Preventive Care in Halethorpe

Preventive care is key to maintaining your oral health and avoiding complex dental issues down the line. It helps us identify problems early and keeps your teeth and gums healthy for years to come.

Why Should I Get Preventive Care?

Investing in preventive care is investing in your overall well-being. Regular check-ups and cleanings not only keep your smile bright but also can detect early signs of dental issues, saving you time and discomfort.

Our Preventive Dental Treatments

Periodontal Care

Our periodontal care focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating gum disease. We offer cleanings, scaling, and root planing to keep your gums healthy and prevent tooth loss.

Night Guards

For those who grind their teeth at night, our custom-fitted night guards protect against wear and tear, prevent jaw pain, and promote better sleep patterns.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride strengthens enamel, making your teeth more resistant to decay. Our fluoride treatments can help protect your teeth from cavities and reverse early signs of tooth decay.

Dental Sealants

Sealants provide a protective shield over the grooves of your teeth, preventing food and bacteria from getting stuck and causing cavities. They are an excellent preventive measure for patients of all ages.

Cleaning & Hygiene

Professional cleanings and proper hygiene are the foundations of good oral health. Our thorough cleanings remove plaque and tartar build-up, preventing decay and gum disease.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Early detection is crucial with oral cancer. Our screenings are quick, non-invasive, and could save your life by identifying cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions early.

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays offer a detailed view of your dental health, helping us catch issues invisible to the naked eye. They're faster and use less radiation than traditional X-rays.
