The best way to prevent oral health conditions and dental emergencies is effective preventive dentistry, which means maintaining a regular oral health care routine at home and at Tippit Dental Group. We offer a wide range of preventive dentistry services in all three of our locations to help your entire family maintain a healthy and comfortable smile.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
When our dentists perform an oral exam, they evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, and bite to ensure that you are healthy. In addition, you can expect a periodontal evaluation and an oral cancer screening at each hygiene appointment. We will alert you to any conditions that require treatment and help you make a good decision regarding your oral health.
We always explain all treatment options so that you have the information you need to make healthy choices!
Professional Dental Cleanings
Professional dental cleanings are an essential part of every oral health routine. Our dental cleanings are individualized to meet your needs and help to keep your gums healthy.
If you have periodontal disease, we can create an effective treatment plan that allows you to get back on track to good health. We focus on removing any signs of infection to promote healing in your tissue. Every patient is different, and our hygiene team will provide you with the customized treatment you need to stay healthy.
We can help you establish a good home care regimen for yourself as well as your children. We will demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques and recommend any products we think will improve your oral health.
Knowledge is power and it can keep your smile healthy and strong!
Additional Preventive Treatments
If you need a little additional protection against dental decay, we offer both fluoride and dental sealants. Fluoride helps to harden your enamel and protect your teeth from acidic bacteria that cause decay.
Dental sealants are a protective barrier between food particles and the deep grooves in your teeth. We place dental sealants on the chewing surfaces of your teeth where bacteria are likely to collect.
For patients with a clenching and grinding habit, we may recommend a nightguard to protect your teeth while you sleep. Clenching and grinding can cause cracked teeth, sensitivity, and gum recession. By wearing a nightguard, you can prevent unnecessary damage and wake up feeling more comfortable. Nightguards can also help reduce headaches.
