A Comprehensive Overview of our Preventive Services
Our office stresses the importance of preventive dentistry by providing you with clinical, therapeutic and educational services to enhance your oral and overall health.
Our team of licensed, Registered Dental Hygienists work closely with the Doctors and you to establish and customize a home-care regimen for in-between visits. We will provide you with Home Care Instruction and offer a variety of dental aids such as manual and electric toothbrushes, floss, fluoridated products and products for sensitive teeth.
Your Hygienist may also suggest and provide Nutritional Counseling to help you learn how eating a healthy diet may boost your immune system, so you will be less vulnerable to oral disease and your body will have the nutrients needed to maintain strong teeth and healthy gums.
Preventive prophylaxis, commonly known as cleanings, remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Tartar can be removed effectively only with a professional cleaning. It is important to remove plaque and tartar, as they are the main reason for tooth decay and gum disease.
During your preventive visit, you will also receive an examination by one of our Doctors. Regular examinations are an important part of your preventive care, as they will reveal oral health problems such as periodontal disease, decay, and problems with your existing restorations. Recognizing your oral health risks and developing a preventive protocol will help to ensure a healthy smile, and may help to maintain your overall health.
