The Benefits

Why Should I Get Preventive Care?

Preventive dental care is at the heart of all types of dental care. Six-month teeth cleanings and oral exams help your dentist keep track of your oral health, and catch dental health problems like cavities early.

Catching these issues early saves you time and money by reducing the need for more complex, invasive dental care. Here are a few common preventive treatments at our practice:

  • Cleaning & Hygiene
  • Digital X-Rays
  • Fluoride Treatments
  • Dental Sealants
  • Periodontal Care
  • Oral Cancer Screenings
  • Night Guards

Here’s How It Works


Teeth Cleaning & X-Rays

If you’re a new patient or it’s been more than 12 months, you’ll get a set of x-rays at our office. Then, one of our team members will thoroughly clean and examine your teeth.


Oral Exam

Next, Dr. Austin will enter the room, examine your x-rays, and perform a comprehensive oral exam to look for any potential oral health issues.


Treatment Plan

If everything looks good, you’ll be sent home after you schedule your next appointment. But if you need further treatment, Dr. Austin will discuss your options with you, and come up with a customized treatment plan.
