Pure Smiles Teeth Cleanings and Checkups

Dental Hygiene | Katy Texas Dentist

Regular Dental Teeth Cleanings and Check-ups are Key for Optimum Oral Health

The Pure Smiles Dental Team believes in the importance of regular Teeth Cleanings and Checkups. During your appointment with us, we will clean your teeth both above and below the gum line using traditional hand scalers and our ultrasonic scaling tools to remove calculus from your teeth.

During your Teeth Cleanings and Checkups we also complete the following:

  • A comprehensive assessment of your mouth to check for gum recession, periodontal disease, and any other possible concerns.
  • We will polish your teeth to remove surface stains and plaque.
  • We complete a fluoride treatment to help strengthen your tooth enamel.
  • We complete an examination to check your head, neck and jaw areas for abnormalities and conduct a thorough oral cancer screening, assessing the gum tissues, tongue, and lips for signs of oral cancer.
  • We take digital x-rays (when needed) to diagnose tooth decay and concerns not visible to the naked eye.
  • We provide you with a detailed treatment plan to correct any existing conditions with one of our Dental Services.

How Often Should I Have Teeth Cleanings and Checkups?

At Pure Smiles, we determine the frequency of your Teeth Cleanings and Checkups to meet your individual needs. If you have teeth that are susceptible to the accumulation of plaque and calculus, have crowded teeth, or have a history of gum disease, you may require more frequent visits. No two patients are alike, and we evaluate every patient as an individual and determine the dental hygiene schedule that will meet your specific needs. Most patients visit our office a minimum of once every six months. Some people may benefit from visiting our office every 3-4 months, and others may only require their dental hygiene visits every 9 to 12 months.
