What is Preventive Dentistry?

Preventive dentistry is a proactive approach to maintaining optimal oral health and preventing dental issues before they arise. By focusing on regular check-ups, diligent oral hygiene practices, and early intervention, preventive dentistry aims to keep your teeth and gums healthy, reducing the need for extensive dental treatments in the future. It's all about preserving your beautiful smile for years to come.

How Can We Help You Smile?

Preventive Dentistry Services We Offer

1

Diagnostics & Exams

Comprehensive exams are the foundation of preventive dental care. Through thorough examinations, including digital x-rays and other advanced diagnostic tools, we identify any existing or potential dental issues. Early detection allows us to develop personalized treatment plans and address problems before they worsen.

2

Cleaning & Hygiene

Professional dental cleanings and hygiene services are vital for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Our skilled hygienists perform thorough cleanings, removing plaque, tartar, and stains that regular brushing and flossing may miss. We also provide guidance on proper oral hygiene techniques to ensure you can maintain a clean and healthy smile at home.

3

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatments play a crucial role in strengthening your teeth and preventing tooth decay. We offer fluoride applications to help remineralize weakened enamel and make your teeth more resistant to acid attacks. This simple yet effective treatment provides an extra layer of protection for your dental health.

4

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth (molars and premolars). By sealing the deep grooves and fissures, we create a barrier against bacteria and food particles, reducing the risk of cavities in these vulnerable areas.

5

Emergencies

Dental emergencies can happen unexpectedly, causing pain and discomfort. At Smile Snob, we are here for you during those urgent moments. Our experienced team promptly handles dental emergencies, providing relief and effective treatment options to address the issue and restore your oral health.

6

Periodontal Care

Healthy gums are the foundation of a healthy smile. We offer comprehensive periodontal care, including gum disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Our skilled periodontists are dedicated to preserving the health of your gums, ensuring a strong foundation for your teeth and overall oral well-being.

7

Soft-Tissue Laser Therapy

Soft-tissue laser therapy is a minimally invasive and highly precise technique used for various dental procedures. It is an effective tool for gum contouring, treating periodontal disease, removing oral lesions, and performing biopsies. With soft-tissue laser therapy, we can provide efficient treatment, faster healing times, and increased patient comfort.

8

Sedation Options

We understand that dental anxiety can be a barrier to receiving necessary dental care. To ensure your comfort and relaxation during procedures, we offer sedation options, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation. Our compassionate team will discuss the available options and create a tailored sedation plan that suits your needs.

9

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are an essential part of preventive dentistry. Our experienced dentists perform thorough screenings, checking for any signs or symptoms of oral cancer. Early detection significantly improves the chances of successful treatment, making regular screenings a vital component of your overall health.

10

Night Guards & Sports Guards

Protecting your teeth during sleep or physical activities is crucial to prevent dental injuries. We provide custom-made night guards for patients who suffer from teeth grinding (bruxism), as well as sports guards for athletes of all ages. These protective appliances ensure your teeth are shielded from potential damage, preserving your smile's integrity.
