Preventative Dentistry

Preventative

At Plaza 125 Dental, one of our most important objectives is to help you maintain the long-term health of your smile and to prevent disease before it happens. With regular preventative care, you can preserve the health of your mouth, and this contributes greatly to your overall health.

We conduct thorough in-office examinations and digital X-rays to identify any current dental issues, determine your personal risk factors, and detect the earliest stages of disease. We monitor the health of your gums to watch for any signs of periodontal disease (commonly known as gum disease). Treating a minor issue now can often prevent major long-term issues from developing down the road. This keeps you healthier, and it can also save you time and money in the long run.

We provide comprehensive in-office cleanings, and we work with you to make sure that your at-home care plan is keeping you healthy. Dr. Sype also enjoys teaching children about the importance of brushing and flossing.

Some patients can benefit from the use of a custom night guard. Over time, grinding your teeth at night will damage your teeth. It also can cause headaches and jaw pain. Often times, a night guard is a simple solution that provides immediate relief to patients. During your examination, we will look for signs that indicate if you are grinding. If you are aware or suspect that you are, please let us know.
