Professional Preventative and Periodontal Care

By scheduling routine visits to Valley Dental every 6 months, you can keep your smile healthy and prevent the need for extensive procedures. During your visit, we will perform a professional examination and routine cleaning to remove plaque from hard-to-reach areas for both adults and children.
These visits also allow Dr. Matthew Eaton and Meghan Smith to diagnose problems at their earliest stages, aided by digital radiography to increase accuracy. When we spot the early signs of tooth decay, we can provide added layers of protection in the form of dental sealants and topical fluoride treatments. Particularly suited to children, these tools can ward against further tooth decay and strengthen teeth.

Preventative Dentistry Treatments to Safeguard Your Family’s Oral Health

Patients can reduce the risk of developing serious dental issues requiring extensive and invasive treatments if they receive regular care. With our comprehensive preventative dentistry services, Dr. Meghan Smith and Dr. Matthew Eaton in Fargo, ND, can help patients maintain optimum oral health.
If you are looking for a warm, family-friendly dental office, our dentists and staff at Valley Dental will be happy to help you achieve your goals.

The Importance of Maintaining Your Oral Health

Oral health complications, such as cavities, gingivitis, or missing teeth, can lead to more serious problems than just aesthetic concerns. A patient’s overall health can be affected if dental issues are left untreated for extended periods of time. However, with proper care and preventative dental measures, we can take the necessary steps to detect and treat gingivitis, oral cancer, and periodontal disease in the earliest stages.
Dental issues such as cavities or a missing tooth do not just result in an undesirable smile but can also lead to the onset of other health concerns such as jawbone atrophy.

Our Comprehensive Oral Exams

Diagnosing oral cancer and preventing jawbone deterioration are two major issues that can be addressed through regular dental exams. These issues can go undetected for extended periods of time unless a proper diagnostic test or thorough examination is conducted. During your visit to our office, we will provide a comprehensive exam of your teeth and gums.
First, we will evaluate your overall health using our state-of-the-art Planmeca 3D and 2D imaging system. The screening allows us to examine the inner structures of your teeth and jawbone and detect any warning signs of oral cancer and disease.

Eliminating Bacteria With a Professional Cleaning

Clean teeth are crucial for patients of all ages to maintain their oral health. Improper cleaning can cause plaque and tartar to build up between your teeth and gums. The bacteria can begin to eat away at your tooth enamel, leading to decay.
Some of these areas can be difficult to clean at home, but with our in-depth teeth cleaning we can effectively reduce or eliminate the plaque from your teeth and gumline. We may also recommend dental sealants or a topical fluoride treatment. These treatments can help prevent bacteria from forming on your teeth surface and inside the small crevices along the chewing surfaces of your molars.

Good oral hygiene is the most effective method of protecting your smile from cavities, gum disease, and more serious dental concerns.
Our staff at Valley Dental will provide you with the very best comprehensive preventative treatments, in addition to offering tips and techniques that you can use at home. If you are new to the area or are looking for a warm, welcoming dental office for you and your family, contact us to set up your appointment.

Periodontal Care

Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to a range of oral health issues, from tissue inflammation to widespread tooth loss. If we diagnose you with a moderate case of gum disease, we can perform a deep cleaning to restore your periodontal health.
During a deep cleaning (or scaling and root planing procedure), your dentist will carefully remove plaque from the surfaces of teeth above and below the gum line. Next, he or she will smooth any rough spots on dental roots where bacteria can gather before treating any pockets of bacteria with an antibiotic.
For more advanced cases of gum disease, we also offer laser treatments. Patients can reduce the risk of developing serious dental issues requiring extensive and invasive treatments if they receive regular care.
With our comprehensive preventative dentistry services, Dr. Megan Smith and Dr. Matthew Eaton in Fargo, ND, can help patients maintain optimum oral health.
