Preventive Dentistry at Union Dental Center
Keep Teeth Bright & Healthy at Any Age
Stop Problems Before They Start with Preventive Dental Care in Havre de Grace
You’ve heard it said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure — but in dentistry, it’s worth a lot more. Left untreated, even small dental problems like cavities or tender gums can grow exponentially more critical, painful, and time consuming…not to mention expensive.
At Union Dental Center, we use high-tech equipment and modern treatments like digital x-rays and computer software to detect and diagnose dental problems at their earliest stages. Working together, we’ll help keep your mouth healthy and make sure you maintain a beautiful smile for life.
Our Preventive Dentistry Services
Dental Cleaning & Exams
You can have healthy teeth and gums for life — it all starts by scheduling twice-a-year dental exams and cleanings.
These regular appointments help you stay in tune with your dental health and allow your dentist to catch potential problems before they develop into something more serious.
It’s the best thing you can do to lower your risk of cavities, gum disease, and other common issues.
If we diagnose gum disease we will develop an ongoing treatment regimen that will include more frequent visits to keep your gums at their optimal health.
Using the latest dental technology, we can catch signs of cavities and other issues invisible to the naked eye before they’ve progressed.
Oral Cancer Screening
Every appointment includes a fast and non-invasive oral cancer screening.
Risk Factor Evaluation
Our dentist always looks for risk factors for conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
TMJ and Bite Analysis
We’ll examine your TMJ joint and bite, looking for symptoms of TMJ disorder or bruxism.
A fluoride treatment may be recommended to maintain the strength of your enamel and reduce your risk of decay and protect your crowns, bridges and fillings from recurrent decay.
At-Home Care Tips
We provide tips and information on how to avoid dental health complications and care for your teeth between appointments.
Your Role in Prevention
Total dental health can only be achieved when you work together with your dentist — it’s a partnership! The importance of scheduling regular dental cleanings and maintaining a good oral hygiene routine at home cannot be overstated. We will recommend the best modern instruments to use at home which will make our partnership an on-going success.
“Just had my teeth worked on and I feel very confident with my new smile. Great energy, patience and not the usual dental experience. I totally recommend Union Dental Center if you are looking for a new dentist.”
