Preventive Dentistry

New Horizon Institute

Preventive and maintenance dentistry are key components to making sure your smile stays healthy and strong for life. Too often, the costs of these services can prevent individuals from receiving this critical care.  At New Horizon Institute, we offer preventive services for a fraction of private practice costs, making maintenance a possibility for everyone.

Why Is Preventative Dental Care Important?

The two main causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease. The goal of preventative and maintenance dental care is to help you stay on top of your oral health to prevent the need for more complex (and costly) dental procedures down the line.

Through these types of services, we can address various types of dental needs as they arise, which will help prevent further damage to your teeth, gums, and bone.

What to Expect During Your Appointment

If you book an appointment with us, the first thing we need to do is assess the current state of your oral health. We’ll evaluate your teeth and gums to identify any issues that require our intervention and discuss appropriate treatment plan options based on the condition of your teeth and gums.

The Benefits of Preventative Dentistry

  • Identify cavities before they reach the nerve of the tooth

  • Learn helpful tips and tricks for better at-home care

  • Prevent serious dental conditions and pain from developing

What Are My Treatment Options?

You and your dentist will establish a treatment plan based on your comprehensive exam to ensure your concerns have been addressed. At New Horizon Institute, we offer a variety of treatment options to help you achieve the smile of your dreams, including:

Dental hygiene

Cleaning and Hygiene

Even with a perfect brushing technique, floss, and mouthwash, you still might not be able to get into every nook and cranny in your mouth. That's where our cleaning and hygiene visits come in. Our team is trained to buff and polish your smile to keep it healthy, clean, and strong.

Digital X-ray

Digital X-Rays

Some dental issues aren’t visible to the naked eye, but we can spot them all in due time with a digital x-ray. Our team will review these records to get a better understanding of any underlying issues, then craft a tailored treatment plan accordingly.

Dental appointment

Fluoride treatments

Fluoride treatments significantly reduce the risks of cavities and keep your teeth healthy for a strong smile that combats sugar bugs and protects your enamel.

Dental appointment

Dental sealants

Dental sealants protect your teeth from cavities down the line, and won’t require drilling or more invasive procedures.

Dental appointment

Periodontal care

The health of your gums is just as important as the health of your teeth. Our periodontal care services can reduce inflammation and prevent much more serious conditions down the line.

Dental appointment

Oral cancer screenings

Any signs of oral cancer growth can be spotted by your dentist, so it's important to get in touch and schedule a screening. Thanks to exams and x-rays, our team can keep you safe and cancer-free.

Night guards

Night guards

If you grind or clench your teeth, a well-fitted night guard can help keep your teeth from further wear and tear, all while keeping painful jaw tension at bay.
