Prevention Makes Perfect

Like proactive health care, preventive dental care can help you avoid potential problems and keep a healthy smile for decades. At our office in Mooresville, preventive care involves diagnostics, cleaning, sealants, screenings and education to reinforce good dental habits.

Diagnostic Exam

When you come to our office as a new patient, you will receive a comprehensive dental exam. Afterwards, we’ll provide follow-up exams to maintain your oral health. In addition to evaluating the teeth, gums and existing restorations for problems and structural stability, our diagnostic exam includes:

  • Diagnostic radiographs (X-rays) to detect cavities, oral disease, cysts and tumors, and evaluate bone health
  • Periodontal evaluation to examine bone and gum health, evaluate home dental care practices, and assess periodontal needs to maintain optimum oral health
  • Oral cancer screening to evaluate mouth tissue for signs and symptoms of oral cancer, plus offer periodic VELscope exams to detect cancer unseen by the human eye
