Preventive dental treatments are essential for patients to protect their teeth from oral diseases. It helps to keep the teeth healthy and also provides extra protection to the teeth. 

Professional Teeth Cleaning

A professional teeth cleaning will remove plaque and tartar buildup, both above and below the gum line. This is an essential part of preventative dental care and will help you maintain good oral health.

Sometimes patients need a deep dental cleaning. This cleaning is more involved than regular cleaning. It’s ideal for those patients that suffer from gum disease or have poor oral health habits.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are applied to the back teeth to protect them from decay. The sealant itself is a thin plastic coating that is applied over the chewing surface of teeth. Dental sealants are most commonly used for children because they are still learning how to brush and floss their teeth properly.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is an element that can reduce or even reverse tooth decay. It can also help to prevent cavities. Fluoride treatments at the dentist’s office are quick, painless, and typically only take a few minutes. A topical gel or foam fluoride treatment is applied to the teeth. Fluoride treatments are safe for children, teens, and adults.

Dental Exams

Dental exams are professional dental checkups that are designed to check the health of the teeth. During the exams, the teeth and mouth are examined for signs of decay, damage, or other dental issues. The dentist uses a small concave mirror to obtain a better view of the mouth. They also suggest X-rays for patients, which help to provide a detailed view of the mouth. 


Mouthguards are designed to protect the teeth from damage during contact sports. Mouthguards can also lessen the effects of bruxism or the grinding and clenching of the teeth. Mouthguards can also be used as a preventive measure against teeth grinding and jaw clenching.
