Are you due for a dental cleaning and checkup? If so, our Vela Dental Centers Crosstown dental team is so excited to deeply clean your smile and examine your teeth and gums so you can maintain the strong and successful oral health you deserve! To help you prepare for your appointment, we would like to explain the steps involved.

First, you’ll receive a dental cleaning and exam. Your dental cleaning will be easy and painless, but it might involve a tiny bit of pressure. To begin, your hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from your smile with special tools and techniques. This is extremely beneficial because it helps you prevent gum disease. Then, they will examine the gumline and look for any dental issues. Next, they will floss between your teeth and remove the substances that live there. Finally, they will polish your teeth to remove the surface stains on your smile.

To conclude your appointment, your dentist will examine your smile and assess the health and strength of your teeth and gums. During this examination, Dr. Benjamin Vela or Dr. Henry Arredondo will also inspect your mouth for signs of oral cancer. If they finds any trouble areas or any problems, he will provide the necessary tips or explain your treatment options for repairing your smile.

If you have any questions about your six-month checkups in Corpus Christi, Texas, please remember that you can always call our office at 361.884.2266. Dr. Benjamin Vela and Dr. Henry Arredondo look forward to hearing from you and helping you gather the information and answers you’re looking for!
