Preventative & Diagnostic Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.

Professional Cleanings

Your Dental Hygienist will remove dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Included with every hygiene visit is a visual and physical exam to check for abnormal tissue. Early detection is the key to better treatment outcomes.

Sealants

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surface of a tooth to prevent tooth decay. Sealants quickly bond into the depressions and grooves of the tooth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of the tooth.

Fluoride Treatments

Cavities used to be a fact of life. However, during the past few decades, tooth decay has been reduced dramatically. The key reason: fluoride. Fluoride
is a mineral that may occur naturally in all drinking water sources—oceans, lakes, rivers and underground water. Extensive research has shown that optimal levels of fluoride not only reduce caries in children and adults, but also help repair the early stages of tooth decay.
