Preventative Services

Cleanings — Our hygienist will gently remove plaque biofilm and calcified tartar buildup that has accumulated since your last cleaning. We’ll also share tips for accessing hard-to-clean areas for easier everyday maintenance. In the end, we’ll gently polish away any superficial stains to leave a smoother, brighter smile for you to take home.

Digital X-rays — Low radiation images help us screen for issues like cavities and bone loss, which can’t be seen during an exam.

Oral Cancer Screenings — Checking for irregular and precancerous tissues each year could save your life. Oral cancer is often difficult to diagnose on your own until it’s reached an aggressive stage of the disease.

Routine Visits


Routine visits are especially important to effectively diagnose gum disease and begin treatment.

Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss. By intercepting the infection earlier, we can avoid excessive bone deterioration. Active periodontitis is closely linked with major health concerns like diabetes and heart disease, among others.

If you have active periodontal disease, we’ll recommend a different type of therapeutic cleaning to stabilize the infection and halt bone loss. Let us know if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Swollen gum tissues
  • Tooth mobility
  • Pain when eating
  • Bad breath
  • Heavy amounts of tartar buildup
  • Open space between teeth
