If your teeth are healthy, don’t wait until treatment is necessary to visit us. The best way to ensure the health and comfort of your teeth is to visit us for one of our preventative maintenance services below:


Cleaning of the teeth done by a dental professional, it includes removal of plaque, calculus and extrinsic stains. It’s primary goal is to control gingivitis and prevent periodontal disease.

Topical Fluoride Varnish

Fluoride varnish is a topical agent used to kill bacteria, prevent tooth decay, re-mineralize the tooth surface and to treat tooth hypersensitivity.


Dental sealant is a thin, composite coating painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent tooth decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of the tooth. Sealants need to be checked for chipping or wearing at regular dental check-ups and replaced if necessary.

Space Maintenance

Space maintainers help “hold space” for permanent teeth. Your child may need one if he or she loses a baby tooth prematurely, before the permanent tooth is ready to erupt. This appliance preserves the space for the adult teeth until is ready to come into the mouth (erupt).
