Cleanings & Checkups
A regular dental check-up includes a thorough exam of your teeth and gums, as well as a professional cleaning. Our team will examine your smile and inform you of any dental concerns. A professional cleaning helps remove plaque and tartar buildup to protect your teeth and gums and reveal a brighter smile. Consistent cleanings can help you avoid decay and cavities. When needed, we will recommend x-rays to take a closer look at your smile. You will also have the opportunity to get your questions answered and discuss any desired treatment. Your dentist can help you build a plan to work towards any goals that you may have for improving your smile.
At a regular office visit, a fluoride treatment can be given for strengthening your smile. Fluoride helps build and strengthen your teeth enamel and is recommended when needed. Enamel is an important part of the tooth as it protects the sensitive internal structures from harm. Fluoride treatments are quick and painless, giving your smile the boost that it needs.
Dental sealants are recommended for children, teens and adults. Applied to your back molars, dental sealants protect deep crevices in the teeth as well as hard-to-reach areas of your smile. Dental sealants are a clear plastic coating. Once applied, dental sealants are made to last for several years and can be reapplied when needed.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screenings help detect any signs of oral cancer. By screening for oral cancer, our team can help protect your oral and overall health. Oral cancer screenings can be performed during a regular dental check-up and if we notice anything concerning, a biopsy can be performed and we will work to diagnose the problem right away.
