When you are shopping for oral hygiene products, should only consider those that have earned American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal means the product has been rigorously researched and tested for effectiveness and safety as part of a daily oral hygiene routine.

Your twice-a-year dental checkup at Vital Dental is also important for maintaining long-term oral health. This will clean away dangerous hardened tartar from your smile and monitor your mouth for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. The checkup also includes a basic cancer screening for early detection of oral or pharyngeal cancer.

If you have any concerns about TMJ disorder or if you’ve experienced any discomfort in your jaw muscles, you should tell your dentist so they can give it a closer look.

At the end of the checkup, we might recommend some basic maintenance treatments, such as a fluoride treatment or the application of dental sealants.

If you are concerned about some aspect of your oral health in McKinney, Texas, you should call (972) 347-0945 to schedule a checkup at Vital Dental.
