Cleaning and Prevention
Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. Your visit will include an individual consultation and dental exam, cleaning, x-rays (when needed), and a focus on encouraging proper home care and overall oral health. We also offer dental sealants to help protect teeth against decay, fluoride treatments for healthier and stronger enamel, and custom athletic mouthguards and nightguards to protect your smile.
In addition to being interested in the beauty of your smile, we are concerned with the health of your mouth. To help you achieve and maintain your optimal oral health, we focus on preventive dental care and regular dental checkups. This not only keeps your teeth and gums looking and feeling great (and your breath smelling better), but keeping up with your oral health can also significantly reduce the amount of money you’ll have to spend on dental treatment later in life.
What are some preventative measures I can take?
Brush with a fluoride toothpaste
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush after each meal
