At Dodson Brothers Dentistry, we focus on a preventive approach to helping you and your family maintain excellent oral health. Visiting our Kihei dentist office for periodic teeth cleanings and dental examinations helps prevent problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Our goal is to keep your and your family’s teeth healthy from the start, and to diagnose adverse conditions from the outset, when they are typically the easiest to treat.
Preventive care begins at home, with brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods. These steps protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, which is a sticky film that continuously accumulates in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria. In addition to your daily oral hygiene practices, it is important to visit our Kihei dentist office for periodic checkups and professional teeth cleanings. Sometimes, plaque can hide out in spots that are too difficult for your toothbrush to reach, and can only be removed with the care of a professional. Our team strives to make your teeth cleaning informative and engaging, guiding you on better practices for your home-care routine. For our pediatric patients, whose lifestyle and dietary habits make them especially susceptible to cavities, we provide extra protection with dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Our goal is to keep your child’s smile cavity-free from the start and to instill healthy habits that will last a lifetime. A preventive visit is not complete without a thorough examination of your or your child’s teeth, gums, jaws and surrounding anatomy. With early detection and intervention, our dentist can provide the most straightforward and effective course of care as your child grows.
Periodic visits to our Kihei dentist office are an important part of a complete and effective oral hygiene regimen. At Dodson Brothers Dentistry, we provide state-of-the-art preventive care for you and your family. To schedule a professional teeth cleaning and examination, call today.
