PREVENTATIVE CARE

Oral Hygiene

While at our office, we make sure that you receive the highest level of service and ensure that our dental work is of the highest quality. To ensure that you maintain excellent oral health, this level of quality needs to extend into your personal oral hygiene routine. 

Cavities don’t know what age you are. 

We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white. If you have any questions about your current hygiene, please ask at your next visit.

Your teeth are not the only important part of your mouth. Healthy gums are essential to oral hygiene, as well. We can provide periodontal cleanings and treatment or refer you to one of our recommended specialists.


Regular Preventive

We use a new procedure and technology called Ultrasonic Piezo Teeth Scaler, which produces less vibration and noise, making the cleaning experience better for our patients.

The option to receive Fluoride treatments to aid you in maintaining your oral health. Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. It also reverses early decay. 


Root Planning and Scaling

Often there is plaque and tartar that accumulates below the gum line. In this scenario, we will clean and smooth the root surface area with special instruments to ensure that the area has the best possibility to heal. If this area is not kept clean, the entire area can become infected with the bacteria that causes inflammation, bone loss and other systemic effects. It’s crucial to have your dentist regularly check all your teeth and gums if you have bleeding during brushing. We employ the piezo scaler for scaling, which offers a superior patient experience.


Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screenings are an essential part of your dental exam. With advances in modern technology, we are now able to detect tissue changes earlier. Earlier detection of a potential problem means earlier treatment, which leads to a better outcome.

 Advanced oral cancer screening is often completed with a special light or similar device that allows us to view issues that can’t always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions.


An Interesting fact:

Half of all patients diagnosed with oral cancer for the first time do not have any known risk factors for cancer. However, certain lifestyle choices can have a significant impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you smoke or drink alcohol, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
