If you are looking for a dental practice that will provide you with complete family dental care, then you should come to see us at iSmile Specialists. At our office, you can see one of our expert dentists including Dr. Wael Kanaan, Dr. Simon Samo, or Dr. Wesam Salha. Our dental practice provides complete dental care, including a comprehensive Missouri City dental exam.
If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums remain healthy, it is very important that you have a Missouri City dental exam every six months. If our dentist feels that you need to have this performed more often, due to a certain dental condition or medical condition that can affect your dental health, you will be informed so that you can make proper arrangements. Our dental exams are extremely thorough so that any problems that you may have will be caught early. During our dental exams, your teeth will be checked to make sure that there are no problems with dental cavities, chipped or cracked teeth, or problems with any existing dental restorations. For example, if you have a dental crown which is lose, infection can end up reaching the tooth and causing problems underneath the crown. Our dentist will also check the health of your gums to make sure you are not developing gingivitis, a common precursor to gum disease, or gum disease itself. Gingivitis and gum disease are generally caused by poor oral hygiene. When a patient has gingivitis, the gums have become inflamed and can usually be effectively treated by having several regular dental cleanings over the coming months. If you have gum disease, and deep pockets have formed between the teeth and gums, a scaling and root planing treatment is most likely indicated. During a dental exam, your mouth will also be thoroughly screened for signs of oral cancer, and your jaw will also be checked to make sure it is not having any bite problems.
