At Amelia Perfect Smile, our preventative care services protect your teeth from issues that may arise over time. There are a variety of steps that reduce the risks of needing restorative care.
Prevention is the best type of treatment. Dental sealants prevent food and bacteria from getting into your teeth’ little nooks and crannies. A dental sealant is a paste or gel formed from state-of-the-art dental materials. One of our preventative care specialists applies sealant to your tooth. It hardens to create a strong coat over your tooth
Contrary to popular belief, a root canal procedure doesn’t hurt at all. The root cause of tooth pain is an infection. The purpose of root canal therapy is to eliminate that pain. We take extra care to ensure you are comfortable and pain-free during a root canal treatment. With decades of experience, we know how to comfort even the most anxious patients and make the entire process as simple as possible.
Oral Cancer Screening
Our preventative care dental examination includes an oral cancer screening that is quick, thorough, and painless. It involves an examination of the following areas:
- Back of your throat
- The floor of your mouth
- The roof of your mouth
If our specialist finds something unusual, you may be referred to another office for further testing or re-examined later to see if there have been any changes.
