When someone comes in for their healthy mouth cleaning, they get the cleaning, they get the fluoride treatment, they get the x-rays, they get the exam, but we also do oral cancer screenings. We've got equipment to help us detect possible cancerous lesions sooner than we can see it with the naked eye. That's a big part of the regular cleaning. We want to make sure that they're still comfortable. We want to make sure that they're still happy with the appearance of their smile and that there's nothing serious going on that we can address early before it turns into a much bigger problem.

Teeth Cleaning and Dental Exam Process
You should be coming in twice a year (every six months) to have your teeth cleaned and examined by the team here at Texas Grins in Willow Park, TX. There are two steps to your dental cleaning and exam:
- Step #1 – The first step of the process is your teeth cleaning. Your hygienist will take digital X-rays as needed and then go about thoroughly cleaning your teeth. This is needed regardless of how well you brush and floss your teeth. It is just simply impossible for you to clean everywhere inside your mouth. Your hygienist will remove any lingering food debris and make sure your mouth is as clean as possible.
- Step #2 – Dr. Crain will take over during the second step. He will thoroughly examine your mouth and evaluate any problem areas. He will also perform Oral DNA testing and an oral cancer screening. Should you need further treatment, Dr. Crain in Willow Park, TX dentist will go over your options with you, and together, you will choose the next course of action.
