Dental Cleanings & Exams
Two of the most fundamental yet significant preventive procedures we offer at our office are dental cleanings and exams. Every time you come in for a checkup at our dental office, we’ll give you a thorough teeth cleaning and examination to keep your smile healthy. Our dental experts will: During your examination and teeth cleaning:
- Clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
- Floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile
- Examine your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases
To further assess your smile and make sure you get the dental care you require, we use dental X-rays. In order to maintain good oral health, prevent cavities and gum disease, and ensure that any harmful problems are treated as soon as possible, regular dental cleanings and exams are necessary.

Our dentist may suggest a sealant as a preventive dental procedure to guard against tooth decay. It is painted onto the chewing surface of the tooth and is made of clear or tooth-colored resin. The sealant stops tooth decay and cavities by keeping out the bacteria and food particles that cause them. The natural pits and grooves of the tooth surface are covered by the dental sealant, creating a smooth surface that also makes it simpler to properly brush your teeth.
Our dentist regularly suggests sealants for permanent molars as soon as they erupt, which is typically between the ages of 6 and 12 years. They are most frequently advised for children. For adult patients with teeth that are prone to decay, for teeth that have not had a restoration, or for teeth that have already experienced decay, we might also suggest dental sealants. Dental sealants can be applied in just one quick, comfortable visit to our office. Sealants can be an effective tool for halting decay and maintaining the health of your smile.
Water and a number of foods naturally contain the mineral fluoride. We may suggest fluoride therapy to further strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities even though you already get a certain amount of fluoride from your diet and from using fluoride-containing toothpaste.
Your teeth get stronger and are shielded against tooth decay thanks to fluoride. Bacteria, sugars, and acids continuously assault and demineralize the enamel layer of your teeth as you eat and drink throughout the day. Fluoride prevents tooth decay and cavities by remineralizing the tooth enamel. Fluoride is crucial for children as their teeth erupt because it can strengthen teeth as they grow to ensure that they are sturdy and healthy.
During your routine dental examination, our dentist will frequently prescribe professional fluoride treatment. If your teeth are prone to decay or if you aren’t getting enough fluoride from other sources, we may also offer additional treatment. Professional fluoride is offered as a foam, gel, or varnish. One method our dentist uses to help you maintain the health of your smile for a lifetime is fluoride therapy. We invite you to get in touch with us right away if you’d want additional details on fluoride’s advantages and preventative dentistry. We can’t wait to take care of your smile!
Preventive care aims to safeguard your smile from harm from dental disorders such gum disease, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. Before these conditions result in damage that needs to be fixed, preventive dentistry strives to stop them. To assist you in maintaining the healthiest possible condition of your smile, we provide a variety of preventative dental procedures. Visits to our clinic periodically ensure that we catch any early symptoms of damage and treat them before they worsen and become uncomfortable. These procedures include dental sealants and cleanings.
You can take a number of actions to stop tooth decay and cavities. In order to reduce your risk of getting cavities, our dentist advises that you abide by the following recommendations:
- Brush and floss your teeth every day. You should brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste.
- Maintain a balanced, healthy diet with a limited amount of very sugary or acidic foods.
- Visit our office at least twice a year for a routine tooth cleaning and dental exam.
- Ask your dentist about dental sealants and fluoride treatment to see if they are right for your smile.

The removal of a tooth is called a tooth extraction. While we try to prevent the necessity for tooth extraction whenever feasible, there are several problems that can make it the best option for restoring the health and function of your smile. If you require one of our great tooth replacement procedures to bring back the health, beauty, and functionality of your smile, we would be pleased to offer it to you.
Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:
- Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
- Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
For your dental procedure to be as painless and comfortable as possible, our dentist takes considerable care and competence when extracting a tooth. Detailed post-treatment care instructions will also be given to you so you can properly care for your smile as it heals.
