Preventive dental care is the foundation of maintaining optimal oral health and preventing the onset of various dental issues. At our office, we take a proactive approach to preventive care for long-lasting dental wellness.

Routine Dental Checkups

Regular dental checkups play a pivotal role in preventive care. Dr. Rebecca Hausten recommends biannual visits for comprehensive examinations, professional cleanings and early detection of potential issues. These routine checkups allow for timely intervention and the establishment of personalized preventive strategies. 

Professional Cleanings for Plaque and Tartar Removal

Professional cleanings are essential in preventing the buildup of plaque and tartar, which contribute to cavities and gum disease. Our dentist and skilled dental hygienists use specialized tools to thoroughly clean teeth, reaching areas that may be challenging to clean with regular brushing and flossing.


Education on Home Care Practices

Educating patients on effective brushing, flossing techniques and the use of antimicrobial mouthwashes empowers individuals to take an active role in their oral health. This knowledge contributes significantly to preventing common dental issues. 

Preventive Treatments and Sealants

In addition to routine care, preventive treatments such as dental sealants can provide an extra layer of protection, particularly for molars prone to decay. Dr. Hausten may recommend sealants for both children and adults to safeguard vulnerable areas from bacteria and acids.
