Dental Check-ups & Cleanings
Practicing regular oral hygiene at home is very important for maintaining a strong, healthy smile, but it’s not all that patients need. After all, diseases and damage can linger in subtle ways, staying hidden from untrained eyes until the problem becomes more severe. That’s why Dr. Wendy Winarick and her team strongly recommend that people of all ages attend an evaluation and hygiene appointment at Dental Station every six months. We do everything we can to always provide comfort and personalized care that helps you feel at ease. Our Waco, TX team loves welcoming families from nearby areas, including Hewitt, Lorena, West, Woodway, and beyond.
By locating areas of pain or damage at the earliest stages possible, Dr. Winarick can make your treatment at our Waco office simple and comfortable. Your check-up will consist of a thorough visual examination, during which our team will carefully inspect the surface of each individual tooth, your gums, your bite, and other important areas. Digital X-rays will allow us to also clearly view your inner oral structures, creating a complete picture of your unique smile. Once we have all of this information at our disposal, Dr. Winarick can work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs.
Every day, patients of all ages experience the accumulation of plaque on their teeth. Plaque is a film-like substance filled with damaging bacteria. It can be easily cleaned away by simply brushing and flossing, but if it’s left in place too long, it can harden into tartar, which is not so easily removed. At Dental Station, a thorough cleaning with one of our dedicated hygienists will get rid of these dangerous areas, leaving your mouth feeling refreshed and your smile looking better than ever. They can also provide instructions for how to better care for your oral health at home. Please contact our Waco, TX dental office today if you have any questions, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment!
