Dental Check-ups & Cleanings in Arlington
At I-20 Family Dental, we strongly recommend that patients of all ages visit our practice once every six months for an in-depth check-up and cleaning. Even patients who practice great oral hygiene at home fall victim to potentially serious problems like periodontal disease, oral cancer, and more. By carefully inspecting your teeth, soft tissue, any existing restorations, and other important areas of your mouth, Dr. Stephen Wardlaw can determine what your needs are and address them at the earliest stages possible saving you from more severe oral damage and discomfort down the road. Children should visit by the age of two and start attending routine visits when they’re four to five years old.
In addition to an exam, children and adults alike should also undergo an in-depth cleaning twice a year. Redonda and Dana are our talented hygienists, and they’ll take the time to carefully inspect your soft tissue for any tell-tale signs of periodontal disease. Our goal is to prevent this dangerous condition before it starts If you’re already experiencing problems, we provide periodontal therapy as well to combat ill effects and restore your smile to a healthier, happier state. A deep cleaning to combat this issue usually will involve:
- The removal of plaque and tartar from below your gum line (Scaling)
- The smoothing of your tooth roots to prevent future plaque accumulation (Root Planing)
- Antibiotic therapy that’s designed to minimize infection
For several years now, Dr. Wardlaw and his staff have been dedicated to helping patients achieve and maintain great smiles with a comprehensive variety of general, restorative, and cosmetic services. Our practice is conveniently located to serve patients from all over the Arlington, TX area, as well as Grand Prairie, Kennedale, Mansfield, Fort Worth, and beyond.
