The time has come for your routine dental appointment. These appointments should be scheduled at least every six months. This allows Dr. Thomas R. Watkins and our team to help you maintain and improve your dental health. Depending on your needs, we may recommend additional cleaning and exam appointments.
Professional Dental Cleaning
Our hygienist will thoroughly clean the plaque and tartar from each of your teeth using a small, metal tool. Plaque will be removed from below the gumline as well. Then, your teeth will be flossed and polished.
Our dentist in San Antonio, Texas, will then examine your teeth, gums and mouth thoroughly for signs of decay, gum disease and other issues. The goal is for Dr. Thomas R. Watkins to detect and diagnose any dental issues as soon as possible so that they can be treated quickly. If any issues were discovered, we will explain your treatment options. Of course, you have the final say in your dental treatment.
We will decide whether or not to take dental X-rays based on factors including your age, risk of cavities and dental health history. Dental X-rays can locate decay and other issues that are between the teeth or in other areas that make them difficult to spot with the naked eye.
