Routine Cleanings and Prevention in Lafayette, IN

Making sure that your family receives good preventative dental care is the best and most important thing that you can do for your family's oral health. Visiting your dentist regularly for reevaluation appointments is essential. For most patients with healthy gums this interval is twice per year. If you have been treated for gum disease or have gingivitis your dentist may recommend that your reevaluation appointments occur at more frequent intervals.  

Reevaluation appointments consist of oral cancer screenings, radiographs when needed for diagnosis, cleaning and polishing, and evaluation of your teeth and gums. We will evaluate your hygiene techniques and make suggestions on how to improve them when needed. Suggestions for modifying your diet to improve your oral health will be reviewed, if tooth decay is present. Preventative measures such as sealants, nightguards, and increased fluoride exposure will be discussed when they are indicated based on oral conditions.
