Regular dental checkups are an essential element of maintaining good oral health. Come visit Southern Dental Associates at Katy for a checkup with our knowledgeable and experienced dental team.
Regular dental checkups provide major benefits that cannot be achieved at home. We recommend that our patients visit us at least every six months for regular checkups so that we can stay on top of their oral health. These visits give us the best opportunity to detect any new or developing issues before they become serious. While you’re here, we can also provide a thorough cleaning that will leave you with clean teeth and fresh breath. We are proud to offer quick and easy regular checkups in Katy, Texas.
During a regular checkup, we will assess your teeth and gums to ensure they are healthy. If any treatment is necessary, we will create a plan to improve your oral health. Our regular checkups include a professional cleaning, a thorough examination, digital or traditional X-rays if needed, and an oral cancer screening.
During a professional cleaning, we can clean more thoroughly than regular brushing and flossing, and we can reach areas that cannot be accessed at home. Your hygienist will remove any plaque, tartar and bacteria. The teeth are then polished to eliminate surface stains, while also providing a pleasant sensation of fresh breath.
This thorough exam allows us to assess your current dental health. The dentist knows exactly what to look for, and can spot any decay or gum disease. If necessary, we will create a personalized treatment plan.
We offer both digital and traditional X-rays. X-rays allow us to find any issues that may not be visible with the naked eye. We catch many issues using X-rays including decay, gum disease, jawbone deterioration, cysts and oral cancer.
Oral cancer is a serious condition, and a patient has the best chance of successful treatment if it is caught early. That is why we take the time to conduct a thorough oral cancer screening at every regular checkup. This involves checking the face, tongue, throat, gums and other soft oral tissues. If you notice anything unusual, please let us know as soon as possible.
