What are the different types of preventive care services?

Some of the many preventive dental care services available at Solomon Family Dentistry include:

Dental cleanings

Scheduling routine professional dental cleanings at least every six months is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Dental providers remove plaque and tartar in difficult-to-reach areas that you might not be able to accomplish with at-home cleanings.

Fluoride treatments

Specialists offer in-office fluoride treatments that reduce your risk of developing cavities. They apply fluoride to the surface of your teeth to offer added protection that’s more significant than fluoride toothpaste alone.


Dental sealants are a specialized dental material that your child’s dentist applies to the grooves of their back molars to reduce the ability of plaque and bacteria to collect in the grooves. That, in turn, lowers the risk of tooth decay.

Mouth rinses

Your dentist may prescribe a mouth rinse that reduces mouth bacteria and your risk of gum disease. If you already have mild to moderate gum disease, medicated mouth rinses help treat the disease.


Mouthguards protect your or your child’s teeth from damage that can occur while playing sports or grinding teeth at night while sleeping. Solomon Family Dentistry offers custom-fitted mouthguards that are comfortable and highly effective. 

What should I expect during my dental visit?

During dental visits, your provider takes dental X-rays if needed, professionally cleans your teeth, offers preventive care services, and examines your teeth and gums. Your dentist can treat cavities, gum disease, and minor tooth damage before such oral health problems turn into something more serious.
