What Happens During a Checkup and Cleaning?

The first portion of your appointment is the checkup with Dr. Parmar. She will begin by examining every part of your mouth, including all of your teeth, gums, and other soft tissues for any problems, such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. X-rays may also be taken to diagnose issues that can’t be seen even with our team’s trained eyes, like cavities in between the teeth. Once we’ve taken these x-rays, Dr. Parmar will go over her findings with you and develop a personalized treatment plan to keep your teeth happy and healthy.

Next comes your dental cleaning in Frisco. Our skilled dental assistant will thoroughly clean your teeth with special tools. These tools are much more adept at removing built-up plaque than your toothbrush and floss at home. After all traces of plaque have been removed from your teeth and gumline, we’ll polish your teeth so that they shine just a little brighter. We can also apply a topical fluoride treatment to give you an extra boost in the fight against cavities.

Why Are Regular Visits So Important?

Even if you brush and floss diligently at home, it’s still imperative that you attend regular dental cleanings. This is because once plaque calcifies into tartar, it can only be removed by a dental professional. Tartar contains lots of bacteria that can contribute to gum disease and tooth decay, so you’ll want to get rid of it as often as possible.

Checkups are just as important in the grand scheme of things. Most dental problems don’t present noticeable symptoms until irreversible damage has already been done. For this reason, you’ll want to get your mouth regularly checked by Dr. Parmar. She can diagnose dental health issues while treatment is still relatively easy and inexpensive for you. In the case of diagnosing oral cancer early on, it could even save your life!

How Can You Keep Your Mouth Healthy Between Appointments?

To decrease your risk of developing problems like cavities and gum disease, stick to the following tips:

  • Eat a diet low in sugary and starchy foods and rich in fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • If you smoke or chew tobacco, consider quitting.
  • Gently clean your teeth with an ultra-soft toothbrush for two minutes twice a day.
  • Floss daily to remove food debris and bacteria from between your teeth and along your gumline.
  • If you can’t brush after eating, chew sugar-free gum to stimulate the production of saliva, which naturally washes your teeth clean.
