Preventive Care

Ignore your teeth and they'll go away! That's been our motto for the more than 35 years that we have been serving Edmonds. We think the message of prevention is loud and clear … and we are about prevention. Those regular, periodic visits for a cleaning and checkup can completely eliminate painful and costly surprises. A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by our dentist at your initial dental visit as well as at regular check-ups and will include the following:

Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs):

Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.

Periodontal (Gum) disease evaluation:

Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.

Oral cancer screening:

Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

Examination of tooth decay:

All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.

Examination of existing restorations:

Check current fillings, crowns, bridges, implants and dentures.
