Preventive Care

Maintaining Your Oral Health
Regular visits to the dentist have been proven to help prevent dental decay and gum disease. Dr. Crunk and our Hygiene Team work together to monitor your dental health and perform preventive treatments to help keep your smile healthy.

dental hygiene teamOur recommended oral health regimen includes:

Routine Cleanings and Checkups
We recommend that our patients visit our office every 3-6 months for routine preventive care. At this visit, we will take necessary digital xrays and Dr. Crunk will perform a dental examination to evaluate the condition of your teeth, gums and jaw joints. We may recommend fluoride treatments or sealants for your child to help prevent tooth decay.

Periodontal Health Assessment
At each checkup visit, Dr. Crunk and our Hygienists will measure your gums and closely monitor your digital xrays to look for signs of periodontal (gum) disease.

Oral Cancer Screening
In the U.S., oral cancer is responsible for one death every hour, 24 hours a day (www.oralcancer.org). At each preventive visit, Dr. Crunk will thoroughly examine the tongue and oral soft tissue to look for changes or lesions that may be related to oral cancer. Tobacco use is a leading cause of oral cancer. We encourage our patients to discontinue use of all tobacco products, and are always very proud of them when they quit!

Dental Sealants
dental cleanings, sealants A dental sealant is a plastic coating that is painted onto the chewing surface of a tooth to seal deep grooves that can sometimes be an entry point for decay-causing bacteria. Sealants create a smooth surface that is easier to keep clean and can last for years.
  • Sealants require no drilling or anesthetic, and are a great preventive procedure for children to help protect permanent teeth.
