Quality Dental Care is Built on a Foundation of Consistent Dental Cleanings and Oral exams

When bi-annual dental check-ups are around the corner, most people are likely to put these appointments on the back burner to make room for other plans. You may get away with missing one or two dental appointments, but not for long. Failing to see your dentist every six months opens the door to several oral issues, including gum disease and tooth decay. And this hurts your pocket, too, since you increase the likelihood of invasive and costly treatments down the road.

Is your bi-annual dental visit due in Austin, Texas? Don’t even think about canceling it. Instead, please book an appointment with Aqua Dental for personalized dental exams and cleaning.

What to expect during a dental exam

When you visit our dental office for a check-up and cleaning, our dental team starts your appointment with an oral examination. If it’s been a while since you last saw a dentist, we will take digital x-rays of your mouth to spot issues lurking underneath your gums.

The objective of an oral exam is to screen your mouth to detect issues, such as:

  • Gum disease
  • Cavities
  • Bite misalignment
  • Oral cancer
  • Failing dental work

Should we find any problems with your smile, Dr. Chitra Pradeep will recommend an appropriate treatment plan before embarking on professional dental cleaning.

Professional teeth cleaning for a healthy and confident smile

Even if you practice optimal oral hygiene at home, you need the help of a dentist to complete your dental care regimen. Like oral exams, you should visit a dentist every six months for professional cleaning. During a dental cleaning, also called prophylaxis or simply a “prophy,” our hygienist removes plaque and tartar build-up along your gum line and on your tooth’s surface.

Using special tools — a scaler, a small mirror, and a polisher — we can reach every nook and cranny of your mouth inaccessible by at-home oral care products. Once we scale away every bit of plaque and tartar in your mouth, we floss and polish your teeth for a stunning, healthy smile.

Until your next appointment, we expect you to maintain optimal oral care at home to keep your dental health in tip-top condition.
