What Is Preventive Dentistry?
Preventive dentistry refers to procedures primarily meant to help patients avoid future difficulties. The cornerstone of preventive dentistry is the twice-annual cleaning and comprehensive examination.
Preventive procedures allow the dentist to check your oral health, track the progress of emerging issues like tooth decay or gum disease, and take action against future problems. Patients who take advantage of preventive services are less likely to need expensive procedures in the future.

Procedures We Offer
Comprehensive Oral Examination
Our expert dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to check for developmental issues and signs of tooth decay and gum disease. They also check your throat and neck to look for signs of oral cancer.
Regular dental cleanings can reduce your chance of developing gum disease and tooth decay. Our skilled hygienists remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth, taking care of surface stains and polishing your teeth to a beautiful shine. The hygienist also provides important instructions on proper home care techniques.
Sealants are a safe plastic resin that a dental professional applies to the molars with a brush. The resin fills in the deep crevices in these teeth, preventing food residue and plaque from becoming trapped and causing tooth decay. Dentists most often use sealants on children and teens, but adults with no existing tooth decay in the molars also stand to benefit.
Both children and adults can receive fluoride treatments after a cleaning. Fluoride hardens and remineralizes tooth enamel, preventing decay. It is a safe treatment that can help to improve your dental health. We use a fluoride varnish, which can be applied in less than a minute. The patient has very few restrictions on food or drink after the treatment.
