In our years of experience, we’ve learned that the most effective treatment against oral health problems is to prevent them from happening in the first place. Brushing and flossing regularly is a fantastic habit to have, but only proper and routine dental examinations will provide the most comprehensive preventive care.

Keep your natural smile.

Routine Dental Exams & Cleanings

We may find that you’re missing certain spots when you brush, and some problems can sneak up on you without causing any pain. Plaque is a tough and resilient force to be reckoned with, and regardless of your brushing habits, it can sometimes find a way to infiltrate. Our routine preventive exams and cleanings will ensure a lifetime of positive oral health.

Fluoride and Sealants

Fluoride is a natural mineral that, when applied to our teeth, promotes a strong resilience against cavities, as well as strengthens enamel. Our fluoride treatment consists of a concentrated gel that is a highly effective preventive measure against tooth decay and cavities.

Dental sealants are a thin layer of plastic resin that is applied to the molars and acts as a barrier to prevent cavities. It fills in all the grooves and fissures that the bristles of our toothbrush have difficulty reaching. As long as the sealants remain intact, your teeth will be protected from decay.

Headache Prevention

Headache Prevention

The muscles in your jaw are extremely complex and being put to constant use throughout the day, with talking, eating, and even swallowing. Grinding and clenching your teeth at night, having poorly aligned teeth, or even missing a tooth could cause the muscles in your jaw to become strained, resulting in chronic headaches.

If you suspect your headaches might be caused by your bite, come and see us! We will examine your mouth, teeth, and jaw joints to determine if your bite is causing you pain. If we find this to be true, we will correct your bite so that the muscles in your jaw can function without unnecessary strain or tension.

You don't have to live with headaches!
