Checkups & Cleanings

Even when you brush and floss the recommended amount each and every day, dental problems can be trickier than many patients realize. That’s why our doctors here at Rio Dental & Orthodontics emphasizes routine checkups and cleanings as the most important way for children, adults, and patients of all ages to keep their smiles healthy and happy for life. During these visits, our professional approach will reveal even the smallest and subtlest problems that may have gone unnoticed, allowing treatment to stay simple and effective. Please contact us today if you have any questions for our team, or if you’re ready to schedule your family’s first appointments at either our Farmers Branch or Irving, TX location.

In-Depth Checkups

Dental CheckupsDuring the examination process, our doctors and staff members want to learn everything we can about your unique smile and what can be done to help it be at its very best. We’ll review every tooth (baby or adult), the gum tissue, the bite, the jaw, any existing restorative work that’s still in place (such as fillings and crowns), and more in order to form a complete picture. Advanced digital X-rays will help us see what the naked eye can’t as well. Once our doctors have all of this important information, they can sit down with you to discuss your oral health (or your child’s) and what treatments they recommend to overcome any existing dental damage or discomfort.

Refreshing Cleanings

Refreshing CleaningsHygiene appointments are also a very important part of the preventive care process! Over time, dangerous bacteria are constantly gathering in the form of sticky plaque and stubborn tartar within the mouth, threatening to cause cavities and gum disease. A thorough cleaning with our team will help remove these areas, keeping your smile clean and polished. We’re also happy to go over proper brushing and flossing techniques with patients who need a little extra help.

You can play a part in preparing your child for his or her first visit to our office. Informing your child of the visit as an exciting experience for both of you can ease any hesitations. As a parent try to act relaxed, since your child may sense any anxiety on your part.

Explain to your child that the doctor will “count, brush, and maybe take pictures of their teeth”. We also ask that you assume the role of a silent observer. Cooperation and trust must be established directly between the doctor, staff, and your child and not through you. Your child may become confused if receiving instructions from multiple sources.

We recommend bringing your baby in for their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing (whichever comes first). During this appointment, we will examine your baby’s mouth to track their dental development and discuss age-appropriate dental care.

It’s easy to make appointments to visit our office online or over the phone. Rio Dental sees patients both for checkups and dental emergencies. Using our online scheduler, you can select the location and time slot that works best for you for either type of appointment. If you have any questions regarding our practice, or simply prefer to make your appointment with a live member of staff, please don’t hesitate to call!

Rio Dental Group accepts most PPO insurances. We recommend that new patients and returning patients with new insurance policies reach out to us before their appointment to confirm coverage. Our Fort Worth location also sees patients who are covered by Medicaid and CHIP programs.

We don’t like surprises, either! Our staff is prepared to discuss the cost of dental services before you undergo treatment so that you know what to expect in terms of fees. The cost of your services will be due at the end of your appointment. Our office accepts payment by cash, credit card, or check.

Rio Dental Group allows patients to pay with their CareCredit card. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to cover out-of-pocket costs at over 225,000 providers nationwide. After leaving the office, card holders will be able to make convenient monthly payments towards their balance. To learn more, visit the CareCredit website.
