To maintain your general health, it is important to maintain your oral health care! See Plano Parkway Dental for all of your dental care, as distinctive as you are.


Dental Checkups

Why a Dental Checkup?

Why not? You are practicing good, at-home dental care by brushing and flossing regularly. Right? Why not continue your good dental care by having regular dental checkups? Regular dental exams promote preventative dental care and help to protect your oral health and overall general health. When visiting Plano Parkway Dental, in Plano, Texas, your regular dental exam provides Dr. Jesse Taylor the opportunity to offer guidelines on caring for your teeth and to become aware of any potential dental problems you may have. Your dental checkup allows for early discovery of problems, allowing for early treatment.

When to Have a Dental Checkup

When you want to practice good, preventative dental care, the American Dental Hygienists' Association recommends that adults should schedule dental exams every six months; however, depending on your specific dental situation, Plano Parkway Dental may suggest more often. If you wear dentures or no longer have your natural teeth, it is still important for you to schedule regular dental checkups to maintain good oral health.

What Happens During my Dental Checkup with Plano Parkway Dental?

As an important part of your preventive dental care program, you want to schedule regular dental checkups with Plano Parkway Dental. During the first step of your dental checkup, Dr. Taylor or one of his hygienists cleans your teeth and identifies any gum inflammation or bone loss. During your dental exam, they also assess your risk of developing tooth decay and any other oral health problems. Another step in your dental checkup is for Dr. Taylor or his hygienist to examine your face, neck, and mouth to determine any abnormalities. In addition, your dental exam may include the steps of dental X-rays or other diagnostic procedures.

Dr. Taylor or one of his dental team members may ask you questions about your diet and oral hygiene habits and may even demonstrate for you proper brushing and flossing techniques. Other topics for possible discussion during a dental checkup include

  • Medications
  • Tobacco use
  • Tooth loss
  • Crowns, fixed bridges, or dental implants
  • Dentures
  • Cosmetic procedures

Your dental checkup is also your opportunity to ask questions about oral health care with your Plano Parkway Dental professionals.

As part of preventative dental care, Dr. Taylor and his dental team want your dental checkup to be a pleasant experience. If you experience dental anxiety or dental fears, Plano Parkway Dental may suggest sedation for you during your dental exam. Dental anxiety or fear should not prevent you from seeking the regular dental checkups you need to maintain good oral health.
