Dental Preventive Treatments
While fillings, root canals, crowns and other dental procedures are common practice, we would much prefer if you did not have to have them performed. This is why we advocate proper dental health and offer a range of dental preventative treatments. In fact, you are certainly familiar with the most common treatment: a simple dental cleaning. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
The first stage of preventative treatments is basic education. We help educate children and adults alike in dental care. This includes how to brush and floss properly, what foods are harmful to teeth and what symptoms to watch out for. If you have any questions about dental health and hygiene, feel free to ask.
The second stage of preventative treatment is the cleaning. We advocate regular dental cleaning, because often tartar and calculus build up in places your brush and floss cannot easily reach. Our specialized tools and training allow us to remove the harmful buildup quickly and easily. We also offer fluoride treatments and sealants to help ward off tooth decay, especially for children.
Digital x-rays and regular inspections are an important part of preventative dentistry. They allow us to spot problems early, often before you can feel symptoms such as sensitivity or pain that indicate a cavity. They also allow us to spot instances of oral cancer early, assisting greatly in treatment.
