Preventive Dentistry Helps Protect & Strengthen Smiles
- Sandra Lenard
Preventive dentistry is an essential part of ongoing oral health care – after all, isn’t it easier to stop dental problems before they start? That’s why Dr. Eck and the rest of our staff strongly recommend that children and adults alike visit Legacy Dental SA at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. During this time, we can form a comprehensive understanding of your smile’s current needs and recommend any necessary treatment. Other helpful services are also available to provide your teeth with plenty of support and guard them against common threats. If you’re from the Castle Hills Forest area or nearby, please contact our San Antonio practice today to schedule a visit. We look forward to seeing you!
Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Every patient, both young and old, need to undergo routine examinations by a dental team they know and trust. Why? Because even the most diligent brushers and flossers can end up with dental problems that go unnoticed by the untrained eye, and we can save you a lot of grief, discomfort, and even money by catching these problems early on in their development. During your checkup, one of our doctors will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth, gums, jaw, and other aspects of your oral health. If they find any causes for concern, they will let you know and work with you to formulate a treatment plan that addresses the problem.
We also have a very talented hygiene department who excel at keeping teeth squeaky clean! Bacteria-filled plaque and tartar are constantly forming in the mouth, and if they’re allowed time to harden into place, regular oral hygiene at home won’t get rid of them. We’ll perform a thorough cleaning that eliminates these decay-causing elements and leaves you with a smile that feels wholly refreshed.
