Although dental bridges, same-day crowns, and cosmetic dentistry are all important pieces of what we do here at Artaza DDS, the backbone of our Katy dental office is general dentistry. General dentistry is all the appointments that are scheduled to maintain the health and strength of your teeth. From cleaning, to x-rays, general dentistry appointments are key to ensuring a healthy, beautiful smile for life. These appointments are also where our expert team will be able to catch problems such as cavities before they get worse.
We all think that we do a good job with our at-home dental care, but that isn’t always the case. Regular visits to the dentist for cleanings and x-rays allow us to monitor how your teeth look, and give helpful suggestions as to how you can keep your teeth healthy at home. Even if you take care of your teeth perfectly at home, professional cleanings can help take your oral health a step further. Treatments like flouride, which are typically only done in our dental office, help strengthen your teeth, and allow them to remain healthy and strong for a lifetime.
Another perk of regular general dentistry appointments is that they are a great way to catch undetected problems before they progress. A tiny cavity may not be bothering you now, but we can still see it on an x-ray. This means we can treat the problem while it’s still minor. Once it starts to bother you, the problem is typically much more severe. Save yourself time, and discomfort, by scheduling twice yearly appointments for professional cleanings.
If it has been more than 6 months since your last general dentistry appointment, give us a call today. We look forward to providing Katy area residents with quality dental care.
