Preventative Dentistry in High Point, NC

Prevent Cavities & Gum Disease with Regular Dental Visits

At our office, we emphasize dental care and proactive oral health treatment for families. Our goal is to help you keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy, whether you are a young child or a retiree. Years of research have proven that an attractive smile is the result of diligent dental care and regular checkups, both of which are essential to monitoring and maintaining your oral health.

When you make an appointment for a routine dental exam at our office we will do everything we can to help you prevent cavities and gum disease. From in-office dental cleanings to instructions and products for excellent home care, we’ve got you covered! Like most dental experts, we recommend twice-annual dental checkups. If it’s been longer than that since you’ve seen a dentist, please call us to make an appointment as soon as possible.

Diligent At-Home Care for Your Teeth and Gums

Cavities and gum disease are caused by germs, usually bacteria that thrive on sugars. Removing the bacteria with proper tooth brushing, flossing, and a healthy diet can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. You can do your part by performing twice-daily brushing and flossing. Any time you visit our office, you’ll leave with instructions for improving the way you care for your teeth at home. Helping you take the best care of your teeth is integral to our practice.

Routine Checkups Keep Your Teeth Healthy

Regular bi-annual dental cleanings and exams are important components of preventive care. When you come to us for your scheduled checkup, our hygienists will perform a detailed, comprehensive cleaning, and Dr. Stanfield will check your teeth and gums for any potential problems.

During these appointments, topical fluoride gels and varnishes may be applied to teeth to aid in preventing cavities. We also recommend dental sealants for many of our younger patients. Sealants are coatings applied to teeth in order to fill deep pits and grooves. They are effective in preventing cavities for several years along with good at home care.

Dr. Stanfield is a dentist who values preventive dental care and treatment. Please call us today at 336-884-8989 to ask questions or schedule an appointment. We are conveniently located in in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina
