Preventative

We provide exceptional preventive care, including exams and cleanings, as well as education on proper dental hygiene. Early detection of dental problems is essential to gain optimal oral health.

Dental Cleanings and Exams

It is recommended by the American Dental Association that everyone should visit the dentist at least twice per year to ensure optimal oral health. Our team will consistently provide you with high-quality, professional dental cleanings and thorough preventive exams.

The purpose of dental cleanings is to rid the teeth of harmful buildup of plaque and tartar. During cleanings we will polish your teeth to help remove light surface stains and prevent plaque from easily re-attaching.

During your appointment we will evaluate your overall oral hygiene, check your bite and jaw for any problems, and evaluate your risk of tooth decay. Dental X-rays are taken when necessary and we conduct an oral cancer screening as part of every cleaning appointment.

Regular professional dental cleanings and exams are essential for attaining a healthy mouth. Our talented and experienced team can provide gentle, yet thorough, dental cleanings and exams to help you maintain beautiful and healthy teeth, gums and smile.  Contact us today to request an appointment for a dental exam and cleaning.

In addition to routine cleanings and exams, the following treatments can greatly benefit your oral health.

Fluoride Treatment

We offer fluoride treatments to prevent tooth decay for our patients. Fluoride increases your teeth’s resistance to the build-up of decay-causing plaque and sugars. It can also speed re-mineralization as well as disrupt acid erosion in teeth.

Sealants

Sealants are highly effective in preventing tooth decay and cavities on your molars and premolars. These areas are the most susceptible to cavities due to the anatomized grooves.  Typically, children get sealants on their permanent molars and premolars as soon as these teeth come in.

Sealants are not a substitute for brushing your teeth. It is important to maintain proper oral hygiene. Also, sealants do not protect between the teeth, so it is essential to continue to floss daily.

3D Dental Imaging

Our Plan Meca imaging unit captures a 3D profile of your entire skull. This unique imaging allows us to see details previously not detected in traditional x-rays.
