Preventive Dentistry

Helping you keep your own natural teeth is our goal. Preventive Dentistry is the best way to achieve that goal. There are many preventive services available to make that happen.

  • Athletic Mouth Guards
  • TMJ
  • Sealants – Sealants are a great way to prevent decay on the molars of children.
  • Cleanings – Research has proven that regular cleanings help prevent tooth loss due to gum disease and decay.
  • Fluoride varnish – Fluoride varnish, when applied after the teeth are cleaned, boost the fluoride content of the enamel. Fluoride makes the tooth more resistant to tooth decay.
  • Oral Hygiene Instructions – We will teach you how to maintain your teeth. At each visit we will evaluate all areas and let you know how to tweak your home care to achieve maximum results.
  • X-rays – Early detection of decay and bone loss are best accomplished with the use of digital x-rays.
