Preventive dentistry helps you to keep a healthy mouth, therefore you need to have less dental treatment. The two main causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease. The better you prevent these two issues, the better likelihood you will have of keeping your teeth for life.
When the Hygienist and patient work together, a healthy mouth can be achieved, in term preventing the need for filings, crowns or extractions later. Your Hygienist will work with you to get your mouth into good condition, and then continue with a maintenance plan for optimal oral health.
Our goal is to aid the establishment of good oral hygiene habits at home while also addressing every concern for patients. We do this by aiming our focus on diagnosing, providing the best treatment option for each individual patient and scheduling time to be treated by our skilled team members.
Professional cleanings and exams create winning smiles and great oral health for a lifetime. As one of the best measures for preventing and detecting tooth decay and other dental problems, cleanings and exams are performed by a certified dental hygienist. These appointments typically last about an hour on average and include digital x-rays, oral cancer and periodontal disease screenings and a thorough evaluation of existing restorations and tooth surfaces.
After your appointment, Dr. Crane will meet with you and create a personalized dental plan.
