We Keep Your Smile Healthy & Beautiful

A proper dental checkup is about much more than polishing your teeth. It's about making sure your entire mouth is healthy. We look for chronic gum inflammation, airway obstructions, tooth crowding, signs of oral cancer, or other mouth abnormalities. We know early detection is the key to faster, more successful treatment, as well as prevention of more severe oral problems later.

We offer services that are fast, efficient, and affordable. We know your time is precious, but so is your oral health. That's why we work quickly to get you back to your day, but we take enough time to give you a thorough examination and cleaning. We want you to leave smiling!

Why it's important

Preventative Dentistry

Avoid Issues

Regular cleanings and good oral hygiene habits greatly reduce your risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral issues.

Catch Problems Early

Most dental issues can be reduced or eliminated if they are caught early before they become bigger problems. That's why early detection is crucial.

Learn Good Oral Habits

The key to strong, healthy teeth is good oral hygiene habits. We'll teach you the best way to keep your teeth clean at home.

Build Confidence

Your smile is your first impression, and a beautiful smile gives you more self-confidence. We'll work with you to create and maintain that beautiful smile.

Save Money

Catching problems early usually means less treatment and less treatment time, which also means less money spent.

Fewer Visits Overall

Healthy teeth mean fewer visits to the dentist. Regular checkups can prevent the need for visits because of cavities, gum disease, or other issues.

Common Questions About Preventative Dentistry

You should visit Family Smiles Dentistry every six months for a thorough examination and cleaning. 

All you need to look for is toothpaste with fluoride, which protects your teeth's enamel. The rest (flavor, whitening, sensitivity) is up to you. A manual, soft-bristled toothbrush is fine, but an electric toothbrush does the work better and faster! 

We can recommend you brush your teeth at least twice a day, but it's better if you brush after every meal. Brush for at least two minutes at a time, getting every surface of every tooth. Floss at least once a day, and floss BEFORE you brush so you can brush the food particles and plaque away!

As good as you are at brushing and flossing, you may have places you don't quite reach with your brush and floss. Plaque can build up there and become tartar, which can trap bacteria against the teeth and lead to tooth decay. A dental cleaning removes plaque and tarter, keeping your teeth clean and healthy!

We take x-rays and scans of your teeth to ensure you don't have hidden dental problems, such as cracks, weakened enamel, or more serious oral issues. The sooner we catch such issues, the faster and better we can treat them.
