The Benefits of Preventive Dentistry

Diagnostics & Exams
With advanced digital imaging technology, we can get a full view of your oral health for superior diagnostics and treatment planning.
Cleaning & Hygiene
Keeping your teeth clean is essential to your continued oral and overall health. Our hygiene team will keep your smile gleaming with gentle, thorough techniques that will leave you feeling refreshed.
Quick, simple, and non-invasive professional fluoride treatments can help remineralize your enamel, boosting your defenses against cavities and decay.
By applying a thin layer of a special resin over your rear teeth, dental sealants form a barrier between your teeth and the bacteria and food particles they feed on to lower the risk of developing decay.
Soft-Tissue Laser Therapy
Cold Sore Therapy
With our soft-tissue laser, we can target specific tissues to precisely treat oral health issues like periodontal disease and cold or canker sores. Laser therapy is less invasive than traditional methods, resulting in faster, more comfortable procedures and shorter recovery times.
Patients with periodontal (gum) disease require a bit of special care. Extra cleanings that go below the gum line can help keep gum disease under control and preserve your oral health, so you can keep smiling.
Oral Cancer Screenings
While relatively rare, oral cancer can pose a serious risk to your health and even your life. During your exam, Dr. Poreddy will keep an eye out for abnormalities or discolorations. If she sees anything concerning, she may recommend taking a biopsy for further analysis.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can cause pain and difficulty in jaw movement, but Dr. Poreddy can offer treatments such as oral appliances and physical therapy to alleviate symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Pediatric Preventive Care
Exams & Hygiene
We welcome patients of all ages! Whether you’re looking for a dental home for your child to receive all of their routine preventive care, or are they are in need of more specialized procedures like tongue or lip tie releases, Dr. Poreddy is here to help little smiles flourish.
