Maintain Your Smile with Preventive Dentistry in Lake Shore East Chicago

Dental prevention is key to protect your smile. We use the latest advances in technology to identify potential dental issues in the early stages. Then, minimally-invasive treatments can be used to achieve the long-term dental health that you desire.

These treatments are important at all stages of life. Children learn oral habits to maintain a healthy smile into adulthood. Life-long preventive dental care is an essential step for overall health and wellness.

Prevention is better than treatment. We strive to help our patients maintain great oral health, minimizing the need for treatment options in the future.

Dental Exam and Cleaning

Good dental health starts with a thorough dental exam and cleaning. Our staff takes the time to answer your questions and identify potential issues that need to be addressed. Visit our office twice a year for a preventive exam and cleaning to protect your smile.

Relax in a comfortable examination room while we use the latest technology to improve your diagnostics and results at your oral exam dental appointment. We integrate digital imagery and patient education into your dental evaluation, giving you an excellent experience from the moment you step in the door.

Occlusal Night Guard

Rest easy at night with a relaxed jaw. TMJ, grinding, and clenching can be treated with an occlusal (night) guard. We offer custom-fit solutions to help with jaw issues, giving you a good night’s sleep free of tension and discomfort. Not only will you avoid the pain of jaw tightness and tension headaches, but a night guard for teeth prevents damage to the teeth and gums.

Oral Cancer Screening

Early diagnosis is the best solution to improve the efficacy of treatments. In addition to checking your teeth and gums, our staff also completes a thorough oral cancer exam of all other areas of the mouth. We look for early signs of abnormal cell growth or irregularities that need to be addressed.

Our hygienists and dentists are trained in the latest techniques for oral cancer screenings, and can identify precursor tissue changes as well as cancer growths. Talk to us if you notice any changes in your mouth or a problem area that isn’t healing.

Periodontal Treatment

In addition to cavity prevention, we also offer the latest treatments to protect your gum health. Periodontal care is essential to reduce the risk of serious gum disease that endangers your teeth. Regular gum examinations will help us determine if additional treatments are needed due to gum infections.

Early-stage treatments are available to eliminate infection-causing plaque near the gum line. We also offer advanced periodontal treatment for later stages of gum disease that lead to gum recession and other serious dental problems with our periodontal specialists.
