No matter how well you brush and floss, one of the key components to keeping your smile healthy and looking fantastic is your routine dental visit. Our dentist, Dr. Paresh B. Patel, will be happy to see you for regular dental cleanings and exams in Frisco, Texas, to help ensure that you continue to enjoy great oral health.

Dental cleanings and exams are common parts of what we provide, and they are also among the most important. Dental cleanings and exams allow our dentist and team to clear out tartar and plaque before they can cause damage to your teeth, and we can also detect any problems early and suggest treatment or changes in your oral care routine at home.
During your cleaning and exam, we will:
- Clean your teeth thoroughly, including scraping away any plaque and tartar
- Floss between your teeth
- Polish the surfaces of your teeth
- Examine your teeth and mouth for any problems or diseases, including cavities or gingivitis
Part of your exam may also include X-ray images so that we can see below the gumline and check for signs of damage or infection in the roots of your teeth. Regular dental care that includes cleanings and exams can help you keep your smile at its best and prevent cavities and gum disease from developing. Any problems that do arise can be caught early and treated before they cause more serious damage to your smile.
We typically schedule patients to come see us every six months for their routine cleanings and exams, but we may suggest that you visit us more frequently if you have gum disease or other dental problems. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please do not wait until your six-month appointment and contact us right away.
To schedule your cleaning and exam with our team, give us a call! We are looking forward to working with you and your smile.
