Routine visits to the dentist for a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam are two of the best ways to prevent dental problems. Our patients tell us that a visit with Dr. Bimal Mehta is unlike any other visit to the dentist. Our routine examinations and dental cleanings are comprehensive to look for signs of tooth decay and cavities, gum disease, tooth wear, oral cancer and occlusal (bite) instability.
What To Expect From Your Dentist Visit
You can expect to receive prompt attention during your visit to our Houston dentist office. Dr. Mehta spends one-on-one time with each patient to discuss their goals and concerns. He spends time explaining treatment options and helping you make the best decisions for your long-term dental health and happiness. Your visit will include:
- Professional dental cleaning
- Dental x-rays
- Periodontal screening
- Dental caries (cavities) screening
- Occlusal analysis to examine the position of the bite
Importance of Routine Dental Cleanings
Many patients want to know how often they should visit the dentist for a teeth cleaning. In general, most people benefit from bi-annual visits to the dentist (every six months). Other patients, however, may benefit from more frequent visits to ensure optimal dental health.
Routine teeth cleanings and dental examinations allow us to identify problems in the earliest stages and recommend the most conservative treatment options. Additionally, routine dental care is an important component of post treatment care to ensure that your dental restorations continue to look and function their best.
Dental Insurance and Payment Options
To make your family dentist visit as easy and stress free as possible, we provide a number of financial services. We accept most major dental insurance and will submit claims on your behalf. We also accept cash, check and credit cards, as well as offer, interest-free financing options through Care Credit.
