Preventative dentistry encompasses all the steps taken to care for your teeth and gums, with the aim of preventing cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.

Dental Check-ups

Regular dental check-ups, typically recommended every six months, are crucial for monitoring your oral health. During these visits, our dental professionals thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of problems, such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer.

Regular Dental Cleaning

Professional dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar that regular brushing and flossing can’t reach. Our hygienists use specialized tools to clean your teeth and gums, helping to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Dental Sealants

What They Are: Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars). These surfaces have grooves that can trap food particles and bacteria, leading to cavities.

How They Help: Sealants act as a barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque and acids. They are especially beneficial for children and teenagers, as their newly erupted permanent teeth are more susceptible to decay.

Fluoride Treatments

What They Are: Fluoride treatments involve the application of fluoride to the teeth in the form of a gel, foam, or varnish. Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens tooth enamel and helps prevent cavities.

How They Help: These treatments can be performed during regular dental visits. They are particularly useful for children, individuals with a history of cavities, and those with high risk factors for tooth decay.

Oral Cancer Screenings

What They Are: Oral cancer screenings are a critical part of our preventative care regimen. During these screenings, our dental professionals carefully examine your mouth, throat, and neck for signs of oral cancer.

How They Help: Early detection of oral cancer significantly increases the chances of successful treatment. Our team uses the latest technology to identify any abnormalities or changes in your oral tissues, ensuring prompt and effective intervention if needed.

Mouthguards and Nightguards

What They Are: Custom-made mouthguards and nightguards protect your teeth from damage due to sports injuries or bruxism (teeth grinding).

How They Help: Mouthguards cushion your teeth during physical activities, reducing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to the lips, tongue, face, or jaw. Nightguards prevent the wear and tear on your teeth caused by grinding, preserving your smile and preventing jaw pain.

Nutritional Counseling

What It Is: Our team offers advice on nutrition and its impact on oral health. Certain foods and beverages can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.

How It Helps: By making informed dietary choices, you can improve your oral health and overall well-being. We provide tips on reducing sugar intake, selecting tooth-friendly snacks, and staying hydrated.
