Preventative Care – Helping maintain your healthy smile!

Our dental team is in place to catch and tackle oral diseases before they affect your oral health. We do this by offering regular checkups, x-rays, cleanings and preventative oral information. The most common oral diseases are tooth decay and gum disease. Our goal is to prevent these diseases or stop them before they cause damage to your teeth and oral surroundings.

Comprehensive Examination – Includes digital x-rays of all teeth and full examination of teeth, gum, oral mucosa (skin of the mouth), tongue and lips.

Limited Examination – Includes digital x-ray and examination of area of concern plus focused consultation with doctor on treatment plan.

Dental Cleanings – Although you may brush daily, there are areas that are hard to reach and require professional cleanings and regular maintenance. We offer various levels of cleanings depending on calculus deposits and overall oral and gingival health.

Fluoride Treatment – In a preventative attempt we also offer professional fluoride treatments which helps in preventing decay by strengthening the tooth.

Sealants – This is another tool we use for healthy teeth to lower the risk of dental decay on teeth surfaces. It is placed in the grooves of your teeth to minimize food build- up and possible decay on surfaces.
