Our dentist and team recommend that you come in for a routine dental appointment at least every six months. These preventive dental appointments can help us to help you keep your smile healthy and bright.
At the beginning of your dental appointment, our hygienist will clean each of your teeth individually with a small, metal tool. The plaque and tartar will be scraped from all surfaces of the teeth. Tartar is hardened plaque that can only be removed by a dental professional. Next, our dental hygienist will floss your teeth and polish them. Depending on your dental health and age, dental fluoride may be applied to your teeth.
Your teeth and gums will be examined thoroughly. Our dentists in Houston, Texas, may take dental X-rays as well. If any signs of decay, gum disease or other issues are detected, our dentists may recommend and explain a treatment plan. We want you to be fully educated about your dental health so that you can make educated decisions about your treatment.
The team at Echeverri Dental Center is here to give you routine dental appointments. Please come see us at our office or please call at 713-956-8767.
