Preventive Dental Care

We recommend that you come in for a cleaning and check-up every six months so we can identify and prevent a variety of oral health problems. Each visit will be different as they are tailored to meet your specific dental needs, but generally they will include the following:

  • Reviewing your concerns, dental chart and medical history to determine the most appropriate course of care for you.
  • Screening for oral cancer, periodontal disease, gum disease, tooth decay, and TMJ.
  • Diagnostic x-rays once a year, or as necessary.
  • Cleaning your teeth to remove the plaque, tartar and bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease, then polishing them to smooth the surface and remove light stains.
  • We recommend the application of a fluoride treatment in order to prevent tooth decay.
