Dental Care in Midlothian, Texas

Dr. Buie believes in the power of prevention and early detection as a means of promoting healthy teeth and providing personalized oral health care.
What Should You Expect During a Dental Exam?
What Should You Expect During a Professional Dental Cleaning?
Unlike most dental offices where a dental hygienist cleans your teeth, Dr. Buie performs his own cleanings, which allows him to spend more time examining your mouth and ensuring that nothing is missed or overlooked. Your routine professional cleanings are an essential component of preventive dentistry and have been shown to reduce the risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath (halitosis), and a host of dental problems.
During your cleaning, Dr. Buie will gently remove any plaque or tartar buildup around your gumline and between your teeth using an instrument called a scaler. Next, he will polish your teeth and floss them, leaving them feeling fresh and minty clean.
Oral Hygiene Practices for Healthy Teeth
Brushing twice a day and flossing daily will help keep your teeth clean and healthy. It’s also important to schedule your routine dental exams and cleanings every six months to ensure your oral health stays in the best of shape.
