Importance of Preventative Dental Care
Our focus on preventative care allows you to stay diligent when maintaining your oral health. Just schedule an appointment for every six months and we’ll provide an exam, teeth cleaning, and X-rays when needed.
With our support, it’s possible to avoid plaque build up, reducing the risk of severe tooth decay, gum disease, and many other dental issues. We can also spot and diagnose other diseases such as oral cancer during your visits.
We’re even your main source of support for preventing dental trauma. If you play high-impact sports, for example, we can fit you with an athletic mouthguard that shields your teeth and gums from damage.

When To Come in for Preventative Care
Preventative care works best when completed on a regular basis. The ideal timing for these care appointments is different for each person.
Most children and adults should visit Pine Creek Dental twice a year for an exam and teeth cleaning. If you have gum disease or advanced tooth decay, you may need to come in more often.
As you develop a dental routine with Dr. Thompson and our staff we will be able to detect changes to your teeth, gums and soft tissue easily and provide the care you need to prevent issues from worsening.
