Exams & Cleaning At
Forest Trail Dental Care


At Forest Trail Dental Care in Temple, TX, we understand the foundational role that regular dental exams and cleanings play in maintaining not just oral health, but overall well-being. Our practice, led by Dr. Christopher Wilkinson and Dr. Taylor Wilkinson, is dedicated to providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art dental care to families across Central Texas.

Comfortable Teeth Cleaning

Dental health is a journey that continues throughout life, and our team is here to ensure each step of that journey is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Our dental cleanings are designed to not only thoroughly clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar build-up that regular brushing can’t manage, but also to examine your mouth for any signs of potential issues like gum disease, oral cancer, and other irregularities. This proactive approach allows us to manage small problems before they become larger issues.

Comprehensive Oral Health Exams

Our exams go beyond just checking for cavities and gum disease. We conduct thorough oral cancer screenings because early detection is crucial for successful treatment. Oral cancer can often go unnoticed due to its subtle symptoms, but with regular screenings, we aim to catch it early, significantly improving outcomes.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is vital for your overall health. That’s why we recommend regular dental check-ups and cleanings, alongside good at-home care such as brushing with fluoride toothpaste and avoiding sugary drinks. We also recommend protective measures like wearing guards during sports to prevent dental injuries.

Preventing Gum Disease

Gum disease affects almost half of the adult population, often without any noticeable symptoms until it’s advanced. Regular dental visits are key to early detection and treatment, preventing more serious complications like tooth loss and contributing to conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Our team provides personalized care plans and lifestyle advice to manage and prevent gum disease effectively.

Sedation Options for Anxiety-Free Visits

We understand that dental visits can cause anxiety for some patients. To make your experience as comfortable as possible, we offer sedation options, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas), to help you relax without the need for arranging a driver afterward.
