Cleaning & Prevention

A focus on preventive dentistry helps you maintain the highest standard of oral health while limiting dental expenditures. A partnership between you and our team pays dividends, protecting your smile now and well into the future.

At home, prevention may include brushing and flossing twice a day. But many strategies and oral health aids exist that may fit your situation even better. Often patients are surprised to learn that a particular toothpaste, rinse, or specialized toothpick will serve them best and make all the difference in their efforts. Our team can help customize solutions that enhance your daily efforts, often turning frustration into smiles at the healthy changes that occur.

Your diet plays a critical role in oral health as well. Acidic foods and drinks can accelerate deterioration of your teeth, and certain foods can enhance the health of your supporting jawbone and gums. Our team believes in bringing your efforts and ours into balance for optimum health.

And of course, regular dental exams and cleanings prove vital in preventing decay and gum disease as you keep daily habits consistent. With a proactive approach, together we can prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.


Teeth Cleaning

Everyone loves the smooth, glassy surface of freshly polished teeth.  Our registered dental hygienists help you maintain optimal health, which goes far beyond polished enamel.  With a regular preventive schedule, we can remove the bacterial deposits that lead to dental disease.  But we can also monitor for silent problems, such as tooth decay or gum disease before they become major issues.

Periodontal Therapy

Gum disease continues to be the leading cause of tooth loss in adults today.  A devastating condition when left untreated, periodontitis doesn’t have to write your story.  But a strategic approach with focused treatment and home care is essential to control this chronic bacterial infection. Plus, this disease can aggravate other serious medical conditions that may seem unrelated to your mouth.

Bite Problems/Grinding

Teeth are the hardest substance in our bodies and can withstand a tremendous amount of force.  But damage can occur to this highly mineralized surface, especially when grinding forces start to wear it away.  A habit of nighttime clenching or grinding will harm teeth, muscles, and jaw joints over time.  Protecting against abrasive forces is critical in these cases.

Ortho Screening

Metal grins fill the pages of many high school yearbooks. But braces offer benefits at many different stages of life. Identifying problems at an early age often allows ideal timing in orthodontic treatment, resulting in a perfect outcome. Monitoring growth and development at your child's regular preventive visits is just part of our commitment to your family's dental health.

Sealants

Deep crevices run across the chewing surface of molars. Even though a toothbrush can skim across these surfaces, the narrow grooves trap bacteria beyond the bristles. Cavities may form and end up abscessing without warning, destroying valuable tooth structure. Protecting the grooves with a bonded sealer might be worth exploring.

Oral Cancer Screening

Every time you’re in our chair, we review many aspects of your health.  Subtle changes in the lining of your mouth call for a closer evaluation, regardless of whether you use tobacco or not. Early detection of oral cancer saves many lives every year, and we’re trained to recognize a myriad of oral tissue abnormalities.
