Preventive Dentistry in Springfield
Because we know it’s easiest to prevent dental problems from ever happening in the first place, preventive dental therapy is the very backbone of our practice. That’s why Dr. Olson and our team emphasize the importance of regular checkups and cleanings every six months. When you give us the chance to peek inside your mouth to look for early signs of decay and infection, your oral health greatly benefits... and that helps you enjoy strong, healthy teeth for a lifetime.
When it comes to preventive care, our mission is to help you to attain optimal dental health and also to provide guidance to help you maintain your healthiest smile for years to come. We offer a full range of preventive and hygiene services, including the following.
Oral Hygiene Treatments
Good preventive care relies on two thorough cleanings each year, and the goal of this cleaning is to remove plaque and tartar, for cleaner, healthier teeth and fresher breath. Your six month cleaning is performed under the hand of our highly experienced, caring dental hygienist. Lori Sage has plenty of years of skill in her profession, which help her provide the comfort and quality you desire most. We know you (and your smile) will feel completely at ease in Lori’s expert hands!
Did you know that 75 percent of Americans over the age of 35 suffer from gum disease? Prevention of the condition is so easy -- all it takes is excellent care at home and a routine visit to your dentist’s office. During your checkup, we look out for the early warning signs of gum disease, like swollen, red or tender gums.
Patient Education Programs
Solid at-home oral hygiene requires education. When you come in for your six month checkup and cleaning, we can provide more information on how you can better care for your teeth, as well as extra dental services you could benefit from.
At the end of your checkup and cleaning, we can also provide you with a fluoride treatment to strengthen enamel and protect your teeth against harmful bacteria.
Visiting the dentist doesn't have to be a stressful or scary experience, and Dr. Olson and his team firmly believe it shouldn’t be. In fact, we want you to feel so comfortable in our cozy office atmosphere that it seems like you're relaxing in your own home. From the moment you call to schedule your appointment to when you’re walking out of our office with that clean mouth feeling after your checkup and cleaning, we know you’ll have a wonderful experience at Dr. Olson’s office.
