Preventive Dentistry

The goal of preventive dentistry is to help you avoid oral health issues, such as gum disease and tooth decay. With the help of our dentist, you can maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime.

We provide teeth cleanings, dental exams, and sealants in our office. But our dentist can also advise you on the best way to care for your smile at home between appointments.

Teeth Cleanings

In general, we recommend that our patients get their teeth cleanings at least every 6 months. This gives us the opportunity to remove plaque and tartar. Our dentist will also be able to detect any issues with your oral health before they're able to worsen.


Dental Exams

You can save yourself a lot of grief in the long run by making sure you see our dentist at least every 6 months. Although, we may recommend more frequent visits if you have a chronic oral health condition that requires close monitoring.


Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a clear plastic coating that our dentist applies to the chewing surfaces of back teeth. We may recommend sealants as a preventive measure against cavities, especially for our younger patients.
