Preventive Dentistry/Hygiene

Examination

Having healthy teeth and an attractive smile throughout your entire life is possible with proper brushing and flossing, eating a balanced diet, and visiting the dentist regularly. Our comprehensive examination involves an evaluation of your teeth, gums (for periodontal disease), TMJ, and muscles. An important part of your exam is an oral cancer screening.

Teeth Cleaning/Periodontics

Periodic cleanings to remove plaque and tartar will decrease your risk of tooth decay and unhealthy gums. If periodontal disease is diagnosed early, we offer non-surgical therapy to treat the problem.

Hygiene Instruction

All hygiene care is customized to your specific needs and includes instruction on the proper use of an electric toothbrush, flossing aids, Waterpik®, rubber tip stimulators, and prescription toothpastes. The frequency of your cleanings depends entirely upon your needs. It is our goal to work in partnership with you to provide excellent preventive dental care along with a customized home oral health program to maintain your healthy, attractive smile.

Sealants

We offer dental sealants, a resin material that acts as a barrier to protect the teeth from decay. Sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay occurs most often. The threat of decay in the back teeth begins early in life, so children and teenagers are obvious candidates, but adults can sometimes benefit from sealants, as well.

Fluoride Varnish

Fluoride varnish is a highly concentrated form of fluoride applied to the tooth's surface as a type of topical fluoride therapy that can be used to help prevent decay, remineralize the tooth surface, and to treat tooth sensitivity.

What a super group you are! You welcome patients with a smile and friendly talk and all that makes one feel welcome.
