Having a regular cycle that you are attending a dental appointment is super important. Bacteria change over time, even within as little as seven days, the type of bacteria that live in your mouth are going to be different. So, getting the regular cleaning and exam so we can check for damage that might be done by that bacteria, that's the most important thing you can do for your health. Heart disease and gum disease go together, which a lot of people don't know, they don't realize, yes, the mouth is connected to the body.
To make sure that you are well cared for, we're going to screen for oral cancer, we're going to check in between your teeth for cavities, and we do X-rays on your initial visit. And then we do X-rays on an as-needed basis. We're definitely not one of those machine practices that every six months you have to have X-rays no matter what. We realize that radiation is cumulative, and we want to minimize that, while giving you excellent care, because we don't want to miss anything, but we also don't want to overexpose you.
So, if you've been away from dentistry for a little while, or even if you're just ready to make a switch to some place that's a little more friendly, a little more connected, definitely come see us, we can help you.

Give Your Smile a Lift With a Dental Cleaning & Exam
Coming into Great American Smiles™ every six months is one of the best things you can do for your smile. Our routine treatment will help keep your smile disease- and cavity-free. At your checkup, we’ll thoroughly clean and polish each of your teeth to eliminate bacteria and give you that fresh-from-the-dentist feeling.
We’ll also check for oral cancer and signs of any other problems using an intraoral camera and a cavity detector. The camera will allow you to see what’s going on inside your mouth just like your dentist can. If we do spot anything, we’ll let you know and advise you on your treatment options. Some types of treatment you may need include:
- Gum Disease Treatment – Scaling and root planing, or “deep cleaning,” will remove plaque and bacteria around and below your gum line.
- Preventive Treatments – Fluoride treatments and dental sealants will protect your teeth against cavities.
- Tooth Fillings – We use tooth-colored, non-metal fillings that blend in beautifully with the rest of your smile.
If you’ve been thinking about cosmetic dentistry or other types of dental care, your checkup is a good time to bring up any ideas or concerns you have. We’ll be happy to discuss them with you and help you develop a treatment plan.
Keeping up with your dental cleanings and exams in Austin is the best path to a beautiful smile. Call us today at 512-982-6405 to schedule an appointment. Remember, when you join one of our membership plans, your routine checkups are included.
