Preventive Dental Care

Staying on top of your preventive dental care is very important to help you avoid issues with your oral health. Preventive dental care begins at home with good oral hygiene habits. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing. This will help limit the amount of procedures needed in the future. When you are in need of a preventive dental care dentist, Dr. Dalesandro can help. Below you'll be able to find more information on our procedures and treatments.

Comprehensive Examination

Preventive dental care is the best thing we can provide our patients. Comprehensive Dental Examinations are recommended for all our new and returning patients in order to maintain their dental health.

Periodic Examination

We want to find out about oral problems as soon as they arise. Preventive dental care helps us achieve this. The best way is through periodic dental examinations. Our exams include:
  • Periodontal Disease Screening

    Periodontal Disease Screening

    You won't notice this disease on your own until it starts causing pain in the advanced stages. By then your gums and bones will be permanently damaged. Our screening will show if you're one of the 3 in 4 adults being affected by the disease.

  • Oral Cancer Screening

    Oral Cancer Screening

    We'll check for lumps, sores, masses, or changes in color on your gums. You could have a higher chance of cancer based on your habits or family history.

  • Caries Detection

    Caries Detection

    Caries is the scientific name for tooth decay and crumbling. We utilize surface exploration, radio-graphic data, and other technology to detect it in our periodic exam to assist with preventive dental care.

  • Radio-graphic Evaluation

    Radio-graphic Evaluation

    It can be impossible to detect certain dental problems without an X-Ray. We use Radio-graphic technology in order to provide the best care possible for our patients.


Children get pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of their molars in hard-to-reach that are prone to decay. We recommend sealing those pits to provide protection while they learn to effectively take care of their teeth. This will help achieve the best preventive dental care results.

Professional Dental Cleaning

While regular oral hygiene is essential for your dental health and preventing disease, it can only go so far. Your toothbrush is completely ineffective at removing tartar, which holds bacteria than can result in Periodontal disease. We offer in-house treatments like Deep Cleanings and Surgery by our Professional Periodontal Specialists.
