Preventative Dentistry What to Expect

Early Detection Through Routine Dental Cleanings

Routine examinations and teeth cleanings allow us to identify problems in the earliest stages and recommend the most conservative treatment options. Additionally, routine dental care is an important part of post treatment care to ensure that your dental restorations continue to look and function their best.

During the routine dentist visit, we will screen for cavities, gum disease, TMJ disorders and oral cancer. If problems are detected, Dr. Sinclair or Dr. Reichley may complete additional diagnostic imaging or tests to devise a treatment plan.

They are some of the few dentists in the area to offer laser dentistry to treat gum disease. The Waterlase dental laser enables Dr. Sinclair or Dr. Reichley to treat and repair damaged or diseased gum tissue that may have previously required oral surgery.

If you are displaying early signs or symptoms of gum disease, we may perform scaling and root planing procedures to remove plaque and tartar from deep pockets in the gum. This type of intensive teeth cleaning can help to prevent gum disease from progressing and allow the damaged tissue to repair itself.

There are a number of treatments for cavities. Depending on the extent of the tooth decay, treatment may be as simple as a dental filling. In some cases, a root canal may be needed.
