Dental Cleaning & Exams
The Importance of Hygiene Visits - General Dentistry Houston, TX
We offer a variety of Dental Exams in Houston, TX – including:
When you come in for your professional teeth cleaning in Houston, Texas, we will remove all plaque and tartar from hard to reach places on your teeth. Dr. Viet “Vince” Tran always recommends you come in for your routine cleanings every 6 months.
Gum treatments (also called scaling and root planning or deep cleaning) might be recommended if you have periodontal disease. A gum treatment is a thorough cleaning around the gums and tooth roots. The treatment helps improve the health of your gums, preventing tooth and bone loss.
When you come in for a gum treatment at our Houston, Texas office we will provide a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable during your visit. Your gum treatment can be done in one or two visits, depending on your preference. Afterward, we recommend you maintain your periodontal health by scheduling your follow up routine cleanings every 3-4 months.
What is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a naturally occurring compound that can help prevent dental decay by strengthening the enamel on our teeth. It can actually reverse early stages of decay and small cavities. Fluoride is commonly known as nature’s cavity fighter. Fluoride helps protect your teeth and prevent cavities. For patients with serious decay concerns, especially younger patients, we offer fluoride treatments. Fluoride treatments are applied to the surface of teeth following your appointment to help strengthen the enamel. It is safe for both children and adults which makes it a great option if you are susceptible or at a higher risk for cavities. Call and schedule your appointment today!
