At Katy Star Dental we offer a comprehensive program of preventive care to help every member of your family maintain optimal oral health. We encourage twice a year visits for routine checkups and care that includes a Katy teeth cleaning and comprehensive examination with an oral cancer screening. With the care and comfort of our patients as top priorities, we make it easy and stress-free to keep your family’s smiles healthy and vibrant.
Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by plaque, which is a sticky film that harbors the bacteria responsible for dental disease. When plaque is left to accumulate, these bacteria produce acids that erode tooth enamel to produce cavities. Moreover, when plaque gathers below the gum line, it infects the tissues supporting the teeth, which causes gum disease. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages are important steps you can take each day towards protecting your teeth and gums, it’s also important to visit our office twice a year for a Katy teeth cleaning and exam. At every checkup visit, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination, using advance digital radiography, as needed. Periodic checkups allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
And, to thoroughly remove any residual plaque, tartar and food debris from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums, we provide a professional teeth cleaning. We’ll also review your home care routine and make suggestions as to how you can brush and floss most effectively between visits.
Maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile can be easy when you keep up with your biannual Katy teeth cleaning and dental exam. At Katy Star Dental, your family’s oral health is our number one priority. To learn more about our office, or to schedule an appointment, give us a call today.
