Oral bacteria can cause damage to your gums or even to the root of your teeth. Deep cleaning attacks deep pockets of bacteria beneath the gums and can prevent progressive root or bone damage.

These thorough check-ups look at your medical and dental history, check the alignment of your teeth, study your gums, and even check for signs of oral cancer. You might also have x-rays and photos taken. Seeing the entire picture helps our professionals give you the finest in preventive dentistry treatment.
The mineral fluoride is vital to the health and strength of your tooth enamel. Without enough, tooth decay or cavities may occur. An application of fluoride through a gel or foam will remineralize your enamel to help keep the outer layer of your teeth their strongest.
A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating over the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. An easy application will keep bacteria and plaque out of the ridges of molars, helping prevent tooth decay in children and adults.
