Dr. Drew Vanderbrook and Dr. Joanne G. Hoppe want to partner with you and each member of your family to help everyone maintain good dental care habits. Our office provides a comprehensive menu of preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry in the historical community of Lakewood in Dallas, TX. Together, with regular checkups, we can help you improve your oral hygiene routine at home. Regardless of which stage of life you or your family members are in, we’re here to help.
Let’s begin with childhood. Your children need dental care just like every other family member. But did you realize that you are actually your child’s first dentist? From the moment you see that first little tooth appear through the gum, dental care needs to begin. After feeding, gently clean your baby’s teeth and gums with a soft cloth dampened with warm water. As they grow and more teeth appear, you can begin to brush with a soft, baby brush and just a dab of toothpaste.
Likewise, everyone in the family should be brushing and flossing their teeth at least twice each day. Our dentists recommend using a soft bristle brush, because harder bristles can scratch your teeth’s enamel. We also recommend a toothpaste with fluoride, a mineral that has been proven to strengthen enamel and help you win the fight against cavities.
Dental Checkup in Lakewood Dallas
Everyone in your family, from the youngest to the eldest, should visit the dentist regularly. When you maintain a regular schedule for your dental cleaning and examinations, we can easily monitor any changes in your oral health that indicate a developing problem. Of course, if we find anything of concern, then Dr. Vanderbrook or Dr. Hoppe will recommend a course of treatment. Our goal is to correct problems early before they have the chance to grow and become bigger problems as well as bigger expenses.
At your checkup, we will clean your teeth, examine for visible signs of tooth decay, check the health of your gums and other soft oral tissue, conduct an oral cancer screening, and take digital x-rays when necessary to uncover any spots of decay that are between teeth or just under the surface.
