At Davis Dental Practice, we take exceptional care of your oral health. Below are some of the preventive dental services that our practice provides.
Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair.
X-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Detecting issues with x-rays before they become problematic can save you money in the long run. Early detection can help prevent the need for more extensive, expensive procedures or surgeries.
During your dental visit, Our doctors can talk to you about your health history and examine you for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer. Regular visits to Davis Dental Practice can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.
One of the best ways to keep your gums from bleeding when you come in for a cleaning is to floss regularly. Brushing your teeth before or after flossing is less important than whether you floss or not.
You may be grinding or clenching your teeth and not even know it. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is very common but it can lead to serious dental damage.

A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.
