Preventative Dentistry Keeps You Smiling
We Are More Than Just Dental Cleanings
Are you or a family member due for your routine six-month check-up? Maybe you are seeking a thorough evaluation of your teeth and gums so you can obtain that remarkable, flawless smile you’ve always dreamed of! Our dentists and hygienists perform comprehensive dental exams and preventative dentistry in McKinney, TX, to thoroughly evaluate each patient’s dental health and needs. Meticulously examining your teeth, gums, tissues, and oral cavity are elements of this vital preventative dentistry exam. During your first visit with us, you can expect an all-inclusive examination lasting approximately one hour. The expansive dental assessment list includes: visual exam, blood pressure reading, laser cavity detection (using state-of-the-art DIAGNOdent™), periodontal probing to help detect periodontal disease signs, digital x-rays, existing dental work evaluation, intraoral and extraoral photos, oral cancer screening using Velscope® technology, and 3D images of your mouth.
Preventative Dentistry Procedures Can Include:
Keeping You Smiling for a Lifetime
Screening for oral cancer, periodontal disease, cavities, signs of decay, and other harmful dental issues are essential during the complete preventative dentistry examination. Detecting a dental problem in its early stages is paramount for maintaining a healthy mouth. Catching problems in their earliest stages helps to minimize the amount of dental work needed, and helps to avoid unnecessary expenses. This is why we highly recommend keeping vigilant of your routine checkups and dental cleanings for you and your family. Additionally, teaching your children and practicing effective at-home oral care is equally important for healthy gums and teeth.
During your comprehensive preventative dentistry exam with one of our dentists, we will happily and patiently listen to your thoughts, questions, concerns, and even your dental wishes. Here at McKinney Dentist, we treat you as one of our family members—with respect and patience, while exceeding your expectations. With the valuable information gathered during your exam, our dentists will help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. We know your confidence lies in our hands, so we consistently strive to deliver amazing results for all of our patients.
