Regular Cleanings & Exams are important for removing plaque and tartar buildup, even for patients who have very healthy teeth and gums.

Periodontal Cleanings involve scaling and root planing to clear out the periodontal pockets before Arestin® antibiotic is applied.

Fluoride Treatments involve a high concentration of fluoride being applied to the teeth to strengthen tooth enamel and reverse early signs of tooth decay.

Dental Sealants offer extra protection on the grooves of the molars to keep bacteria from collecting in hard to clean places and causing tooth decay.

Athletic Mouthguards are custom made for each patient to keep your smile protected while playing contact sports.

Nightguards hold the jaw in a comfortable position during sleep to prevent the teeth from grinding and clenching throughout the night.

Oral Cancer Screenings are quick, painless, and a crucial part of catching oral cancer early when it is highly curable.

Digital Radiographs emit much less radiation than traditional dental X-rays. They also allow the dentist to diagnose and treat dental issues at an early stage so that larger, more costly problems can be prevented.

Orthodontic Treatment leads to better-aligned teeth, which can reduce the risk of trauma and damage to teeth from a poor occlusion (bite) and help prevent gum issues associated with poor tooth position or orientation.

Why is preventive dental care important?

Protecting your smile from damage is always ideal because it reduces the need for invasive, time-consuming, and costly treatments. Preventive treatments are almost always easier and more simple than the restorative care that the patient would otherwise need. For example, routine cleanings help remove plaque that is hard to reach, and they are relatively quick and comfortable for the patient. Receiving a dental filling or root canal, on the other hand, can require the patient to come in for additional appointments and use more of their dental budget.

How can I protect my teeth from dental trauma?

Teeth clenching and grinding is a relatively common occurrence, and over the years, patients can cause irreversible damage to their teeth if they don’t wear a nightguard at night. Wearing a custom nightguard every night is a very simple way to prevent the teeth from damaging each other.
