At Madden Dental in Bellaire, Texas, Dr. Karisha Madden and our team are pleased to boost your smile this summer with a professional dental exam and cleaning. We have found our dental exams and cleanings to be the perfect complement to your daily at-home oral care when it comes to maintaining your oral health.

According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), patients who receive routine dental checkups every six months benefit from improved oral health. The AGD also says that routine dental exams and cleanings may help lower the risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. In fact, life-threatening medical conditions, such as oral cancer, are often detected in their early stages during a routine dental exam. Regular dental exams and cleanings also help to prevent gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath.

During your checkup, our experienced team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and take X-rays as needed. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, polish your teeth and floss them. We will also check for signs of tooth decay and gum disease, make sure your bite is aligning properly, and check for signs of tooth grinding, tmj and oral cancer. Having your teeth checked regularly also allow us to detect and fix issues in the early stages when they are the easiest and least invasively treated.

So if you are ready to make your smile sizzle with confidence this summer, please call us today at (713) 667-8080 to schedule your dental cleaning and exam with Dr. Karisha Madden and our caring team in Bellaire, Texas!
