Keep Your Mouth Healthy with Same-Day Dental Cleanings and Exams
Preventing oral health problems involves more than brushing and flossing your teeth. At Antoine Dental Center, our dentists and staff offer professional cleanings and exams to help prevent dental problems and keep your mouth healthy for life. For your convenience, we have same-day service so that your cleaning and exam are done in just one visit.
Most experts recommend professional dental cleaning twice a year. This allows us to remove any potentially harmful plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your teeth so that you can have a fresh start. Regular brushing and flossing is a great way to keep your smile healthy, but the plaque tends to build up in hard-to-reach areas where it can quickly harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a professional.
When you visit us for your teeth cleaning and exam, we will take digital X-rays using our state-of-the-art technology. This will allow us to get a very clear image of your teeth in just seconds so that we can clean effectively and understand what treatments can help you. Our X-ray machine exposes you to less radiation than traditional X-rays, keeping you and your family safe.
Our hygienists and dentist will then clean your teeth. We will use several tools to give you a dental deep cleaning. This will leave your teeth smooth and shiny and your gums refreshed. We may use an ultrasonic cleaner and water sprayer to loosen hardened deposits before removing the tartar and plaque buildup with a hand scraper.
In some cases, we may also smooth the roots of your teeth to clean them even more thoroughly and reverse early signs of gingivitis. We will then use a special electric toothbrush and gritty polish to scrub and polish your teeth. This helps remove outer stains and discolorations. If we notice you are prone to cavities, we may use fluoride treatments to protect you from decay.
Much like a general practitioner coordinates your health care needs, our Houston dentistry experts coordinate your dental care treatments to ensure a healthy, functional, and attractive smile. Based on your dental exam and cleaning, we may recommend specific treatments to control decay or infection, including:
If you decide to move forward with one of these essential treatments, we may use our 3D CAT scanner to give us precise images of your mouth in about a minute. Using this and your dental X-ray images, we will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.
If a visit to the dentist makes you nervous, we can take steps to help you feel more relaxed. Our office has been designed with patient comfort in mind, and each member of our staff is friendly, welcoming, and compassionate. For patients with dental anxiety, phobia, or specific fears or concerns, we offer sedation options. Dental sedation can help you feel calmer and more relaxed throughout your care.
Let Dr. Nazari and his caring team help keep your smile healthy and confident with same-day dental cleanings and exams. Contact your Houston dentist today at 713-364-8990 or via our convenient online form to learn more or to schedule your appointment.
