Unfortunately, the majority of Americans have had a cavity by the time they are 18, and many Americans currently have gum disease.
Dental health is closely connected to your overall health, as well as your confidence and comfort. What’s the lowest-cost way of getting great dental health? Preventing dental problems from developing in the first place!
We provide regular checkups and cleanings, dental education, and preventive services in order to help you avoid costly and painful problems from developing later.
Preventive Dentistry Services
Your first line of defense against dental pain and high dental costs is preventive care, which includes:
- Professional Cleaning: Our dental hygienists are well-practiced with the latest teeth cleaning techniques and tools. They can prevent bacteria and tartar from building up on your teeth, keep your gums healthy, and leave your teeth feeling smooth and flawless.
- Scanning Technology: We use digital x-rays, three-dimensional scans, and tiny oral cameras to create detailed, information-rich records of your teeth, gums, and jawbones. We can see tiny, hidden features and compare them over time to catch any changes.
- Checkups: A professional examination after your dental cleaning can take just a few minutes with the doctor. The dentist will assess your teeth, gums, and scans with an trained eye to catch any developing problems before they become worse.
Any time we see developing health issues, we will advise you on proper care to make sure those do not develop into more serious conditions. Preventing other dental issues saves you pain, money, and frustration.
Dental Health Education
Of equal importance to regular checkups and cleanings is what you do for your teeth at home. We’ll help you and encourage you to take care of your own oral health.
If you brush just twice a day for two minutes per session and floss once per day, you’ll greatly increase your chances of having a great dental checkup each time you visit us.
During your appointment, we will talk to you about your hygiene routines and make suggestions for improvements that can boost your health.
Let us know if you need any resources that will help you or your family to have better at-home dental health habits. If you feel embarrassed that you’re not doing enough, it’s okay! It’s never too late to build a new habit, and we have lots of experience helping patients just like you.
