Preventive Dentistry

The American Dental Association recommends you see your dentist and hygienist at least twice each year for a cleaning and exam.  We will inspect your soft tissues for oral cancer, periodontal disease, and other conditions. Dr. Logan will also look at each tooth to assess for tooth decay or cracks, as well as the health of old dental work. Sometimes old dental work wears out and needs to be replaced.

With regular dental hygiene appointments, Lori's professional cleanings will help you maintain optimal oral health by providing thorough examination of the gum structures for any disease or bone loss. Her expertise helps with maintaining your oral health as well as help restore health to gums and bone that may have periodontal disease (gum disease). 

By looking for disease every six months, we can often reduce your potential for large dental problems.  If left untreated, a small cavity can grow to destroy an entire tooth and spread to surrounding teeth. Advanced gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss for American adults and can be prevented. Oral cancer causes more than 8,000 deaths each year. Caught and treated early, these diseases can be controlled.
