…serious about improving the health and appearance of your smile?

…looking for a dentist you can trust to stay in-tune with your ever-evolving needs?
Then you certainly came to the right place! We are a comprehensive dental practice that has all the tools, training, and technology to keep your mouth clean and your smile looking its best, for many years to come.
If you do your part to maintain good hygiene habits at home and give us the opportunity to regularly evaluate your situation, you should be able to stay on track.
Come See Your Plano, TX Dentist Every 3-6 Months
By showing up for a professional teeth cleaning and thorough dental exam, you will go along way towards keeping anything from going awry.
These sort of preventive appointments afford us the opportunity to keep a close watch on your oral health, while checking for any irregularities such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and larger health concerns that may be emerging, including cancer.
When we are in-tune with whatever is unfolding in your mouth, we can tackle small problems before they develop into larger (and more costly) scenarios. Doesn’t that sound good?
We thought so!
The best part is that our preventive care is custom-tailored to fit your needs as an individual. You can be sure that you’ll never be just another strange name on a medical chart to us.
Our Checkups Change Lives
We go to great lengths to make everyone feel comfortable in our office. This includes sedation dentistry, when needed. While you are in our midst, we’ll make it easy for you to get the dental care you deserve, even if you have been away from the dentist’s office for far too long.
When you are here, we will examine your mouth for any obvious changes in your teeth, gums, or oral cavity. Our team will clean your teeth to remove any plaque and tartar that has built-up. No matter what you are doing at home, sometimes this stuff can only be removed completely by an oral health professional.
But That’s Not All We Can Do for You.
Other Preventive Dentistry Highlights
Here a some additional ways that 1st In Smiles can help you prevent cavities:
In-Office Fluoride Treatments
Did you know that fluoride is a natural mineral that has been proven to strengthen your enamel and prevent tooth decay?
We can set you up with some right here in our office. Our foam fluoride treatments are a powerful way to help prevent cavities and they can be completed in mere minutes.
Prescription-Strength Fluoride Take-Home Treatments
If we see that you’re prone to tooth decay, we might prescribe an extra-strength fluoride treatment for you to use at home.
In-Office Fluoride Varnish
Having options is always good. This is another quick, effective, concentrated fluoride treatment that we apply directly onto your teeth.
Sealants are a thin, clear coating made of plastic that we paint onto your teeth, usually your molars (back teeth), whose grooves and indentations make them more susceptible to bacteria buildup. These plastic barriers are common cavity prevention treatments for children, but they can also help adults whose teeth are cavity prone.
This blog is one platform that we use to relay useful dentistry-related information. Here, we’ll regularly teach you about helpful ways to prevent tooth decay in-between your visits.
Spoiler alert: drinking fluoridated water, avoiding sugary foods and drinks, flossing, and brushing properly twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste will set you up for success!
