Preventative Care in Bryan TX

Dr. McLeroy and our entire dental team are dedicated to helping you and your family remain in optimal oral health. We provide preventive dentistry, such as regular cleanings and exams, fluoride treatment, and dental sealants, to help protect you against oral health problems before they start.


Exams

Exams are performed at every six-month check-up and can help Dr. McLeroy determine the state of your oral health. During the examination, Dr. McLeroy will examine for signs of oral cancer, tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease, and problems with existing dental restorations (crowns, bridges, fillings, etc.)


Diagnosis of Periodontal Disease

At every regular check-up, Dr. McLeroy and Brenda, our hygienist, will search for symptoms and signs of periodontal (gum) disease, which is caused by a build-up of plaque and calculus. If detected, Dr. McLeroy will work with periodontal specialists to help get you back to optimal oral health.


Periodontal Maintenance

To keep you safe from the recurrence of periodontal (gum) disease, Dr. McLeroy and our hygienist may recommend regular periodontal maintenance cleanings once every three months. During these periodontal cleanings, we will measure the depths of the gum pockets and thoroughly remove built-up plaque and calculus. If necessary, additional periodontal treatment may be recommended at this time.
