Cleanings & X-Rays

Teeth cleanings are at the heart of preventive dentistry. During routine appointments, our oral hygienists will remove plaque and tartar, buff and polish your teeth, and check for signs of gum disease and cavities. Then, our dentists will perform a comprehensive oral exam and take x-rays to ensure that your mouth is healthy. Our thorough approach to preventive appointments ensures that any issues are caught before they become bigger problems. You’ll always leave our office with peace of mind, feeling happier and healthier than when you arrived.

Fluoride Treatments

With this fast, effective treatment, patients can reverse the beginning stages of tooth decay and prevent cavities. During this non-invasive, painless procedure, one of our dentists will apply fluoride directly to the affected tooth. Fluoride is a mineral that has the unique ability to strengthen enamel that has been weakened by early signs of decay. When applied in time, fluoride treatments can even remineralize soft spots, saving your tooth from decay. Ask us about a fluoride treatment during your next checkup!

Dental Sealants

Rear molars are at high risk of developing cavities, but dental sealants form a barrier on the surface of your teeth to protect them from direct contact with acid, sugar, and bacteria. Sealants consist of a special type of dental resin that is applied to your teeth after they have been cleaned. This hard plastic resin creates a shield to help you prevent cavities and other oral issues. Once applied, dental sealants can last up to 10 years.

The Importance Of Six-Month Cleanings & Exams

One of the immediate benefits of coming to Deer Park Dental regularly for cleanings and exams is that you’ll have peace of mind because you’ll know that your mouth is healthy. Cleanings help remove plaque and tartar, which can contribute to gum disease and tooth decay. Regular six-month cleanings also save you time and money because they allow our team to catch any small issues before they become bigger, more costly problems.
