Family Dentistry

Dental Services For The Whole Family

Preventive dentistry includes periodic oral examination, regular cleaning, Fluoride, oral and systemic disease identification and referral to specialists when particular conditions are suspected. An important part of preventive dentistry performed in our office is educating patients about at-home care, nutrition, and smoking cessation. Dr. Mallette and his staff explain proper brushing and flossing techniques, and may prescribe medications to help prevent dental disease.

Oral evaluation includes examination of the teeth and soft tissue, using visual and tactile exams, radiographic examination, and oral cancer screening. In addition, it includes techniques to diagnose periodontal, or gum disease. Conditions in the oral cavity may be indicative of systemic diseases such as osteoporosis, diabetes, or cancer.

We encourage prevention of oral diseases through proper hygiene and regular, twice yearly, checkups for professional cleaning and evaluation. The prophylaxis, or the cleaning of the teeth, will help removing accumulations of plaque and calculus.
