Preventive Dentistry

Dentist in West Branch

With regular check-ups and cleanings, we can ensure healthy and happy smiles. It is recommended for all patients to schedule a routine six-month check-up exam. Our dentist will screen your mouth for tooth decay and gum disease. Regular professional dental cleanings are essential for a healthy mouth. During your dental cleaning, we will gently remove any buildup of plaque or tartar.

Our dentist may also recommend dental sealants in some cases, particularly for children’s preventive care. Sealants protect against tooth decay and cavities on your child’s molars. Molars are the most susceptible to cavities and receive the least benefit from topical fluoride. Sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and are highly effective in preventing tooth decay. Fluoride may be applied to the teeth as well. Topical fluoride is used to strengthen enamel and make teeth more resistant to tooth decay.

Without proper dental care, both children and adults are susceptible to oral decay. Healthy smiles should not stop at our dental office. Our team will educate you and your child on making good food choices and how to properly brush and floss at home.

Our expert dentist and caring team have the experience and qualifications to care for your teeth, gums, and mouth for optimal oral health.
