Cleanings & Prevention

Cleanings & Prevention

Examinations - Your dental health will be monitored by our doctors and staff with thorough, comprehensive examinations. You will receive periodic x-rays as needed, visual examination, gum (periodontal) evaluation and an oral cancer screening. In addition, your jaw joints (TMJ), bite (occlusion) and any of your concerns will be checked.

Routine Cleanings - You'll be treated with gentle care by our hygienists when receiving your periodic teeth cleanings. The health of your gums and teeth will be monitored and any problems addressed and treated. A healthy, beautiful smile will be yours with assistance from our staff.

A preventive program is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet.  It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.

Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
