Summer is coming to a close and fall is right around the corner! This is a good time to get your dental cleanings and exams done for the second half of the year. That’s because tooth decay and gum disease never take a break, and if you need any further treatment done, this is a good time to get started to use your allotted health insurance for the year!
When you or a family member come in for your cleaning and exam, we will check for problems that might be quietly building (cavities, gum disease) to spot them early when they are least costly and least invasive to fix. In addition to using dental X-rays to help us see problems that are invisible to the eye, we also perform a thorough cleaning and polishing of your teeth. Your X-rays help us see issues going on under the gums and in the tooth roots.
Hopefully, you have been brushing and flossing diligently every day, but if not, we will make sure that any hardened plaque turning into tartar (or calculus) is thoroughly removed between the teeth and around the gumline. If needed, we will also go over your oral hygiene routine with you to make it the best it can be, with some tips and recommendations.
If you or your family haven’t already scheduled your bi-annual dental cleaning and exam, we invite you to do so now. Fall is a great time to catch up so you can start the new year in great oral health shape. Please note that if you or your loved one is dealing with gum disease or other dental health issues, more frequent visits may be recommended to fully restore your smile. We also offer emergency dental care, so if you have a problem that cannot wait until your next visit, please let us know and we will get you in as quickly as possible.
Fall is a wonderful time of cooling temperatures, kids back in the whirlwind of school and the excitement of upcoming holidays. It is also a great time to take care of your family’s smiles! Please call our Family Dentistry of Frisco team today at (469) 362-3150 to schedule a visit with our dentist, Dr. Paresh B. Patel. We are here to help you supplement your daily at-home oral hygiene care with the regular dental cleaning and exam your smile needs in Frisco, Texas!
