Staying up to date on your dental care is very important for your dental health. Stop in today and have Dr. Eggleston check for minor problems before they become worse. Get a professional prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) to preserve your sparkling smile.

We help you prevent painful dental problems in the future.

Adequate dental care is a method of preventative care that helps you maintain great oral health. We take notice of the overall health of your teeth and gums.  

 

After reviewing your complete medical history to become well acquainted with your needs, we also perform oral cancer screenings and exam radiographs to see if any problems exist below the surface.  We offer fluoride varnish and high fluoride toothpaste for additional preventative measures.  

Preventative

One of the most important factors in your long term dental health is your knowledge of good dental care. We teach you how to achieve optimal oral health and answer any questions.  After you leave our office, you will know how to keep your smile beautiful with good daily habits.

 

Do not hesitate to contact us or ask us any questions about your role in your dental care.

Digital Radiographs

This routine procedure captures what is occurring under the surface of your dental health. Using a sensor, digital images are captured and stored instantly in our computer system.  These images will help the dentist to diagnose the best treatment for your individual oral hygiene.

- Cysts

- Bone loss

- Tumors

- Decay between the teeth

- Developmental abnormalities

- Poor tooth and root positions

- Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line

Radiographs may detect the following:

Dental X-Rays

Like digital x-rays, dental x-rays help detect what is going on in areas that cannot be seen with the  eye alone. This type of x-ray captures radiographs of a patient's teeth. It is recommended to get dental x-rays twice a year for diagnosis of any issues and for preventative future care.

Home Care

Oral health truly starts at home with a healthy routine. Regularly brushing twice a day, flossing and rinsing your mouth out with water or prescribed mouth rinses can all play an integral role in controlling plaque build-up and bacteria.

On the day of your appointment Dr. Eggleston will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health and the hygienist will perform a dental prophylaxis.  These procedures include:

What to expect on the day of your exam

- Examining radiographs to diagnose conditions                                

- Checking gingival tissues and bone for health                                  

- Close examination of restorations to check for defects/wear

- Removal of plaque and tartar from teeth and gum line

- Removal of stains and plaque build-up

- Examining teeth for signs of decay

- Screening for oral cancer
