At the office of Brilliant Smiles, we offer a comprehensive preventive program, designed to meet the needs of patients of all ages. We recommend bringing your family in twice a year for teeth cleanings, examinations, oral cancer screenings and supplemental treatments to protect the health of your smile. With the care of our Austin dentist, every checkup is informative and engaging for you and your loved ones, making it easy and stress-free to maintain healthy, beautiful smiles.
Preventive care begins at home, with brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages. These steps help prevent the buildup of plaque, which is a sticky film that harbors the bacteria responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. To complement your daily oral hygiene routine, it’s also important to visit our Austin dentist for biannual checkups and professional cleanings. During your teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove any residual plaque, tartar and food debris from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We’ll also review your home care practices and offer guidance as to how you can brush and floss most effectively between checkups. For our youngest patients, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which are proven to reduce children’s risk of cavities. We also provide children with the educational tools they need to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. For every member of your family, our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their surrounding anatomy, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic checkups allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
Every time you bring your family in for a checkup with our Austin dentist, you can expect personalized, compassionate care. At the office of Brilliant Smiles, keeping your teeth and gums healthy is our number one priority. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
