The Importance of Preventative Care 

Dental check-ups are as important to overall health as annual check-ups at your primary doctor’s office. Regular hygiene visits and dental examinations are the key to maintaining your oral health, preventing potential dental or gum issues, and providing peace of mind that your mouth and smile are in optimal condition. At your regular check-ups, our team will be able use dental x-rays and examinations to detect tooth decay or gum disease, then take the needed steps to help you obtain overall health of your teeth and gums. Check-up frequency is determined by your individual needs and will be discussed in your treatment plan.

Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most fundamental yet important preventative treatments we provide at our office. During the cleaning, our team will remove plaque and tartar as well as evaluate the health of your gums. We happily educate our patients on oral health and offer homecare instructions to ensure you will be able to maintain your healthy, bright smile in between cleanings.

Dental Cleaning

Deep dental cleanings, or scaling and root planing, is a specialized treatment designed to clean bacteria and buildup deep below the gum tissue where your toothbrush and floss cannot reach. Each tooth is thoroughly cleaned below the gum line, removing plaque, calculus, and harmful bacteria. After an examination, we will determine if you are a candidate for this type of cleaning.

Your first visit to Greenwood Dental Arts is crucial to crafting the most effective dental treatment plan for you. During the appointment, we'll make recommendations for same-day diagnostics such as x-rays, digital scans or models, and photographs of your teeth.  

 

On your second visit, we will have studied your dental history, so we will be ready to conduct a complete dental examination and schedule a personalized cleaning with a hygienist. We believe that this investment in time establishes a mutually trusting relationship and will help prevent any dental emergencies in the future.

Oral cancer screening is a comprehensive examination to detect early signs of malignant changes in the oral cavity. Unlike routine dental check-ups that primarily focus on cavities, gum health, and other common dental concerns, the oral cancer test digs deeper. It aims to identify precancerous lesions or cancer at a stage where it is more manageable and treatable.

Dental Sealants create a barrier that shields your teeth from harmful bacteria and acids, they provide durable protection for several years with minimal maintenance required, create a smooth surface on the chewing surfaces of your teeth, making them easier to clean and maintain and are particularly beneficial for children and adolescents.
