Why Choose Wolfe Dental for Preventive Dentistry?
Delta Dental, Aetna,
& Many More!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning to ensure the health of your teeth and gums. During these appointments, Dr. Wolfe and his staff will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth and take X-rays of the structures that lie below your gums. If we spot any signs of oral health problems, we’ll work together to choose the best treatment plan for you. We’ll finish your appointment with a thorough dental cleaning. Using special gadgets like a dental scaler and polisher, we’ll clear all plaque and tartar from your teeth and leave your smile bright and refreshed.
Fluoride is a natural mineral created by rocks. It can be found in water, the air, and even fresh fruits and vegetables that you eat. Once consumed, it attaches to your teeth to strengthen your enamel, which is the outermost protective layer of your pearly whites, and without enough of it, you may be at a higher risk of developing cavities. We offer quick, painless, and effective fluoride treatments to make sure that your enamel has all of the minerals it needs to protect your pearly whites from harmful oral bacteria.
Oral Cancer Screenings
At each of your checkups and cleanings, Dr. Wolfe will also conduct an oral cancer screening. This deadly disease can progress quickly, which is why it’s important to spot it in its earliest stages. We’ll examine your lips, oral tissues, and throat in search of any signs of the condition, such as red and white rough patches in the mouth. If we do spot anything out-of-the-ordinary, we’ll let you know and refer you to a specialist for further testing.
