Dental Cleanings & Exams
Enjoying a healthy smile that turns heads and makes you feel good about yourself is easy if you make dental exams and professional cleanings part of your routine. Much like annual checkups with your physician, cleanings and exams at Dr. Katie To Family & Cosmetic Dentistry allow us to monitor your oral health on an ongoing basis.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, though, you may be tempted to put off these important visits. The problem is that by doing this, you actually put yourself at risk of developing worse problems that will only lead to more complicated procedures to fix.
We want you to know that we’ll support you in every way we can to help make your time with us pleasant and stress-free. Dr. To and our team have found that a friendly one-on-one approach and genuine concern for your needs can completely change your attitude about dentistry.
Your First Visit to Our Katy, TX, Dental Office
First impressions matter, and we go out of our way to show you how important you are to us within moments of your arrival at our office.
When you arrive at our Katy dental office, you’ll be greeted by our friendly receptionist and offered a complimentary beverage. You can relax in our inviting waiting area, where Dr. To will personally greet you and walk you back to your exam room.
Getting to know you and understanding your concerns is the only way we can provide the dental treatments that are right for you. Before she begins the exam, Dr. To will spend time getting to know you, ask why you came to us, and how we can help.
Then she’ll review your medical and dental history (you will have already filled out the forms) to make sure we’re up to date. Our dental assistant will take x-rays and photos to complete your records and give us a clear picture of the current state of your dental health.
Next, our insurance specialist will visit with you to discuss your benefits and how we can help you get the most out of your coverage. She’ll be your contact for your insurance needs in the future, so it’s important for you to get to know each other.
Why Exams & Cleanings Are Important
It’s easy to take your good oral health for granted when you don’t have any problems. But even when everything seems to be okay, problems may be developing that won’t become apparent to you until they show up – often in a painful way.
We want to help you avoid this scenario, and routine exams and cleanings are the best way to do this. Visual exams give Dr. To an overall view, and digital x-rays provide highly detailed and accurate images that show us problems when they are still minor and easy to fix.
Professional dental cleanings are your best insurance against periodontal disease and other serious oral health issues. You can do a top-notch job of brushing and flossing at home, but you still need routine cleanings with a hygienist to get your teeth as clean as they need to be to stay healthy.
