Routine dental cleanings and exams are the foundation for oral health and can save you pain and money in the future. At Spicewood Dental, we want all of our patients to have beautiful, cavity-free smiles! The best way to achieve this is through daily oral hygiene and regular dental exams.
The Importance of Dental Exams
By coming in every six months for a dental exam, our team can monitor your oral health and catch any potential problems before they become a larger issue. Minor toothaches, sensitivity, or a small chip in a tooth are just a few examples of dental issues that could require invasive treatments if not monitored closely. Thankfully, regular dental exams can ensure you won’t experience painful or costly dental issues in the future.
What to Expect During Your Dental Cleaning
Our team understands that even routine dental care can cause anxiety, and we provide a calming, comfortable environment for each patient. During your dental cleaning, we offer both traditional paste polish and a saltwater Prophy-Jet. The Prophy-Jet polishes using saltwater and baking soda in a high-pressure spray to remove plaque, stains, and debris from teeth. If you would prefer to use the Prophy-Jet cleaning system, just ask at your next appointment.
