Preventive Care to Keep You Smiling

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and at East Indy Dental Care we focus on routine prevention, early intervention, and minimal treatment. Not only is preventive care more affordable, it also helps our patients keep their mouths free of disease like periodontitis and tooth decay.

Some of the preventive services that we offer include:

Comprehensive Exams

A full examination of all hard and soft oral tissues, bone levels and tooth health allow us to identify areas when they are easily corrected before they destroy your smile or are expensive to fix.

Preventive Cleanings

Professional cleanings remove tartar buildup from above and below the gumlines, making it easier to maintain your oral health and prevent bone loss.

Periodontal AssessmentsWoman Dental Exam

Screening for periodontal disease is an important step in avoiding tooth loss in the future. This quick exam pinpoints areas of early tissue detachment.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Catching oral cancer as early as possible will maximize your chances forĀ a speedy recovery. You don’t have to use tobacco to be at risk for oral cancer!

We recommend that healthy patients see us for a preventive care visit every 6 months. If you have active gum disease or chronic dental problems, we may recommend more frequent visits. Schedule your cleaning and check-up by calling us today.
