DENTAL CLEANINGS

Good brushing and flossing habits are essential to maintaining the health of your teeth and gums; however, professional prophylaxis treatments are also vital to staving off future dental problems and keeping your teeth fresh and clean. Delightful Dental Care recommends at least two dental cleanings each year. We use only the most advanced dental technologies to ensure that your teeth cleanings are performed effectively and as comfortably as possible.

PERIODONTAL CARE

Periodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the care and maintenance of the gums and other soft tissues of the mouth. Proper gum care is essential to the overall health of your teeth and mouth. It is especially important to establish good gum care routines early in life, because gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

SEALANTS

Sealants are preventive treatments designed to keep cavities and decay from affecting your teeth. These common dental procedures are affixed over the chewing surfaces of your rear teeth, helping to prevent bacteria from entering into crevices along the teeth and causing damage. Sealant treatments are typically performed for children, helping to keep harmful bacteria from the teeth for years to come.

ORAL CANCER SCREENINGS

Oral cancer is a life-threatening condition that requires diagnosis and treatment as early as possible to reduce serious health risks. You will receive a complimentary oral cancer screening twice a year at your dental checkups. Remember, early diagnosis, and treatment are key to successfully overcoming oral cancer..
