Avoid cavities, infections and bad breath with your regular dental exam and cleaning! The American Dental Association recommends that a routine dental examination and cleaning are performed every 6 months. Our office performs a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums and tissues, including an oral cancer screening, and we utilize low radiation digital x-rays to customize a personalized treatment plan. A cleaning is performed with an ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque and calculus from the teeth. Plaque and calculus on the teeth and below the gums can cause several dental problems including tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, bad breath, and potentially tooth loss. Routine dental cleanings can eliminate plaque and calculus build-up and remove harmful bacteria.
Our office aims to provide quality dental care for the entire family and to create a foundation of optimal oral health. We provide preventative and restorative treatments for all ages including: dental examinations, cleanings, fluoride treatments and sealants.
Children are at risk for gum disease, cavities and infection so it is crucial that they receive preventative care early on.
Dental sealants are clear coatings applied to the surfaces of a child’s molars to prevent the development of tooth decay. They work by preventing food and plaque from resting in the grooves and crevices of molars – an area especially susceptible to cavities. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, nearly 1 in 3 U.S. children ages 6 to 12 currently have sealants on their teeth.
