Preventive Care

Regular preventive dental care is an important part of maintaining your oral health—and keeping you feeling your best overall. We will clean your teeth, look for any signs of problems, and educate you about the best way to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Your preventive dental service visit also includes a radiographic survey (bitewing x-rays) to look for cavities between your teeth, and a panoramic survey to assess the health of the supporting structures in your jaws and face. Together we will review all aspects of your current dental health, and chart a course to help you achieve the optimal results you are looking for. Some of the preventive services we offer:

 • Cleanings

 • Dental Sealants

 • Regular Checkups

 • Patient Education

 • Nightguards (occlusal splints)

 • Mouthguards

 • Bitewing X-rays

 • Panoramic X-ray
