Our complete oral exams include:

Gum Disease Evaluation — Our knowledgeable dental team checks
your gums and bone around your teeth for any signs of periodontal
disease.

 

Tooth Decay Screening — We examine all of your tooth surfaces for
decay and make necessary recommendations.

and crowns.

 

Occlusion Analysis — An improper bite can impact the overall structure

problems.

 

Sealants - Sealants are a great way to protect against tooth decay and
cavities on your child’s back teeth (molars). These are the teeth that are
most vulnerable to cavities and decay because they are used in the chewing
process, and are the most difficult to reach and clean. Molars first come in
at around 5-7 years of age, with a second set coming in between the ages
of 11-14. It is best to have a sealant placed when the molars first come in to
ensure they are protected early. The sealant creates a barrier between the
tooth and any plaque, food particles, and bacteria. Sealants last for about
10 years and can be reapplied if necessary.
