Preventive dentistry is an important part of overall health and wellness. We provide services that help individuals avoid costly and painful dental procedures, as well as improving their overall health. Regular visits to our office for checkups and cleanings can significantly reduce the risk of developing expensive and costly dental problems.
Professional Cleaning & Exam
A professional cleaning and exam is a routine dental appointment that is essential for maintaining optimal oral health. It is a preventative measure that helps to identify any potential dental issues early on, before they become more serious problems that can lead to pain, discomfort, and expensive treatments.
Scaling & Root Planing
Dental scaling and root planning (SRP) is a non-surgical procedure used to treat gum disease or periodontitis, a common dental problem that occurs when bacteria build up on the teeth and gums. This can cause inflammation, swelling, and bleeding, and eventually, lead to tooth loss. Scaling and root planing is a common treatment for early-stage gum disease.
BOOST® Teeth Whitening
Having a bright and sparkling smile can make a huge difference in your confidence and the way you present yourself. Teeth whitening is an effective and affordable way to improve the appearance of your teeth. Whether you’re looking for a quick fix or a longer-term solution, there are plenty of ways to get the perfect smile.
Dental Implants & Denture Stabilization
Denture stabilization involves the use of dental implants to secure the dentures in place. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone tissue to provide a stable and durable foundation for replacement teeth.
For our patients at West Harbor Dental who experience anxiety about visiting the dentist, sedation dentistry provides a way to reduce or eliminate that fear. When anxiety about visiting the dentist reaches a level that impacts your need to seek out treatment – even when you are experiencing pain – you are more likely to develop severe problems.
