Preventive Measures
Preventive dentistry is the first component in a total treatment plan.

Our preventive care plan begins with a review of your medical history, and other important components, such as:

Regular Check-ups every 3, 4, 6 months
Flouride treatments and sealants Evaluation of existing oral conditions Early intervention to reduce the indidence of dental and oral diseases.

Dentistry Doctors and hygienists help patients understand exactly what their oral health issues are, and what might happen if suggested treatment plans are not followed. Children are taught proper brushing and flossing techniques by our pediatric staff as the very first steps in a lifetime of dental health. We also encourage patients who smoke to quit, providing advice and support as they work to give up this difficult habit.

As part of a preventive plan, we also perform:

  • Complete tooth and gum examination
  • Interpretation of dental x-rays
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Blood pressure screening
  • Evaluation of jaw joint problems

And, should your care involve more than preventive measures, 
our dental specialists are here to provide you the optimum in patient care you need.
