Preventive Dental Care in Coppell, TX

Even if you are brushing and flossing your teeth perfectly at home, it is still important to receive a professional cleaning at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at least twice a year. With the aid of state-of-the-art tools, a professional dental cleaning eliminates tartar and plaque that has built up over time and also polishes your enamel, for a brighter, healthier smile.

During your appointment, you will have the chance to ask questions about your oral health and learn if your daily home care routine is adequate or might need some improvement. A professional cleaning is also an opportunity for Dr. Peterson to look for any issues in your mouth that might require further monitoring or treatment.

Why Get Regular Dental Cleanings

If you would like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, improve your oral health, and save money in the long run, schedule a professional cleaning for your whole family at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that people schedule professional dental cleanings at least twice each year. Infants should receive their first dental exam before their first birthday, and after that, Dr. Peterson will help you determine when your child is ready for their next appointment. A professional dental cleaning helps prevent cavities by removing plaque buildup, the biggest cause of tooth decay. A professional cleaning also removes tartar and some staining.

What To Expect?

Your dental cleaning will start by removing the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth, which can be hard to do on your own no matter how often you brush and floss. Advanced tools are used to eliminate buildup without harming your teeth. To start, an ultrasonic device loosens the bigger pieces of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, a finer instrument is used to remove the remaining pieces. Once all the buildup from each tooth is removed, your teeth are polished to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. You can also get a fluoride treatment after your cleaning for added protection.

Dr. Peterson may suggest cleanings more frequently than every 6 months for patients with gum disease or other oral health issues. During your cleaning, Dr. Peterson or a member of his team can help you create a home routine for good oral health by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will meet your needs.
