Cleanings & Prevention

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore and maintain your oral health.

Dental Exams & Cleanings

At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will include an x-ray exam, oral cancer screening, gum disease evaluation, examination of tooth decay and a checkup of existing restorations.

Digital and Panoramic X-Rays

Dental x-rays are diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan.

Sealants

A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars and any deep grooves of teeth to help prevent tooth decay. A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screening is an examination performed by a dentist or doctor to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth, head and neck. The goal of oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early, when there is a greater chance for a cure.

Oral Hygiene Aids

Oral home care routines are equally as important as regular dental checkups. Brushing your teeth, flossing, mouth wash and tongue cleaners should all be used regularly to ensure a healthy smile between dental visits.
