How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?

The American Dental Association recommends regular check-ups, including dental cleanings and examinations, to be performed every 6 months. Preventative care is an essential part of keeping your smile healthy and bright.

Preventative Services

Our services are designed to eliminate plaque build-up, remove harmful bacteria, prevent teeth grinding, and more to prevent a lifetime of oral health. We proudly offer the following preventative dental care services:

  • Dental Cleaning & Examination: We provide routine check-ups and cleanings to prevent harmful infections and bacteria from forming. This includes a complete examination of your oral health and condition of your mouth to determine the need for tooth restorations or replacements.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: We perform examinations to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth to identify problems early, where there is a greater chance for cure.
  • Mouth & Night Guards: Mouth and night guards can help in the prevention of teeth grinding as well as build stronger eating habits as well as reduce jaw pain.
  • Dental Sealants: Dental sealants form a layer on the surface of your teeth, protecting your smile from damage and decay.

Taking Care of Oral Health at Home

Don’t take a healthy mouth for granted. Looking after your dental health can decrease your chances of requiring emergency treatment. We understand how a hectic life can get in the way of preventative dental care, and the best way to avoid complications is to stay current with your regimen at home. Investing the extra time into your teeth and gums can be extremely valuable. Plus, many of the treatments we provide in-office are designed to prevent dental emergencies from happening in the first place, so maintaining excellent hygiene is the first step you should take in preventative measures.
