Preventive Dental Services
When it comes to dental care, preventive services are a worthwhile investment. Visits for simple procedures like teeth cleaning and regular checkups not only help support your oral health, but also ensure we find and treat any issues early. Fast detection and treatment in the dental field means far more comfort and less expense for you. Let us recommend a preventive service schedule for you and your family to make sure you are on track for maintaining excellent oral health.
Cleanings remove any plaque buildup and tartar from teeth and keep them clean and healthy. Depending on the state of your dental health, you may get just a regular cleaning, or may require more in-depth services. Scaling and root planning is a form of deep cleaning we recommend for some patients with excess buildup. During an exam, we also take a look at your gums, tongue, and the rest of your mouth to make sure everything looks healthy.
Restorative Dental Services
Restorative services involve treatments like fillings, root canals, crowns, and more. Basically, this term is used for any procedure that restores your tooth or teeth back to a healthier state. If we find an issue that needs to be addressed, we’ll first discuss it with you, and then recommend a treatment approach. We’ll also discuss the long-term impact of any work we suggest.
At our practice, we believe patients should be informed every step of the way in their own treatment. We make sure to communicate all the details so you can make informed decisions about your care.
