At Vlosich, Short & Houston DDS we offer a comprehensive preventive program designed to help patients of all ages maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. We recommend bringing your family in twice a year for examinations and professional teeth cleaning Amarillo. With a focus on preemptively addressing oral health problems, to keep teeth healthy from the start.
The primary cause of tooth decay and gum disease is a sticky film called plaque, which gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. To prevent the detrimental effects of plaque buildup, it’s important to brush and floss daily, to limit your intake of sugar, and to visit our office twice a year for a professional teeth cleaning Amarillo. During your teeth cleaning a dental healthcare professional thoroughly removes plaque, tartar and debris from the most difficult-to-reach crevices of your mouth, and offers guidance on techniques you can use at home to improve your oral hygiene routine. Education is an important preventive tool, and we strive to make every visit informative and engaging, especially for our youngest patients. We also provide pediatric patients with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children. As part of your or your child’s preventive visit our dentist will examine the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Our goal is to diagnose conditions from their outset, which allows for the most straightforward and effective course of treatment. Throughout your visit, our team of professionals keeps you informed and relaxed, making your checkup a stress-free experience.
When you visit us for your teeth cleaning Amarillo, you can expect personalized attention from an experienced dentist and staff. At Vlosich, Short & Houston DDS our goal is to help you and your loved ones maintain excellent oral health throughout your lives.
