Preventive Dental Care

Everyone wants to have a healthy, disease-free smile. Cowley Dental Care offers exceptional preventive dentistry to help patients attain smiles they can enjoy for a lifetime. 

Preventive dental care can help reduce the risk for certain illnesses, and it can also help achieve and maintain excellent oral health. For instance, dental sealants can prevent 80 percent of cavities in children! 

We want you to have a smile that makes you look and feel great, and preventive dentistry helps us support you in this goal. Our preventive care strengthens teeth, protects smiles against cavities, prevents plaque buildup, and freshens breath. 

Preventive Dental Exams and Cleanings 

We recommend twice-yearly oral exams and teeth cleanings to maintain healthy teeth and gums. During these regularly scheduled appointments, your dentist and one of our skilled dental hygienists will do the following:

  • Visual inspection of your teeth, gums, oral tissues, and jaws
  • Evaluate the health of your teeth and gums 
  • Take digital dental and/or panoramic x-rays, if needed
  • Remove plaque and tartar from teeth
  • Apply fluoride or sealants, if needed
  • Screen for oral cancer 

Our thorough dental exams and cleanings allow us to check your oral health, monitor any underlying or apparent issues, discuss your concerns and goals, and more. Usually, new patients will receive a cleaning during their first appointment unless there are more pressing issues to address, such as gum disease or a broken filling. 

If the cleaning is not completed on the first visit, we will schedule your cleaning for a time that works best for you. Either the dentist or dental hygienist will perform cleanings, depending on your needs. We will teach you how to prevent cavities at home through brushing and flossing. We will also discuss other oral health habits you can practice to keep your teeth clean and gums disease-free. 

We Strive to Deliver Exceptional Service

At Cowley Dental Care, every patient has peace of mind knowing they will see the same dedicated dental team each time they visit. Our dentists take the time to speak with each patient to learn about their oral health needs, concerns, and goals so we can give you the personalized treatment each patient deserves. Every patient is the most important person in our dental office, and we will always do what we can to make sure each patient is comfortable, safe, and happy in our care.
