Your dentist at Foremost Family Health Centers in Dallas will approach your biannual checkup in two phases. First, he or she will complete a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. This comprehensive evaluation comprises looking for signs of gum disease, checking for loose teeth, examining your tongue, searching for visual evidence of tooth decay, and more. This stage may even include x-rays for a complete look at your teeth and bone structure. During your next visit, your dentist will perform a teeth cleaning. This process involves removing any tartar or plaque, polishing teeth, and flossing between teeth. Our team will ensure you are comfortable throughout your appointment. We will conclude by discussing your oral health habits and making suggestions if necessary.
