The best way to ensure your oral health and prevent the need for future dental treatment is to maintain your oral hygiene at home along with regular dental cleanings and exams. This includes brushing twice a day and flossing daily. We are happy to teach you proper brushing and flossing technique and answer any questions you might have about keeping your teeth clean.

For children we will recommend fluoride treatment at their 6 month cleaning and exam appointments. We will apply a thin layer of fluoride to their teeth that is safe if ingested. We will also recommend sealants on permanent molar teeth. Sealants are applied to fill in the grooves on teeth where bacteria and cavities would otherwise easily invade.

For adults, we will examine tooth wear and any areas where teeth are crooked that may make it more difficult to clean. Often times, dental conditions can be prevented just by properly aligning the teeth.
