Preventative Dentistry

Advanced Technology

Digital X-rays provide us a view of your teeth and supporting structures. Digital x-rays use significantly less radiation than traditional films and are much quicker as there is no need to develop them.

Panoramic X-rays show a view of the teeth, jaws, nasal area, sinuses and
temporomandibular joints (TMJ). This gives us a comprehensive view of your entire mouth which aids in diagnosing such things as bone abnormalities and fractures, cysts, impacted teeth, and infections and tumors.

Intra-oral photos allows us to take close-up photos of the teeth and gums, in order to demonstrate findings to our patients and better educate them on their dental health.

Comprehensive  Exams done every 6 months, or at shorter intervals depending on your individual needs. We will review any changes to your medical history and address the overall state of your oral health.

Teeth Scaling and Root Planing Dental scaling occurs with manual hand instruments, ultrasonic instruments or both. The instruments remove tartar (calculus) and plaque from the tooth surface and underneath the gum line, which contribute to gum disease and inflammation.

Fluoride Treatment Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that helps to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay. Used in the form of a paste or rinse, fluoride is helpful tool in preventing and treating teeth sensitivity as well as reversing the effects of early tooth decay.

Sealants Plastic coatings usually placed on the chewing surface of the permanent back teeth to help protect them from decay. Deep grooves in our teeth cannot always be adequately accessed by toothbrushes allowing food and plaque to accumulate, which can lead to cavities. Dental sealants fill in these deep grooves, helping to prevent tooth decay.
