…looking for a dentist you can trust to stay in-tune with your needs?
Then you came to the right place! We are a family-friendly dental practice that has all the tools, training, and technology to keep your mouth clean and your smile looking its best, all through life. If you do your part at home and give us the opportunity to do what we do on a regular basis, you should be able to stay on the good road indefinitely.
Visit The Dentist Every Six Months
By coming in for a professional teeth cleaning and thorough dental exam, you will go along way towards keeping bad things at bay. This kind of preventive appointment allows us to keep an eye on your oral health, while checking for any irregularities, tooth decay, gum disease, and other health concerns that may be emerging, including cancer.
When we know just what’s happening in your mouth at any given time, we can address small problems before they develop into big (and expensive) dental woes. Isn’t that what you would want for yourself and your family?
We thought so!
The good news is that our preventive care is customized to you as an individual. You’ll never be just another name on a chart to us.
Check Out Our Checkups
We’ll make it easy for you to get the care you need, even if you have been away from the dentist’s chair longer than usual.
When you are in our midst, we will examine your mouth for any noticeable changes in your teeth, gums, or oral cavity. Our dental hygienists will rigorously clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar buildup. Much of it can be removed only by an oral health professional.
Once our dental hygienists have cleaned your teeth, we will apply polish to the surface of your teeth. The polish makes it more difficult for plaque and harmful bacteria to stick to your teeth. The best part is that this also makes your mouth feel nice and fresh!
Other Preventive Features
Beyond teeth cleanings and dental exams, we also offer more aggressive preventative treatments like dental sealants and fluoride varnish (for kids). The sealants protect the biting surface of your teeth, especially teeth with tiny grooves and crevasses, while the varnish helps prevent the development of cavities. A little extra protection goes a long way!
Plus, we also offer thorough oral cancer screenings for our adult patients. Since oral cancer kills more than 8,000 people every year, it might be something you’d like to stay on top of. The disease is actually very treatable if caught and addressed in the early stages. Our oral cancer screenings take about two or three minutes, but the procedure could possibly save your life. Time well spent, right?
When you are here for an oral cancer screening, we can check for any unusual sights in your mouth. It makes sense that anyone using tobacco and alcohol are going to be at a higher risk for oral cancer, but about a quarter of the people diagnosed with oral cancer each year have no known risks-factors. So, better to be safe than sorry!
