Dental Cleanings And Exams

Getting routine dental cleanings and exams at least twice per year will keep your mouth healthy and free of decay. Dental exams help us identify existing problems and potential problems early, so treatment can stop any tooth decay or gum disease in its tracks.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent dental cavities and can repair teeth in the very early stages of decay. Professional fluoride treatments (in a solution, gel, foam, or varnish) at our office are a preventive measure if you’re at higher risk of cavities.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants provide a thin barrier against tooth decay and can be done during your regular dental cleaning. The sealant is painted on and bonds quickly, filling the grooves of your teeth’s chewing surfaces.


We make athletic mouthguards to protect your teeth while you stay active. We also make mouthguards for bruxism (teeth grinding). Both kinds of mouthguards are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, providing the best protection.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutrition is a very important part of maintaining oral health. Nutritional advice from Dr. Patel will give you another way to keep your mouth and body healthy.

Oral Care Advice

During your checkup, we can recommend a toothbrush that is the right size and shape for your mouth to reach the places you may not have been brushing or flossing properly. We can also teach children about proper brushing and flossing to establish great oral hygiene habits early in life.
