Preventative Dentistry

We offer these preventative dentistry services at our comfortable dental office:

  • Professional Teeth Cleaning. We strongly recommend that you come in twice a year for professional cleaning. Using safe, top-of-the-line equipment, we gently remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Brushing your teeth and flossing at home goes a long way to keeping your teeth clean, but a professional teeth cleaning ensures all areas are cleaned, including hard-to-reach spots. There’s nothing like the clean feeling in your mouth after getting your teeth professionally cleaned.
  • Complete Oral Exam. When you come in for your bi-annual preventative dentistry appointment, you will receive a complete oral exam. Using an intraoral camera, the dentist will examine your mouth, looking for tooth decay, gum disease, infection, and other possible problems. We also use X-rays to check for problems that are not visible on the surface. We stay up-to-date with advanced technology, so we can offer you safe, effective preventative care.
  • Fluoride Treatments. Fluoride treatments are applied directly to the teeth to help keep your teeth healthy and strong. Fluoride helps teeth resist tooth decay. This is an easy way to prevent cavities.
  • Oral Cancer Screening. Oral cancer is preventable. The screening is quick and easy, and it can detect oral cancer in the early stages so you can get treated for it as soon as possible.
  • Occlusal Guard. Occlusal guards or night guards are removable devices to help prevent grinding and clenching of teeth while a patient sleeps. It can help relieve pain, and protect your teeth.

Happy. Healthy. Honest.

We Appreciate You and We are Grateful for Your Trust.
