I Need a Dental Exam!

One of the biggest missteps people make when it comes to their oral health is they assume they only need to visit the dentist when a problem appears. However, if you’re experiencing dental discomfort, either in your teeth or gums, it could likely have been avoided if it had been caught sooner. That’s where dental exams and cleanings come in. Dr. Handley is happy to provide exams and cleanings and many other preventive treatments that protect your smile in the long term. Don’t wait; give our dental office a call, and we’ll help you set up your next appointment for preventive dentistry in Cypress, TX! 

When visiting Dr. Handley for a regular checkup, you can expect him to review your medical history as well as perform a visual examination of your oral cavity and facial structures. He will also rely on dental X-rays to provide an in-depth look at your overall tooth structures, especially the areas below the surface of your gums. He will perform an oral cancer screening during this visit to check for abnormalities or growths that might point to a severe problem. He will also look for signs of tooth decay, cavities, or gum disease and recommend possible treatment, if necessary. If it has been a while since your last dental check-up, be sure to schedule an appointment today.
