Routine Dental Cleanings
The state of your oral health comes down to two essential factors:
- How well you floss and brush
- Your commitment to regular dental cleanings
Regular dental cleanings are scheduled every six months to keep your family smiling strong. At cleanings, a dental exam also takes place, though most patients never even realize it. These quintessential general dentistry visits are remembered by the brushing, flossing and examination at the hands of Dr. Marchbanks and his friendly Arlington staff.
Dental fillings are needed when part of a tooth has been damaged due to decay. Fillings can be blended beautifully into a tooth’s natural color, or can be made from other materials. Fillings can also be used to restore chewing surfaces on badly worn teeth.
Your general dentist will not only provide regular cleanings, but regular oral exams. These take place at your biannual cleaning appointments, and often patients don’t even realize the exam is taking place. Dr. Marchbanks and members of his staff deftly check the health of teeth, gums and the rest of your mouth to identify any signs of problems that could become serious later. The keystone of Dr. Marchbanks’ general dentistry is preventative care, meaning problems are caught early and treated conservatively.
Mark C. Marchbanks D.D.S. also takes these exams as an opportunity to explain procedures and treatments in an age-appropriate manner for any member of the family.
When a tooth has become broken or too damaged by decay, a patient will be given all the options. If a filling, crown or other dental treatment will fix it, it’s Mark C. Marchbanks D.D.S.’s practice to identify the most conservative treatment option possible. When there is too much damage to the tooth, however, an extraction might be the only option.
Dr. Marchbanks and his staff are known for making even the scary procedures as comfortable as possible. We do both simple and surgical tooth extractions, using the optimal sedation options specific to each patient and procedure.
