Routine Exams and Cleaning
Professional cleanings and routine exams can help detect early signs of tooth decay which can prevent future problems. Cleanings remove the plaque and tartar that causes decay, bad breath and periodontal disease and help maintain healthy gum tissues.
Radiographs taken at routine exams help us in diagnosing cavities in between your teeth, which cannot always be detected visually.
Panoramic x-rays gives us a view of the entire mouth, which helps us to see developing teeth, bone abnormalities, infection, cysts and root problems; as well as any missing teeth.
Fluoride treatment helps to strengthen the tooth enamel and protects the teeth from bacteria and acids in the mouth. Educating our patients in proper brushing, flossing and home care is all part of helping you maintain that healthy, happy smile.
Dental Sealants are used to help protect the surface of your teeth where tooth decay can start early in children, these hard to clean areas are pits and small grooves in the teeth. Sealants are a material that flows into these areas and coats the surface causing a barrier to help prevent decay. It is a simple procedure, no drilling and filling or freezing.
