The first step to a healthy smile is a clean smile. At Bullard Family Dentistry, we will help you understand how your daily oral hygiene routine and our professional dental cleanings in Bullard, Texas, work together to keep your teeth bright for a lifetime. As part of your initial visit, and during every regular checkup at our dental office, our registered dental hygienist, under the direction of Dr. Allen, will:

  • Remove built-up plaque and tartar, which are known to promote decay
  • Clean, dry, and polish your teeth for a beautiful shine
  • Perform an oral cancer screening
  • Take dental X-rays (at least once a year) to help diagnose your smile
  • Provide individual instructions on how to improve your hygiene habits
  • Check for signs of tooth decay and gum disease
  • Examine existing dental restorations for any needed repairs

Dental cleanings are also an ideal time to present any questions you have to our knowledgeable dentists and dental team. We want you to feel confident in the dental care you receive at our office. To keep your smile functioning at maximum capacity, we encourage you to visit the dentist at least once every six months or as directed by Dr. Allen. Between visits, it is important not to forget to brush your teeth and floss every day to keep your smile working properly. If you are due for a visit to the dentist, we invite you to contact our office today to schedule a routine checkup and begin improving your oral health and smile!
