Our cleaning and prevention services

Our preventive services preserve the natural dentition and support optimal oral health by preventing the onset, progression, or recurrence of oral problems. Preventing oral issues starts at home with a healthy diet and diligent brushing and flossing. Then, it’s continued in our office with the services below.

  • Routine dental exams: We recommend all patients—young and old—to see a dentist at least once every six months for routine check-ups. These regular exams allow us to detect and treat oral issues like decay, gum disease, and oral cancer before they become significant. 
  • Digital X-rays: Visual exams are vital but can only uncover so much. Dental x-rays are essential for discovering decay, tumors, cysts, bone loss, etc., not visible to the naked eye. X-rays also help in determining the tooth and root positions.
  • Dental cleanings: Cleaning your teeth and gums at home with your toothbrush and dental floss is essential in removing plaque. However, it’s virtually impossible to clean every surface in the mouth. Our dental hygienists use special tools and skills to clean built-up plaque and tartar in hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. 
  • Fluoride treatments: Our topical fluoride treatments help strengthen your enamel to make it more resistant to tooth decay. Although most people get fluoride from water and foods, sometimes, it’s not enough to prevent decay. Our fluoride treatments are designed to replenish the enamel with vital minerals, which helps prevent tooth decay and ensures a healthy smile.
  • Dental sealants: A dental sealant is a thin, natural-looking plastic coating applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth. Fissure sealants protect your teeth from acids and harmful bacteria that cause decay and enamel erosion.
