Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Many people aren’t sure how often they should have a checkup performed. Basic medical exams, such as a physical, are generally needed once a year. However, dental checkups and comprehensive cleanings need to be completed once every six months. Dental disease can easily develop, which is why we check more often.
But that’s not the only reason. Biannual checkups also allow us to stay on top of developing issues. The earlier we can catch small issues, such as gingivitis or tiny cavities, the more likely we can prevent more serious problems that require more extensive care. Our Frisco dental office will do everything possible to resolve your dental issues as quickly and comfortably as we can.
Nightguards for Bruxism
Getting up early in the morning can be tough enough for some people, but doing so with a bad headache or jaw can be difficult for anybody! If this happens to you quite regularly, it’s a sign that you may be grinding your teeth in your sleep, also known as bruxism. While untreated bruxism can wear down your teeth and even cause them to crack, there is a way to prevent future damage as well as chronic pain. Nightguards are custom-made appliances that protect your smile and make it easier to rest throughout the night.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer appears in about 55,000 people every year. What’s unsettling is that at least 25 percent of those cases develop even if the patient has no symptoms to speak of. While excessive alcohol consumption and tobacco use can increase your risk, you should also have an oral cancer screening completed regardless of your habits. Far too often, oral cancer is diagnosed too late, making it difficult or impossible to complete treatment. Our dental office is fully dedicated to reversing this trend of oral cancer cases.
