Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Attending regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings with a trusted dentist is the best way for patients to avoid serious dental problems and enjoy confident oral health. During these visits, our team works hard to fully understand every aspect of your unique smile through visual examinations and X-rays. Dr. Hegazin uses the latest technology to ensure that his approach is as thorough as possible and his recommendations for treatment are highly accurate. Additionally, a professional teeth cleaning will banish decay-causing plaque, tartar, and minor stains from your teeth and gums.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease is one of the most widespread health problems in the entire world, not to mention the leading cause of tooth loss among adults in the United States. Here in McKinney, our team works hard every day to catch and treat this serious infection as early as possible in its development. Scaling and root planing is an in-depth dental cleaning that targets dangerous accumulations of plaque beneath the gum line and smooths bacteria-attracting rough spots on the tooth roots. Our goal is to bring back health to your smile and minimize the chances of further flare-ups that threaten your teeth.

Children’s Dentistry

Here in McKinney, Dr. Hegazin is happy to work with patients of all ages and whole families for added convenience. He has a particular talent for helping children feel comfortable and at ease during their dental visits. Our team recommends that parents start planning regular dental appointments at a very young age. Even if your son or daughter only has “baby” teeth, ensuring that they develop properly and maintain health is very important to the eventual success of the adult teeth. We offer several dental services that are child-friendly, including protective dental sealants, tooth-colored fillings, and more.

Dental Sealants

We will most likely recommend dental sealants for younger patients, but adults who struggle with persistent tooth decay may also benefit from their placement. This simple preventive service involves the “sealing” of the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (the premolars and molars), which are especially vulnerable to cavities over time because of their deep pits and grooves. The sealants will prevent food particles and infectious bacteria from gathering in these areas, resulting in a safer and healthier smile.

Nightguards for Bruxism

Bruxism (teeth grinding) is a very common “bad habit” that can negatively affect patients of all ages, many of whom aren’t even aware that it’s happening in the first place. This is because bruxism overwhelmingly takes place at night during sleep, resulting in chronic jaw pain and worn-down teeth with no clear cause. Dr. Hegazin can recognize these telltale signs and will be sure to inform patients if he discovers them during regular dental checkups. The diligent use of a custom-made nightguard can work wonders in mitigating the consequences of bruxism and keeping the teeth safe from harm.

If you or a loved one regularly plays a sport where physical contact (whether with other players, hard surfaces, or objects) is a possibility, it’s important to protect the teeth and gums as strenuously as you would your head or knees. Dr. Hegazin can create a high-quality, custom-made sportsguard for athletes in need, ensuring a stable fit that’s also comfortable and flexible for optimal use. The regular use of a sportsguard has even been shown through studies to help reduce the severity of concussions!

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer is a dangerous and even deadly health problem that is diagnosed in tens of thousands of new patients every year. Early intervention is crucial for a successful recovery, and the Marble Dental McKinney team is here to help. Oral cancer screenings are included in every diagnostic checkup, and Dr. Hegazin will be sure to alert you right away if he discovers any strange oral abnormalities that need further attention.

Lip & Tongue Tie Treatment

Lip and tongue ties are present at birth, but if they do not receive timely treatment, they can continue to cause issues well into adulthood. If your lips or tongue do not have full range of motion, you may find it difficult to speak clearly and eat easily. Fortunately, our team is here to help. Via a minimally invasive procedure known as a frenectomy, we can free up movement of your oral structures and help you to enjoy improved wellness and a heightened overall quality of life.
