When you think about a trip to the dental office, you probably think about preventive dentistry services for Arlington, TX residents, including professional dental hygiene cleanings, fluoride rinses, and thorough dental exams. These should all be a routine part of your life. Dr. Cabansag offers general dentistry care for patients in Arlington and surrounding areas, and she brings her gentle, compassionate touch to every dental exam.
At-home care is incredibly important for people of all ages, but routine exams and cleanings give you an opportunity to confirm that no underlying issues are present. During your appointment, we’ll check all of your oral structures and make sure no plaque, tartar, or decay is present. From there, we’ll create a treatment plan designed to address your needs. We recommend that you visit our office at least once every six months to keep track of your mouth’s condition.
While many people may not know this, oral cancer is actually the sixth most common form of cancer in the world. The good news is dentists like Dr. Cabansag performs routine oral cancer screenings every time you visit for an exam. Using our advanced intraoral cameras as well as digital X-rays, we can pinpoint the early signs of oral cancer and make sure you are on the path towards diagnosis and treatment should we catch any of the signs.
Is your child in need of dental care? Whether it’s a routine cleaning, an athletic mouthguard, or a series of dental sealants to protect their developing smile, at Encore Dentistry, we make sure to create a positive and welcoming environment for patients of all ages. No matter what your child’s needs may be, we’ll always be patient, kind, and accommodating to their needs. Making a good first impression is sure to make all of your future visits easier moving forward.
Fluoride is one of the most important minerals for tooth enamel. It keeps teeth strong, but also aids in remineralization, which is the natural repair process that teeth undergo. With a brief fluoride treatment, either for yourself or for your child, you’re able to give your teeth the minerals they need to remain strong for the long term. Plus, it only takes a single appointment to complete! We typically recommend fluoride treatments once a year, but this can vary depending on your risk of cavity development.
One of the most effective solutions for preventing tooth decay (other than at-home care and professional cleanings, of course), dental sealants offer long-term protection for your child’s most vulnerable teeth. By painting thin layers of resin onto your child’s molars and premolars, we offer the peace of mind you need as your child perfects their at-home brushing and flossing. You can expect up to 10 years of protection with dental sealants.
Do you have an active family? If so, you’re going to want to make sure that both you and all or your family members don’t wind up with a dental emergency while playing their favorite sport. Football, basketball, hockey, and karate all carry a high risk for sudden impact, and professional-grade, digitally-designed athletic mouthguards can provide reassurance that your family’s smiles stay intact throughout the season. In just two appointments, we can get you a mouthguard that is more comfortable, lasts longer, and ensures reliable protection.
