Keeping you healthy through regular check-ups.
Preventative dentistry involves routine cleanings to ensure teeth are strong and healthy. Regular dental check-ups help you avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel loss, gingivitis, and periodontitis.
Our preventative dentistry services include:
Regular dental cleanings and exams (recommended every six months) allow dentists to diagnose and address problems immediately. Cleanings include tooth scaling, tooth polishing, stain, plaque, and tartar removal, flossing, and more.
Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings used to prevent tooth decay. They are commonly used on our back teeth (premolars and molars) to fill in narrow grooves that may not be cleaned adequately by brushing.
Examinations are included in regular cleanings. Dr. Kross and his team evaluate gum tissue, examine and screen for oral cancer, review biting, chewing, and swallowing patterns, and perform x-rays to detect tooth decay.
Emergency Dental Service
Emergency dentistry is critical when you have been in an accident or have experienced injury to your teeth, mouth, or jaw. Our team is able to address oral injuries quickly to prevent more extensive, costly restorative dental treatments.
