General & Preventive Care

A healthy mouth is the key to a beautiful smile.
Oral hygiene does more than keep your teeth clean and shiny. It’s essential for your overall health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection and more.

Yorkshire Dentistry Office AreaOngoing general dental care is the foundation for good oral health. That’s why the American Dental Association recommends a checkup every six months.

At Yorkshire Dentistry, checkups include a dental exam, teeth cleaning, x-rays and the use of other processes to uncover, prevent and treat problems in the earliest stages.

Our talented and friendly team performs all general and preventative care procedures in a comfortable and welcoming environment. We’ll make sure your individual needs and concerns are addressed and that you have a good understanding of each procedure.

Routine Cleanings
Routine cleanings remove stains, plaque and tartar, thus preventing cavities, gingivitis and gum disease.

Yorkshire Dentistry specializes in a variety of dental cleaning procedures, from polishing to fluoride treatments.  We also offer a number of cosmetic solutions beyond general and preventative care.

Fluoride Applications
We provide topical fluoride applications to strengthen tooth enamel and reduce the chance of tooth decay.

Fluoride treatments are recommended for children and adolescents, patients with extensive dental restorations and patients with receded gums who are at high risk for tooth decay.

Sealants
A sealant is a plastic material put on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to reduce tooth decay. This protective coating can help prevent decay-causing bacteria from penetrating the tooth.

Sealants are purely preventative. Our dentists will determine if your teeth will benefit from sealants and will recommend them if needed. It’s a painless procedure that can prevent the need for a more costly and invasive restorative procedure in the future.

Space Maintainers
Children often need space maintainers when a baby tooth is lost before the permanent tooth is ready to come in. The space maintainer keeps the adjacent teeth in position, allowing the permanent tooth to grow in correctly.

At Yorkshire Dentistry, we’re dedicated to ensuring your complete satisfaction. After all, your beautiful smile is our job.
