Brushing and flossing, while vital to oral health, are not enough to ensure your smile stays beautiful for life. The American Dental Association recommends regular visits to the dentist to ensure your teeth stay clean and strong.

Preventive dentistry services, or services that help maintain good oral hygiene, are readily available at Minnehaha Family Dentistry in order to keep your smile healthy and beautiful.

Preventive Dentistry Services at Minnehaha Family Dentistry

Regular dental exams at our Minnehaha office help ensure the health of your mouth, including your teeth and gums. We offer a number of preventive dental services to help you avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and other oral issues that can arise.

Dental Teeth Cleanings

Our friendly doctor and dental professionals provide professional teeth cleaning to remove dental plaque to help prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Your teeth will also be polished, which helps in the look and feel while protecting them from future plaque accumulation.

Digital Dental X-Rays

We use state-of-the-art technology to administer digital x-rays for your teeth in order to get a good picture of your current dental status. A good x-ray can help in properly diagnosing an appropriate procedure or preventative strategy for your teeth.

Dental Sealants for Adults

Dental sealants are a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of your teeth — usually the back teeth (the premolars and molars) — to prevent tooth decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth.

Dental Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatment involves topical application of fluoride directly to the teeth. This treatment is used to prevent tooth decay.
