Prevention: Keeping Your Teeth Healthy

Our preventive measures ensure the continued good health of your gums and teeth. We’ll also take special care of existing dental work and any implants or prostheses you may have. In the process, we develop customized preventive concepts for both children and adults.

Dr. Blankenship and his staff want to catch problems before they begin. That is why having regular checkups and cleanings is so important. At each cleaning appointment, your hygienist and Dr. Blankenship will evaluate each of your teeth by using x-rays and clinically probing them to make sure old restorations are intact and functioning properly, and if there are any new problems, they are identified and treated early.

Our prevention services include:

  • Routine exams and dental cleanings
  • Oral hygiene instructions
  • Laser diagnosis to detect cavities early
  • Sealants for permanent teeth to prevent decay
  • Fluoride treatments for children and adolescents
  • Phosphorus treatments to prevent decay (white spots/brown spots)
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Snoring and grinding appliances
