Keep Your Oral Health in Tip-Top Shape!

As you eat and go about your day, bacteria can accumulate at a compounding rate. What’s more, over time this bacterium colonizes into a sticky film on teeth called plaque. And, if left undisturbed, plaque can calcify to tartar, causing greater complications like periodontal disease and decay. The only way to remove tartar buildup is with visits to the dental office every six months for routine checkups and cleanings.

Dr. Jeffrey Dornbush and his team of hygienists are experts in dental care and comprehensive about our approach to making your smile as beautiful and healthy as it can be. Our cleanings are gentle and customized to make sure you remain comfortable throughout your visit.

Complete, thorough exams ensure we capture a detailed overview of your smile’s health and functional capabilities. As a dental care provider, it is essential that teeth are free of decay, are properly aligned, and that they look as beautiful as possible. Our examinations cover everything from checking for the development of periodontal disease to screening for oral cancer. We’re confident we can diagnose the right issues and provide suggestions for the appropriate course of action to improve your oral health.

Preventive Treatment

As with all health care issues, the best defense is prevention. Your smile can be susceptible to bacteria buildup and decay, so to protect your smile, and even improve on its structure, preventive measures like sealants and fluoride treatment are great ways to get out ahead of any problems.

Sealants protect teeth that have deep fissures and prevent food debris and bacteria from collecting and accumulating in the hard to reach areas. Since these teeth are much more susceptible to caries developing deep within the crevice of the tooth, sealants are a good option to protect against decay.

Fluoride is the active component in remineralization and encourages teeth to develop a strong, protective outer enamel. Without fluoride, teeth can become brittle and susceptible to damage or chipping. To keep your teeth strong, fluoride gels can be applied to encourage the natural remineralization process and strengthen protective tissues.
