Preventive Dentistry

Our Preventive Care Services combine advanced hygiene techniques and homecare counseling to achieve optimal oral health. In addition to traditional scaling and prophylaxis (dental cleaning), we use the Cavitron to clean the teeth and gums. A Cavitron is a dental tool that utilizes high frequency ultrasonic waves to vibrate plaque, calculus, and debris off the teeth.

Comprehensive examinations and Oral Hygiene Instruction (brushing and flossing techniques) help our patients to maintain proper homecare.

Oral cancer screenings are also an integral part of the oral examination. Oral Cancer is on the rise with the increased incidence of these types of cancers being linked to HPV (Human PapillomaVirus) and being diagnosed in younger populations. We want our patients to know that oral cancer is not just linked with excessive alcohol and tobacco exposure.
