If it has been more than six months since your last routine checkup, it is time for a teeth cleaning in Corpus Christi, Texas! Dr. Anthony Gonzalez recommends that you and your family have a routine checkup twice a year. This checkup includes a thorough dental cleaning and a dental exam. Our hygienist will clean your teeth using a small metal tool. Then the hygienist will floss your teeth, polish them, and apply fluoride. Our dentist will examine all of your teeth and your gums for signs of decay, gingivitis, and other oral health problems. Dr. Anthony Gonzalez may also decide to take X-rays to get a closer, more complete look at your smile.

We urge you to schedule an appointment with our office immediately if you experience any dental pain or if you have a dental emergency. The following symptoms are reasons to schedule an appointment:

  • Toothache
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • The loss of a tooth
  • Objects caught between teeth
  • Lost filling
  • Lost crown
