Preventive Dental Services
The best way to maintain a healthy smile is to schedule a teeth cleaning every 6 months. While brushing and flossing your teeth at home is good for your oral health, you’ll need our help to remove hardened plaque (tartar).
Patients with periodontal disease tend to have deep gum pockets around teeth that collect plaque and food particles. During scaling and root planing, our dentist removes plaque trapped beneath the gum line and smoothes out tooth roots.
Our team is trained to recognize mouth cancer symptoms and pre-cancerous conditions. During your oral cancer screening, our dentist will examine your mouth, as well as feel oral and neck tissues to detect abnormalities.
While generic mouth guards are sold in sporting good stores, they don’t offer the same level of protection or comfort as a custom mouth guard. A sports mouth guard from our dentist will allow you to breathe, speak, and drink properly so you can focus on the game.
Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease for American children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Our dentist may recommend dental sealants to cover the crevices of your child’s molars (back teeth).
Brushing and flossing your teeth at home isn’t enough to maintain good oral health. We also recommend you schedule dental exams every 6 months so our dentist can check for tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
