Cleaning & Prevention in San Marcos, TX
While daily brushing and flossing are essential to maintaining optimal oral health, they have limitations. AquaSprings Dental personalizes cleaning and prevention services to amplify daily hygiene routines and overall health. Additionally, regular dental check-ups and cleanings are crucial in preventing cavities, gum disease, and other oral health concerns—so don’t forget to schedule a dental cleaning and exam once every six months.
Dental check-ups are vital. Our general dentists thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and mouth during a dental exam, looking for any signs of damage or disease. For individuals who visit the dental office regularly, dental exams can detect and prevent minor issues before they become more severe and costly to treat. Failing to get regular dental exams can lead to a host of health problems beyond just dental issues, such as heart disease and diabetes. By scheduling routine dental exams every six months, our dentists can help you keep your oral health in check and support overall wellness.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is a severe disease that can affect anyone, regardless of age or lifestyle habits. Unfortunately, it often goes undetected until it has progressed to an advanced stage, making successful treatment more difficult.
Getting screened annually is essential, even if you’re not experiencing any symptoms. During the screening process, our general dentists will examine your mouth and throat for signs of cancerous or precancerous cells, allowing for early detection and intervention. Don’t leave your health up to chance. Schedule an oral cancer screening today and take control of your wellness.
Regular professional cleanings with a registered dental hygienist are crucial for maintaining a healthy smile. Even with diligent at-home oral care, mineralized plaque deposits (known as tartar) can stubbornly stick to some regions of the teeth, providing a cozy home for harmful bacteria. If left untreated, these deposits can release toxins, leading to severe long-term issues and even tooth loss.
By committing to dental cleanings every six months, AquaSprings Dental can safely and gently remove these deposits from the tooth surfaces. By not allowing bacterial tartar to build up, we can prevent irreversible damage. Additionally, with the help of professional-strength polishing paste, our dental hygienists can buff away stains and microscopic plaque, leaving your teeth smooth and shiny. This thorough teeth-cleaning process helps slow discoloration and maintains a glossy surface, facilitating better brushing.
