Preventive Dentistry

Preventive Dentistry deals with the prevention of dental disease. Each patient receives a customized prevention plan based on a thorough evaluation of his or her mouth at the time of the initial oral examination. This is a dynamic plan that is revised during subsequent periodic examinations.

Our most common Preventive Procedures are:

Individualized oral hygiene instruction - to help the patient learn how to take care of his or her own mouth.

Fluoride treatments - to strengthen tooth enamel and help prevent decay.

Sealants - to protect cavity prone areas in childrens teeth.

Athletic Mouthguards - to help prevent sports injuries to the teeth.
