Preventative Dentistry

Caring for your smile begins with preventative dentistry. At Trillium Dental, we care about your complete health and wellness, and that means offering our patients both traditional and advanced dental procedures for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. The techniques used by our dentists, provide you with different options for enhancing your smile. Preventative dentistry covers several routine dental services, such as exams , gum disease treatments, cleanings, fillings, sealants, and oral cancer screenings. Our dentists perform all treatments right in our Lansing dental office, offering you the convenience of having virtually all of your dental needs met in one location.

At Trillium Dental, our primary goal is simple: to prevent your need for extensive restorative or cosmetic dental procedures.

Through regular maintenance, our Lansing family dentists can help you prevent poor oral health due to decay and disease — problems that can negatively affect your overall health and well-being. Maintaining good oral hygiene remains one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth and gums help you to not only look and feel good, but they allow you to eat and speak properly.

Our caring and professional staff stresses daily preventative care — such as proper brushing and flossing — to prevent more serious problems from developing. Between regular visits, there are simple steps you can take to greatly decrease your risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental or medical problems.

The best way to prevent excessive plaque buildup is to schedule a professional cleaning with a dentist or dental hygienist every six months. Plaque that is left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. A routine dental cleaning lasts about one hour and will usually include scaling and polishing.

Our professional cleanings will help you to preserve your teeth and gums. While having a cavity filled may seem uncomfortable, compared to root canal therapy or tooth extractions, it is much less painful. If you have not scheduled your next professional cleaning, contact us today and avoid the cost and discomfort of extensive dental restorations.
