Procedures Offered

Comprehensive Oral Examination

A comprehensive oral examination allows our dentists to check the state of your oral health and detect any emerging problems. The dentist also looks for signs of oral cancer, which is most treatable at early stages. Digital X-rays look inside the teeth and can find early-stage decay.

Dental Cleaning

Professional dental cleanings are a must for good oral health. The hygienist removes all plaque and tartar from the teeth, helping to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. They provide vital home care instruction to help you keep your teeth healthy at home between visits.

Dental Sealants

Sealants are a safe plastic resin that the hygienist paints onto the biting surface of the molars. The resin helps to fill in the molars' deep crevices, preventing food or plaque buildup that causes decay.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a natural substance that helps strengthen teeth and prevent decay. Fluoride treatments are administered at this office as an important component of pediatric dental treatment. The fluoride is applied to the teeth in a gel, foam, or varnish form.

Custom Oral Appliances

Our office can fabricate custom oral appliances that can protect your teeth and gums during sports, alleviate sleep apnea symptoms to provide an open airway while you sleep, or relieve stress on the temporomandibular joint caused by clenching or grinding of the teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Preventive Dentistry

What is the goal of preventive dentistry?
Preventive dentistry aims to keep your natural teeth in the best possible condition for many years. As we age, many people find that poor oral care habits lead to premature tooth loss and other serious issues. Maintaining twice-yearly visits reinforces the importance of preventive care.
Is flouride safe for children?
Even young children can receive fluoride treatments. Fluoride varnish hardens immediately in contact with saliva. Some children who receive too much fluoride develop dental fluorosis, which is mostly a cosmetic condition.
If I have healthy teeth, do I still need dental cleanings?
Your healthy teeth will not stay healthy for long if you do not care for them. Comprehensive dental exams and X-rays can catch hidden problems and prevent future complications.
Why is it so important to prevent gum disease?
Gum disease causes tooth loss. Most patients can prevent it by maintaining an excellent home care routine and visiting the dentist twice yearly for cleaning and exams. If you have any signs of gum disease, including red, swollen, bleeding gums, visit us as soon as possible.
Why should I bring my young child to the dentist when their baby teeth will eventually fall out?
Dentists caution that a lack of early dental care can cause long-standing problems with a child's oral health. Children with tooth decay in their primary teeth are more likely to develop it in their permanent teeth.
