Cleaning & Prevention

Cleaning & Prevention

Keeping a regular preventative maintenance schedule with your hygienist and Dr. Jackson or Dr. Boettger help you prevent not only tooth decay and periodontal disease but also avoid costly procedures and extra time in the hygiene chair.

A regular home prevention routine usually consists of brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once per day. But did you know there are other tools to make taking care of your mouth a little easier? Depending on your needs, there is special toothpaste, rinses, and even flossing aids that can help you keep your smile bright and healthy for years to come. Lawton Dental and Implants can help you find the best tools to enhance your daily hygiene routine making your professional cleaning appointments shorter and less stressful.

Another significant factor in your oral health is your diet. Acidic foods and drinks can erode enamel just as a balanced diet can help keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy.

Regular professional exams and cleanings, a dedicated at-home hygiene routine, and a healthy, balanced diet can help prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment is one of the best ways to be proactive about your oral health. It’s a quick, inexpensive procedure that can reduce your risk of tooth decay and prevent the need for more invasive and costly treatments later on.

Dental Exams & Cleanings

Who doesn’t love that freshly polished feel of your teeth after a cleaning? Our highly-trained, compassionate registered dental hygienists do more than just polish your teeth. They remove plaque, tartar buildup, probe your gums for signs of periodontal disease, and much more!

Sealants

Sealants can dramatically reduce the number of cavities a child might develop over the course of their childhood. On the chewing surface of molars, deep grooves run into the center of the teeth.

Dental X-Rays

Digital sensors capture detailed x-ray images with a fraction of the exposure found in traditional film x-rays. Technological advancements in x-ray technology provide multiple benefits, from safety to improved treatment results.
