As dentistry continues to thrive and advance in today’s world, it’s almost impossible to imagine less than 100 years ago our dental care consisted of doctors only able to care for their patients’ smiles after an infection or pain had already come up. Because there wasn’t enough technology and information, this often led to the extraction of teeth and homemade remedies to ease pain. These procedures sometimes even led to even more infections!

While today’s dentistry has highly advanced in the past 50 years, you still are at risk for infections, decay, or other oral issues, even with diligent brushing and flossing. The best treatment for your best smile is seeing your dentist at least twice a year for a professional cleaning and exam. Dr. and our dental team provide this service so you can have great oral health.

The only step you have to take is making an appointment with our office here in Arlington, Texas, for an exam. We do a full examination of your teeth with X-rays and an assessment of your gums and between your teeth. Then we apply a fluoride treatment, remove plaque buildup, and clean your teeth with our up-to-date technology.

If needed, some people need to come in more than twice a year, sometimes every other month if they suffer from a certain dental issue. Those at higher risk for dental disease include diabetics, pregnant women, smokers, people vulnerable to gum disease or have a weak immune system. To schedule an appointment with Smiley Dental Arlington, call us at 682.558.8720 today!
