If you have been on track with your dental cleanings and exams this year, good for you! Or should we say, good for your smile. If you have not, there is still time to make the most of your dental insurance benefits this year by seeing Dr. Don W. Heyen in Wichita Falls, Texas for preventative care.

This is important, because routine dental maintenance is good for not only your smile but for your pocketbook as well, as most dental health providers pay 100% for preventative care. Also, seeing your dental team in the fall gives your dentist time to address any oral health concerns discovered before the holiday season.

When you come in for your checkup, we will:

-Review your overall health along with your any medications you are taking.

-Thoroughly examine your oral cavity, including teeth, gums, and oral tissues.

-Check for oral cancer.

-Thoroughly clean and polish your teeth.

-Address any oral hygiene concerns you may have, as well as any oral conditions we find during your examination.

-Take dental x-rays are if you have not had them yet this year and if you have an oral health issue which requires more frequent monitoring.

-Recommend treatment for any dental issues. This may include referring you to an oral care specialist, running additional diagnostics, or providing you with dental fillings, crowns, or other needed restorations.

Be sure to maximize your returns with your end-of-year dental checkup and preventative care. Our Heyen DDS Family & Cosmetic Dentistry team is happy to work with you to determine which dental treatments are covered by your plan. Dr. Don W. Heyen looks forward to helping you maintain your healthy smile in Wichita Falls, Texas throughout the year!
