Biannual cleanings and examinations provide the cornerstone for optimal oral health. These twice-yearly visits give Austin dentist Dr. John Schmid the perfect opportunity to detect early warning signs of tooth decay, infection, and gum disease, allowing for prompt treatment that can prevent serious future problems.
If you are overdue for a dental cleaning and exam, please call our Austin office at 512-329-5967 to schedule your appointment today.
Keeping Your Smile Strong and Beautiful
During your routine visits with Dr. Schmid, we will use advanced dental technology to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums. Though we use whisper-quiet instruments and practice the greatest care, we understand that these cleanings may be uncomfortable for some patients.
If you are uncomfortable for any reason with routine dental care, we will be happy to discuss sedation dentistry options that can help you feel at ease during your visit.
Once a year, we will take digital X-rays of your teeth and gums to detect those signs of oral health problems invisible to the human eye. These X-rays are much safer than traditional options, producing 90% less radiation to help preserve your physical health as well as the health of your smile.
Why Do I Need Regular Cleanings and Exams?
Physical health is one of the main reasons to maintain routine dental exams. Common dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay can actually have a profound impact on the health of your body. In fact, gum disease alone has been linked to increased risks for heart attack and stroke, hypertension, kidney failure, and dementia. Keeping your smile free of disease remains one of the most effective ways to reduce risks for these issues.
There are a number of reasons to visit your Austin dentist every six months. To schedule your next appointment, please call 512-329-5967 today. Dr. Schmid welcomes patients from Round Rock, Austin, and all surrounding areas of Texas.
