At Ford Dental Group, we take exceptional care of your oral health. Below are some of the preventive dental services that our practice provides.
Cleanings, Exams & X-rays (Radiography)
Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair.

Oral Cancer Screening
During your dental visit, Dr. Jonathan Ford can talk to you about your health history and examine you for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer. Regular visits to Ford Dental Group can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.

One of the best ways to keep your gums from bleeding when you come in for a cleaning is to floss regularly. Brushing your teeth before or after flossing is less important than whether you floss or not.

Sealants and Flouride
Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are applied to the top surface of your back teeth—the molars and premolars. Those areas are the hardest to clean and the most prone to tooth decay and plaque buildup, which is why the sealants are applied mostly only to them. Fluoride is a natural mineral that has been proven to strengthen teeth and prevent the incidence of tooth decay. This simple preventive measure of applying a fluoride varnish to the teeth can strengthen teeth at risk for decay and create a tooth surface that is more resistant to decay.

Night Guards/Sport Guards
When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment from an early age. While collision and contact sports, such as boxing, are higher-risk sports for the mouth, you can experience a dental injury in non-contact activities too, such as gymnastics and skating.

The purpose of your TMJ is to allow your mouth to move both up and down and side to side. When it is properly aligned, your teeth meet in their optimal bite position, allowing regular functions such as chewing and speaking to occur properly and without discomfort. Normal TMJ function is essential not only for chewing and speaking, but for overall comfort in your jaw. When your TMJ is misaligned, you may experience headaches, extreme pain in the jaw, and ear or sinus infections. We can identify and treat these alignment issues so that you do not experience additional concerns associated with TMD.
