Our office emphasizes the importance of Preventive & Diagnostic Services to ensure optimal oral health and prevent dental issues before they start. Comprehensive oral evaluations, recommended biannually, serve as a cornerstone for detecting dental problems early on. Regular dental cleanings are crucial for maintaining healthy gums and preventing cavities, involving the careful removal of plaque and tartar. Advancements in digital radiography have significantly reduced radiation exposure while providing immediate, high-quality images for accurate diagnosis. Moreover, our team provides detailed oral hygiene instructions during check-ups to enhance your daily care routine, alongside the application of dental sealants to shield teeth from decay. These comprehensive services are designed to maintain your child’s oral health and prevent future complications, ensuring a healthy smile for years to come.

Comprehensive Oral Evaluation

An oral evaluation is recommended every six (6) months to prevent cavities and other dental problems. During an oral evaluation, a thorough examination of the mouth, head, and neck is performed to detect abnormalities.

Dental Cleanings (Prophylaxis)

Regular cleanings help keep gums healthy and teeth cavity-free. A dental cleaning includes removal of tartar and plaque and polishing of the teeth to remove stains and prevent further buildup of plaque.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a natural substance that helps strengthen teeth and prevent decay. Fluoride treatments are administered at this office as an important component of pediatric dental treatment. The fluoride is applied to the teeth in a gel, foam, or varnish form.

Digital Radiographs

Dental X-rays are a valuable diagnostic tool used to identify decay, extra teeth, bone defects, tumors, cysts and check the progress of previous procedures. Advances in technology now allow for digital X-rays, which reduce radiation exposure more than 50 percent, and produce instant, high-quality images that can be viewed immediately by the dentist and the patient.

Oral Hygiene Instructions

During a regular check-up, oral hygiene instructions are given to both patient and parent. Good home care can reduce the risk of plaque and tartar build-up which can lead to cavities. Instructions include proper techniques for brushing, flossing, and using mouth rinses.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are made of a safe resin material which is applied to the surfaces of teeth (commonly permanent molars) to prevent cavities. The sealant material fills in the crevices of a tooth and “seals” off the tooth from cavity-causing agents like food and plaque. The teeth are prepared for the sealant application and the sealant is painted directly onto the chewing surface of each tooth and then hardens. Sealants are applied in one visit.
