Preventive Care Treatments

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatments are an excellent way to restore your oral health and strengthen your teeth. This treatment can usually be done after a routine checkup. Your hygenist will apply a special fluoride-rich compound to your teeth, painting it onto the surface of each tooth. The fluoride in this compound helps remineralize and strengthen your teeth, keeping them healthy and even reversing the initial stages of tooth decay.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants use a special type of liquid resin. Your hygenist will apply this resin directly to your teeth, then use ultraviolet light to harden it. This creates a strong, transparent barrier that protects your teeth from decay. Food particles, bacteria, and acid cannot contact the tooth structure directly, so this prevents further damage and decay. Sealants are most often applied in the rear teeth. These teeth are usually more susceptible to decay because they have deep pits and grooves that can trap particles.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer is relatively rare, but can be extremely serious if it’s not caught early by a dentist. Dr. Eitemiller or Dr. Moody will conduct an oral cancer screening as part of every six-month appointment at our office. They will look for abnormal tissue patches, discoloration, and other signs of oral cancer.
