Teeth Cleaning Q & A

What Are Teeth Cleanings?

The Academy of General dentistry promotes a twice a year dental cleaning for the continued care and health of your teeth and gums. These cleanings are the best tool in preventing other serious dental health issues, like cavities, gum disease, or impacted teeth.

At West Brazos Dental Center, we strive to make every dental experience a pleasant one. We are especially committed to the health and comfort of our patients, of all ages. To ensure your comfort we offer a relaxed setting, conscious sedation options, and special touches that make you feel at home.
