Preventive Dentistry

A Comprehensive Examination

Dr. Q will perform an in-depth evaluation of your teeth, gums, and entire mouth for any early signs of decay or gum disease. Should any problems be identified, she will present your treatment options.

An Oral Cancer Screening

Dr. Q will carefully examine your mouth for any suspicious-looking sores, or red or white patches on the cheeks and gums. If any questionable bumps or marks are found that could signal oral cancer, further testing will be administered.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride Treatment is a gel-like substance consisting of useful minerals. Dr. Q will apply the treatment to the surface of your teeth to strengthen them and prevent decay.

Digital X-Rays

We will take digital X-rays of your teeth, jaw, and mouth to get a more detailed look for any potential issues. The digital X-rays may reveal decay in between teeth, impacted teeth, infection, jaw damage, or jaw misalignment, all of which should be addressed immediately.

We also offer intraoral camera exams. The DIGIDOC cameras are amazing! Dr. Q takes a tour of your mouth and then shows you the findings at the end of your exam.

A Professional Cleaning

A professional teeth cleaning and polishing is very important as we can clean hard-to-reach places where plaque and tartar tend to build. We will use specialized dental instruments to clean the area below the gum line and in between the teeth; and we will also polish and floss the teeth. A professional cleaning significantly reduces the risk of cavities, gum disease, and many other dental issues.
