When it comes to prevention, maintaining your scheduled dental cleanings and exams are two of the most important steps you can take. Combined with daily brushing and flossing, these routine visits can help to significantly reduce your chances for cavities and gum disease. We use specialized instruments and gentle techniques to thoroughly clean all surfaces of your teeth and gums.
Comprehensive examinations include:
- Review of medical history and implications on oral health including sleep apnea and acid reflux
- Signs of tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Tooth wear
- Oral cancer
- TMJ evaluation
Most importantly, we’re here to listen to any concerns you may have.
Benefits of Preventive Dental Care
- Saves money by identifying small problems while they are still minor and easily treatable
- Helps to prevent future issues before they become painful
- Provides helpful information to improve home care and daily hygiene habits
American Dental Association (ADA) recommends regular dental checkups/cleanings every six months (or yearly, as determined by your dentist) as preventive dental care. Following this bi-yearly personal recommendation from your dentist will help to identify any issues or changes to your dental health and ultimately will save you money.
