Dental Cleaning & Exams

Dental health is essential for maintaining whole body health. At McAllen Dental Care, we provide quality preventative dentistry to protect our patient’s oral health. Therefore, we recommend that our patients schedule routine exams and dental cleanings. Regular dental exams can help prevent the development of cavities, tooth decay, and more serious dental problems.

Dental Cleaning

Proper oral hygiene habits at home will help control plaque and tartar buildup, but most people are not able to reach all areas in the mouth. Routine professional dental cleanings allow your dentist to use special tools to reach hidden areas and remove harmful buildup. A dental cleaning will consist of:

  • Removal of tartar and plaque buildup from teeth
  • Professional teeth cleaning with state-of-the-art dental tools
  • Teeth are flossed and polished

Dental Exams

Many dental conditions arise without warning. Symptoms are not noticeable until the damage has already begun. Therefore, dental exams are so important because they allow your dentist to investigate and monitor the condition of your gums, teeth and overall mouth health. When problems are recognized, they can be treated immediately. Routine dental exams include:

  • Digital mouth X-rays
  • Periodontal disease risk evaluation
  • Teeth inspected for signs of decay
  • Prior dental work is checked for proper functioning
