Preventive dental care is a whole lot easier, more effective and affordable than treatment especially when it concerns your oral health. We offer comprehensive oral examinations for preventive care. These are designed for early detection of any potential dental problems which may affect your overall health. During your oral screening,
Dr. Long evaluates your teeth, tongue, gums, jaw, mouth, cheeks and neck to diagnose any signs or symptoms of a serious underlying condition. Our preventive care services include:

  • oral examination

    Annual Oral Examination

    With this, you can get a thorough assessment of your overall oral health. It is performed for the earliest possible diagnosis of dental issues so that timely treatment can be carried out.

  • dental xrays

    X-Rays

    We use digital X-ray technology to examine the underlying state of your oral health. It helps us diagnose gum disease, tooth decay, bone volume, bone density and the inner structure of the jawbone.

  • dental bite

    Bite Analysis

    This includes a detailed analysis of your jaw health, bite function, teeth health and surrounding tissues. It is used to identify signs of a bad or an unbalanced bite so that the problem can be rectified with timely treatment.

  • flouride treatment

    Fluoride Treatment

    Fluoride is incorporated into the teeth’s mineral structure to strengthen them and make them more decay-resistant.

  • Sealant Application

    Sealant Application

    To safeguard your rear teeth against tooth decay, a sealant is filled in the gaps and depressions in and around them. The sealant creates a protective layer over the enamel of your tooth.

  • oral cancer screening

    Oral Cancer Screening

    This assessment helps us detect oral cancers in their earliest stages. This is important because early diagnosis enables us to help provide appropriate and timely treatment.

Apart from our inclusive services listed above, here are some preventive care tips which you can include in your oral care routine to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy:

  • Brush twice a day.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Use a fluoride toothpaste to remove plaque from the enamel.
  • Use mouthwash to kill decay-causing bacteria.
  • Schedule a teeth cleaning appointment every six months.
