Preventative Dental Care

You can ask any dentist, the best way to keep your teeth and smile looking healthy for a lifetime is routine preventative dental care. You can avoid many major treatments down the road if Dr. McNeely has the opportunity to find and treat problems while they are small. There is nothing better than the real thing, and keeping your teeth natural, healthy, and beautiful are McNeely Family Dentistry’s top priority.

Preventative Care

There will never be a moment that you regret having routine preventative care done during your exam, and a lot of these treatments are covered by dental insurance already. The benefits greatly outweigh the cons; in fact there are no cons at all! Here is a list of the preventative treatments we provide at McNeely Family Dentistry:

Routine Cleanings & Exams

This is one that hopefully most of you are familiar with! Routine dental cleanings are important because even the most diligent brusher and flosser could be missing a certain area without knowing it. Routine cleanings and examinations will clean even the smallest and hard to reach crevices on your teeth.

Dental Cleaning

Digital X-rays & Digital Panoramic X-rays

When we take a digital X-ray of your mouth, Dr. McNeely will be able to see how your teeth look inside your jaw. They will also give him an idea of your past dental work by showing dental implants or other such work. They show many things that aren’t discernible to the naked eye, and will give you the most comprehensive approach to preventative dentistry.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a term you’ve probably seen on your toothpaste, but did you know that in some cities it is even added to your drinking water? Fluoride is a natural mineral that promotes healthy enamel and helps to fight tooth decay. Our fluoride treatments are of a higher concentration that should only be applied twice a year.

Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

Our younger patients are much more prone to cavities because they haven’t perfected their brushing techniques and more likely to eat a lot of sweets. To combat this, Dr. McNeely will apply a thin sealant to the molars that effectively seals the tooth from caries and plaque.

Athletic Mouthguards & Nightguards for Bruxism

Do you or your partner grind your teeth at night? This constant pressure causes damage to your teeth but can also lead to headaches and jaw pain. Our jaws exert an enormous amount of pressure when it clenches, and the complex muscles around your jaw can strain and become tired. Our teeth will also eventually wear down from the grinding. To prevent this, Dr. McNeely can fit you with a small and comfortable nightquard that protects your teeth and takes the strain away from your jaw muscles.

Athletic mouthguards help protect your teeth from injury where something seemingly out of the blue can cause dental trauma. Studies show that you are 60 times more likely to damage your teeth during athletic events when you don’t wear a mouthguard. Dr. McNeely will help you pick out the right size, shape, and color to fit your personality. Keep your teeth safe with athletic mouthguards!
