Although your teeth’s enamel protects the inner portion of them from damage, acid and bacteria can eat away at this portion of your teeth and leave parts of your teeth vulnerable. The damage isn’t noticeable to you, but that doesn’t mean it’s not there. As the enamel wears away, cavities and other tooth problems may arise before you know it. This isn’t taking into consideration that the bacteria that remains in your mouth can irritate and inflame your gums, causing gingivitis – and even worse – gum disease.
The only way to prevent many dental problems is to see our Houston, TX dentist at EZ Dental Clinic for preventive care. We offer routine cleanings, patient education, and imaging to hinder dental issues in the future.
During a routine dental cleaning, our dentist at EZ Dental Clinic uses a specialized, dental-grade spin brush to remove all the plaque and debris on your teeth thoroughly. You receive a toothpaste that polishes your teeth, giving you a vibrant smile, and reducing your risk of dental health problems. Our hygienist also flosses your teeth to remove harmful substances from in between your teeth.
If you have gingivitis or gum disease, our dentist may recommend a more thorough cleaning known as planing and scaling. During this procedure, our dentist scrapes the plaque around and underneath your gum line, which can relieve gum inflammation.
Our hygienist and dentist will evaluate your teeth for any visible signs of a problem.
Our dentist in Houston provides fluoride treatments, which are meant to strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities. The fluoride can even decrease bacteria growth in your mouth.
Although we don’t advise patients to receive x-rays at every appointment, our dentist recommends routine x-rays to evaluate your teeth for cavities. Often, they lurk below the surface, and you never know you have them until they pose a problem and require a costlier, entailed fix.
