Preventative Care

A Healthy, Strong Smile Requires Regular Maintenance

Clairpointe Family Dental’s dental hygienist team is committed to educating patients on good oral hygiene and the direct relationship it bears to overall health.  At each professional cleaning appointment, your hygienist will begin with a blood pressure/heart rate check, then carefully examine your teeth, mouth, and gums, and pre-screen for any signs of decay, periodontal disease, or other problems. We may also take dental x-rays so the dentist can quickly diagnose any new or existing problem on the spot.

Oral Cancer Screenings Help Save Lives

Depending on your risk factors, our hygienists may recommend a ViziLite® Plus oral cancer screening. This screening can detect beginning signs of oral cancer  before they are visible to the naked eye.  This painless exam involves swishing with a solution to coat the inside of the mouth, followed by the hygienist examining all areas of the mouth with a special light looking for suspicious lesions. When oral cancer is found early, treatment is less invasive and outcomes are far better.

With oral health built on a solid foundation, you’ll enjoy a lifetime of smiles. Come experience the personalized care, quality materials, and contemporary technology that make Clairpointe dental visits rewarding.
