We recommend regular professional cleanings and dental examinations to ensure your optimal dental health. For most patients, this means coming for a preventative dentistry appointment every 3 to 6 month depending on each patient's gum condition.
Professional cleaning removes the cavity-causing tartar and plaque that isn’t removed by regular brushing and flossing. Our hygienist uses special tools to clean and polish your teeth. We may also provide fluoride treatment to strengthen your enamel against decay.
A dental examination is the best way to detect the early signs of gum disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay. Early detection gives you the best chance of successful treatment. We may also take x-rays of your teeth and mouth to assist in diagnosis.
Food particles and plaque can build up in the tiny ridges and valleys in your molars, providing an ideal environment for decay-causing bacteria to grow. Dental sealants prevent this from happening by creating a physical barrier on your teeth. Sealants also provide a smooth surface that is easier to clean with a toothbrush. Although sealants are most often used to protect children’s teeth, any patient can benefit from them.
