Protect Your Mouth With Preventive Dental Care

Whether it’s been six months or six years since your last dental exam, our general dental care can help you reach a better state of oral health. We use some of the latest technology, such as sophisticated cavity detectors that help us find decay in its earliest stages when it’s easiest to treat.

Our team will check you not just for cavities but also for problems like gum disease and oral cancer. During your exam, we’ll clean plaque from your teeth, focusing especially on areas that are tough to reach with a toothbrush and floss at home. Other preventive services include:

  • Dental Sealants – Protect tough-to-clean back teeth from decay. Using an air abrasion technique, we apply the sealants for a durable bond that should last years.
  • Fluoride Treatments – Fight cavities with a coating of fluoride that strengthens and remineralizes your tooth enamel.
  • Mouthguards – A custom mouthguard can help you prevent damage and wear caused by teeth grinding or get a better night’s rest by keeping your airway open while you sleep. We can also fit you for a mouthguard to wear during athletic activities.
  • Halitosis – Our dentists can help determine the cause of your bad breath or dry mouth, a common cause of halitosis, and provide products that offer relief. Left untreated, dry mouth can make you more susceptible to tooth decay.
  • Gum Disease Treatment – Because you can’t have healthy teeth without healthy gums, we screen for gum disease during every dental exam. If you have gum disease, we’ll treat it with a deep cleaning process called scaling and root planing.
