Preventative Dentistry

stock-15Prevention is safer, simpler, and more affordable than extensive treatment. Preventative dental care is pivotal to your overall health because it is the best way to protect you from major dental complications.

We provide top-notch preventative care at Turnagain Dental to give our patients the long-term security that they need. Preventative care allows our patients to save money, avoid pain, and skip the anxiety associated with surgery or other significant dental treatments.

What can YOU prevent with great preventative dentistry?

  • Tooth loss caused by gum disease
  • Jawbone deterioration and an aged facial appearance
  • Bad breath from food and bacteria trapped in the mouth
  • Expensive and intrusive dental care down the line
  • A crooked and unattractive smile
  • A dysfunctional and painful bite
  • Severe toothache due to decay or infection
  • Heart disease, diabetes, and other health problems linked with oral hygiene

Healthy Gums

stock-20Our preventative care program includes:

Diagnostic Exams and Cleanings | Even if you have great oral hygiene habits, bacteria can find a way to damage your smile. Dr. David Green will look for any indications of issues so that he can provide treatment before the problem grows. Dental professionals will use advanced tools to remove the most stubborn bacteria from your gums and teeth to ensure optimal oral health.

Oral Hygiene Education | Our dental professionals know the most effective ways to help you and your families understand the importance of at-home care. We can answer any questions you may have about proper diet and nutrition or brushing and flossing techniques and materials.

Fluoride and Sealants | Fluoride is a natural mineral that promotes strong, healthy, and functional teeth. We provide a fortifying fluoride treatment that safeguards patients from tooth decay. We may also place sealants into the molars. This thin layer of plastic resin smooths out the grooves and crevices of the teeth, and eliminates hiding places for smile-threatening bacteria.

Athletic Mouthguards | Severe dental accidents occur on the field or the court all of the time, so we place a special emphasis on sports dentistry. Our custom-made athletic mouthguards will protect the mouth and face from permanent damage during any kind of athletic activity.

Preventative dentistry is far more comfortable than involved treatments. We would love to hear from you at Turnagain Dental. Give us a call to schedule your preventative appointment today!
