Routine Cleanings & Preventive Care

Regular cleanings and preventative care are the key to your optimum oral health. During your regular checkups, your hygienist will:

  • Check for any problems that you may not be able to see or feel
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Examine your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
  • Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
  • Complete a thorough cleaning, rinse, and polish

Regular visits to your dentist every six months allows you to focus on proper home care and overall oral health. These regular visits give you a chance to ask your dentist questions you may have and to learn about new treatment that can keep your teeth at optimum health. We also provide dental sealants to help protect teeth against decay, and fluoride treatments for healthier and stronger tooth enamel.

Selecting the Right Toothbrush and Toothpaste
It’s important to choose the right products to help you maintain optimal oral health. Keep in mind that when you’re looking for a new toothpaste or toothbrush be sure to choose one that has been approved by the American Dental Association (ADA). We can also help by recommending certain dental products for use at home including toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash and dental floss.
