Why Choose Preventative Dentistry?

Preventative dentistry is the cornerstone of maintaining optimal oral health. Regular check-ups and cleanings, combined with proactive treatments and patient education, help prevent common dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral infections. By addressing these issues early on, we can preserve the health and integrity of your teeth and gums, potentially saving you from more invasive and expensive procedures down the road. 

Our Preventative Dentistry Services

Regular Check-ups

Regular dental check-ups are crucial for detecting any signs of dental problems at an early stage. During these comprehensive examinations, our skilled dentists will assess your oral health, conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, and perform dental X-rays if necessary. By identifying any potential issues early, we can develop an appropriate treatment plan to prevent further complications.

Professional Cleanings

Even with diligent at-home oral care, plaque and tartar can accumulate on your teeth, leading to tooth decay and gum disease. Our professional dental cleanings help remove these stubborn deposits, ensuring a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums. Our skilled dental hygienists use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas, promoting a healthy oral environment.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth (molars and premolars). These sealants act as a barrier, preventing bacteria and food particles from accumulating in the deep grooves and pits of your teeth. By effectively sealing off these vulnerable areas, dental sealants help prevent cavities and promote overall oral health.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay. Our fluoride treatments involve applying a concentrated fluoride solution to your teeth. This simple and painless procedure helps remineralize and strengthen your tooth enamel, providing an added layer of protection against tooth decay and sensitivity.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Early detection is key in successfully treating oral cancer. During your regular check-ups, our dentists perform thorough oral cancer screenings to identify any potential signs or symptoms. By conducting these screenings, we can detect oral cancer at an early stage, significantly improving the chances of successful treatment and recovery.

Gum Disease Evaluation and Treatment

Gum disease, is a common dental condition caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar along the gumline. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and other oral health complications. Our experienced dentists will evaluate the health of your gums, diagnose any signs of gum disease, and recommend appropriate treatments to restore and maintain gum health.

Patient Education

We believe that patient education is a vital aspect of preventative dentistry. Our knowledgeable team will provide you with valuable information and guidance on proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing techniques, the importance of a balanced diet for oral health, and habits to avoid, such as tobacco use. We aim to empower you with the knowledge and tools necessary to maintain a healthy smile at home.
