Our preventive oral care services

If you only visit your dentist when you have a toothache or other problems, you’re not maximizing the benefits of preventive dentistry. A proactive preventative approach to dental care prevents problems rather than waiting for issues to occur to treat them. 

Our office complements at-home dental care with the following services as part of our comprehensive preventive dental care approach.

  • Dental exams: We offer routine dental exams to inspect your mouth for signs of misalignments, cavities, gum disease, and other problems. Dental exams allow us to detect and treat oral problems before they advance. 
  • Digital x-rays: Digital radiographs are a perfect way to understand what is happening inside the tooth and the surrounding structures. Our office uses modern x-rays that emit minimal radiation while giving us a clear picture of your oral health. Digital x-rays remove the guesswork out of dentistry for precise treatments. 
  • Dental cleanings: Despite your conscientious brushing and flossing, you can’t access every nook and cranny in your mouth with home dental tools. Professional cleanings at our office remove plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas for an issue-free smile.
  • Dental sealants: A tooth sealant is a thin plastic coating applied to the teeth to prevent cavities in the deep grooves of posterior teeth. Dental sealants are amazingly effective in cavity prevention when combined with good oral hygiene.
  • Fluoride treatments: We offer fluoride treatments to patients of all ages. While we can obtain fluoride from drinks and food, we administer topical fluoride treatments to strengthen your enamel and prevent cavities and tooth decay. Fluoride treatment is a fast, painless procedure, but the benefits are long-lasting.
  • Athletic mouthguards: Are you active in contact sports? Whether you are an amateur, weekend warrior, or professional athlete, you should consider a custom-fitted mouthguard to protect your smile from sports injuries. A sports guard absorbs the impact from knocks and blows to reduce the severity of damage to your teeth, jaw, and soft tissues.
