Protect Your Oral and Overall Health

Your oral cavity is a gateway to the rest of your body. Therefore, preventive dental care does much more than preserve the function and aesthetics of your mouth. It actually helps you stay healthy from head to toe! It spares you from future pain and can even save you money on future treatments. You have every reason to be diligent about protecting your teeth and gums. To help you do that, we offer several preventive services here at The Center for Contemporary Dentistry.

Why Choose The Center for Contemporary Dentistry for Preventive Dental Care?

Dental Checkups & Cleanings

Our dental hygienists are highly educated and experienced; they are trained in the latest methods of preventive hygiene. They also possess the skills necessary to use soft tissue lasers to carry out “deep cleanings,” which fight bacterial invasions and help to stop the progress of gum and bone disease. Our hygienists are even Laser Certified by The American Academy of Laser Dentistry. They also continually take educational classes on the latest advances and technology in oral health care. Routine visits with our hygienist are designed to keep your smile healthy and functional for life.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Tens of thousands of people are diagnosed with oral cancer every year. Many of them do not catch the disease until it has already progressed to a point where extensive treatment is necessary. Through regular oral cancer screenings, we aim to spot signs of this disease as early as possible so patients can be treated as conservatively as possible. The screening process is fast, painless, and noninvasive. If we notice any cause for concern, we will advise you on how to get further testing.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that helps to rebuild little bits of tooth enamel that get worn away due to daily activities. Most types of toothpaste, as well as many municipal water sources, contain fluoride. We can also give you an extra boost of this tooth-fortifying mineral right here in our office. It is a simple and quick process that can help to protect your smile from the ravages of tooth decay.

Children’s Dentistry

We enjoy working with patients of all ages, including small children. Our team’s friendly disposition helps to put young ones at ease, and we are always gentle and patient when treating our youngest patients. Our goal is to help your little ones adopt a positive view of the dentist, maintain sound teeth and gums, and learn good habits that will help them to enjoy a lifetime of sound oral health.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal treatment starts with prevention. Regular cleanings and good hygiene habits are excellent precautions again gum disease. The main cause of periodontal disease is bacteria in the form of a sticky, colorless plaque that constantly forms on your teeth. However, other factors can also cause the disease or influence its progression. Periodontal laser therapy treats the disease more effectively and comfortably than ever. It removes scar tissue in periodontal pockets, kills harmful bacteria, and promotes the reattachment of gums to teeth.

Scaling, root planing, and local delivery of antimicrobials can treat the disease and stop its progression. In some cases, surgical therapy or cosmetic solutions may also be necessary to help patients fully recover from gum disease. Dr. Patel can evaluate your situation and present the best treatment options for you.
