Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry starts at home.

Prevention starts with wearing a seat belt – after all who wants to restore a whole smile from an accident?

The next best thing you can do for yourself is not to smoke cigarettes.  Cigarettes and good dental health are not compatible. After these two biggies, prevention is a combination of daily habits of how you take care of your teeth and what we do to support you.

Children should be seen for growth and development examinations every 6 months.  This way we help to insure they grow up to have beautiful smiles.

Every adult six month cleaning visits includes an oral cancer exam, an appropriate x-ray examination to detect dental disease or cavities and periodontal  or gum disease.
