At Health Centered Dentistry, our mission goes far beyond just cleaning and fixing teeth. Our mission is to help our patients achieve their best oral health, their best overall health, and a sense of personal wellness that comes along with a healthy smile. General dentistry is the routine preventive care and maintenance that keeps our patients healthy and smiling for life.
At Health Centered Dentistry, we truly believe that prevention is the best medicine. We would much rather see you in our office twice yearly for your regular cleanings and exams, than not see you for a few years and have to treat advanced gum disease (periodontitis) or do complex restorative work. We want to help our patients maintain optimum oral health by preventing painful and costly complications before they arise. The most important factors when it comes to preventive care include:
While having your teeth cleaned regularly by a professional is extremely important, that’s not the only reason we like to see you twice yearly at Health Centered Dentistry. Your regular visits also include exams and screenings so we can keep an eye on what’s going on in your mouth, and catch any signs of potential problems before they become serious. We perform a periodontal check to look for signs of gum disease, a cavity check to look for signs of decay, and an oral cancer screening to check for abnormalities that may be potential signs of oral cancer. Early detection ensures the most effective treatment and recovery.
