PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY

Preventative dentistry is essential part of good oral health. At 4th Street Family Dentistry, we recommend visiting Dr. Brian Leeson at least twice a year for routine checkups and exams. That way, we can prevent and address any dental problems you may be having.

exams and cleanings

You can expect dental x-rays, a dental cleaning, and a comprehensive dental exam during your routine checkup at 4th Street Family Dentistry. Dental x-rays allow us to detect any underlying issues that you may have like cavities. During your professional dental cleaning, your hygienist will scale your gums, clean your teeth using professional equipment, and floss. Lastly, Dr. Brian Leeson will evaluate your oral health, examining your teeth, gums, tongue, and throat. For optimal oral health, we recommend seeing 4th Street Family Dentistry for a professional dental cleaning twice a year. 

dental sealants

A dental sealant protects your teeth from decay by sealing deep between the grooves of your teeth. Sealants are usually placed in the back of your mouth where your molars are. Dental sealants help protect your smile, so if you’re interested, ask Dr. Brian Leeson if dental sealants are an option for you.

Gum disease treatment

Majority of people will experience gum disease at least once in their lifetime. Luckily, gum disease can be treated. Gum disease starts at the gingivitis stage will progress to periodontal disease. Usually you’ll start to noice redness and inflammation in your gums which is due to build up bacteria. If you think you may have gum disease, contact 4th Street Family Dentistry to schedule gum disease treatment.

Deep cleanings

Dental cleanings are more extensive than standard dental cleanings. When there is an excessive amount of plaque, gum disease can form and affect your whole health. So, if you are suffering from severe plaque build up you will likely need a professional deep cleaning to stop the gum disease from progressing.
