevine, TX:

  • Remove tartar and plaque deposits
  • Examine teeth for cavities and decay
  • Apply fluoride as cavity prevention
  • Identify chipped and damaged teeth, crowns, or fillings
  • Discuss any issues, like sensitivity or bite problems
  • Remove stains from teeth
  • Screen for oral cancer

Even if you brush and floss your teeth like clockwork, you may miss areas that are hard to reach. Over time, if not cleaned thoroughly, plaque deposits can lead to gum disease or cavities. Take advantage of your dentist’s expertise to prevent gum disease and tooth decay every six to 12 months.

Dental Sealants in Grapevine TX

Sealants are one of the big tools we have in our prevention toolbox. They serve to seal off the grooves in teeth and basically form a protective layer that can prevent decay from forming. Placing sealants is quite common in children because their teeth are forming and the little gremlins love their SUGAR! However, if you’re looking to keep your teeth forever then you might want to discuss whether they’d be a useful weapon in your prevention arsenal with any of the knowledgeable staff here at Grapevine Dental.
