Dental Checkups and Cleaning in Fort Worth, TX

The American Dental Association recommends that you see your dentist routinely for checkups and/or dental hygiene appointments. When you come for a checkup at our Weatherford – Fort Worth area dental office, we will inspect your soft tissues for oral cancer, periodontal disease (gum disease), and other problems. Dr. Blair or Dr. Conditt will also look at each tooth in your mouth to assess problems such as decay, cracks, or old dental work that needs to be replaced. We will be happy to replace metal fillings, inlays, onlays, and dental crowns with tooth-colored alternatives.

During your professional dental hygiene appointment, our gentle hygienist will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. This hygienist is specially trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease. We prefer to help you maintain optimal dental health so that you never have to worry about this potentially damaging condition. However, if you develop periodontal problems, we're here to help you.

With routine checkups and dental hygiene appointments, we can often reduce your potential for large dental problems. For instance, if left untreated, a small cavity can grow to destroy an entire tooth and spread to surrounding teeth. Similarly, cracked tooth can cause pain or break off and create additional problems. Furthermore, advanced gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss for American adults, and oral cancer causes more than 7,500 deaths each year. Caught and treated early, these diseases can be controlled. Children as young as two should visit the dentist, and by age four or five, they should be attending regular checkups. Adult patients however should be attending regular checkups and hygiene visits every three to six months as recommended by their dentist or dental hygienist.

Fort Worth dentists Dr. Kelly Blair and Dr. Mitch Conditt can help you achieve and maintain good dental health. Practicing good dental hygiene practice at home and then coming to our office in Fort Worth for regular checkups and professional dental hygiene appointments will help prevent gum disease and result in a clean dental health bill.
