The real goal of preventive dentistry is to maintain oral health.
The preventive dentistry program that we offer consists of education for homecare practices, thorough examination and early interception of oral disease and structural compromises with predictable treatment modalities.
We aim to prevent the effects of dental disease from becoming cosmetic or comfort problems.
Preventing periodontal disease, bad breath and tooth decay means spending time with the hygienist and following her recommendations for oral homecare.
Preventing broken, worn, or sore teeth means making a plan with Dr. Enatsu. He certainly does not have a crystal ball to tell the future, but he can easily provide a maintenance schedule to fix any teeth that are more than likely going to be a future problem.
Our Periodontal Service includes
- Periodontal Charting
- Diagnostic Services
- Deep Scaling and Root Planning
- Oral Hygiene Instructions
