cleanings & prevention

Professional prevention is any prevention procedure that needs to be performed by your dentist or the professional dental hygienist; it goes hand in hand with home care Prevention to maintain a healthy beautiful smile. Our Registered Dental Hygienists provide many outstanding services for the treatment of children and adults. Effective prevention can help you avoid costly treatments in the future to remove decay, restore teeth or treat gum disease. We provide full range of hygiene services including:

Dental Exams & Cleanings

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed on your initial dental visit. Professional dental cleanings are performed by our Registered Dental Hygienists on regular check-up exams.

Dental X-Rays

Dental x-rays are essential and preventative diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities to complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. We will evaluate for periodontal disease and recommend the appropriate treatment.

Night Guards and Sports Guards

There are two ways where a dental mouth guard can be properly used. One is to prevent injury to the teeth from participation in sporting events. The other is to prevent grinding of the teeth during sleep or even during the day which can lead to TMJ disorder. While there are mouth guards you can purchase in sporting goods stores or even at your local pharmacy, these may not provide the protection you need. To get a dental mouth guard, the first thing you’ll need to do is schedule a consultation with your dentist. He or she will examine your mouth and give you an evaluation of your condition.
