The best way to avoid invasive and costly dental procedures is to take great care of the teeth you have and our preventive services can help you do just that.

Routine Cleanings

A dental cleaning is the process of removing plaque, irritating deposits (known as calculus/tartar), and stains from your teeth. Your cleaning is performed by one of our experienced dental hygienists. To prevent excessive plaque buildup, your cleanings should be performed regularly. Plaque that is left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay.

Scaling & Root Planing

If you develop a severe gum disease called periodontitis, you may need a deep cleaning, referred to in dentistry as scaling and root planing. This procedure cleans below the gumline to chip off tartar that has hardened to the surfaces of your teeth. This preventive treatment helps you protect your smile and prevent the loss of teeth, gums, and bone.


Children, teenagers, adults or anyone who is at high-risk of developing cavities can benefit from sealants. Dental sealants create a barrier on the grooves of molars-where it’s often difficult to clean and easy for bacteria to develop. Untreated tooth decay can lead to more serious oral health problems including gum disease and tooth loss.
