Dental Cleaning in Coppell, TX
A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays.
Dental Cleanings are one of the most common procedures we perform at Coppell Family Dentistry. They are a very important aspect of your oral health and recommended to occur at a minimum of once every 6 months. In some instances, Dr. Holovnia may suggest more frequent dental cleanings.
These cleanings are often performed by the dentist or a dental hygienist.
Dental Hygienists are licensed professionals who work alongside dentists. The dental hygienist will probe for possible infections and clean the hardened plaque off of your teeth which can result in gum recession and other oral health problems.
We only see our patients so often, so it is on them to maintain their oral health as well as schedule regular visits for dental cleanings.
In dentistry, the saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” may be cliche, but it is certainly true.
If you haven’t seen a dentist in 6 months or more, you should give us a call right away and be seen for a check up and a cleaning in order to stay ahead of any potential problems and take the action that is needed to prevent additional pain and costly procedures.
