When most people think of preventive dentistry, they picture routine exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, x-rays, periodontal and oral cancer screenings. At our office we offer all the standard preventive procedures and so much more.
Our doctors have received advanced dental training and truly understand the workings of the mouth, jaw joint and muscles and how they function together. With this understanding they are able to detect and treat problems others may miss. Our routine exams include checking our patient’s bite (the way the teeth fit together), looking for any signs of clenching, grinding, broken, cracked or chipped teeth. We also check the jaw joint for any tenderness or muscle tension.
It is our goal to detect and solve issues before they lead to problems.
