At the office of Dr. Eric C. Green, we utilize leading-edge technology and methods of care to provide comprehensive preventive services for your whole family. Our state-of-the-art preventive program is designed to help you and your loved ones maintain a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles. For optimal oral health, we recommend periodic visits to our Carey dental office for professional teeth cleanings, comprehensive examinations and oral cancer screenings.
Preventing adverse conditions, such as tooth decay and gum disease, involves brushing and flossing, limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages and periodic professional teeth cleanings. These steps help protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. When you visit our Carey dental office for a teeth cleaning, our professional team thoroughly removes plaque, tartar and food debris from the most difficult to reach crevices of your mouth, and offers guidance on how to improve your at-home oral care routine. Education is an important preventive tool, especially for our youngest patients, and we strive to teach children healthy habits that will last a lifetime. For pediatric patients, we also offer additional levels of protection against tooth decay with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children. A preventive visit for patients of all ages also includes an examination of the teeth, gums and all of the tissues in and around the oral cavity. With a focus on early detection and intervention, we aim to diagnose oral health problems from the outset, when they are typically the easiest to treat.
When you bring your family in for preventive checkups at our Carey dental office, you can expect personalized attention and compassionate treatment from a friendly team of professionals. At the office of Dr. Eric C. Green, our goal is to keep your teeth healthy from the start. To schedule a checkup or to learn more, call today.
