Why Choose Newport Dental Associates for Preventive Dentistry?

Dental Checkups
& Teeth Cleanings

The American Dental Association recommends getting routine checkups and cleanings every six months to keep your teeth and gums healthy. During these appointments, we’ll collect X-rays of your mouth and conduct a thorough examination in search of any signs of oral health issues like cavities. If we notice any problem areas, we’ll discuss them with you and develop a treatment plan to take care of them and keep them from getting any worse. Finally, we’ll finish off your appointment by professionally cleaning and polishing your teeth, leaving your smile feeling refreshed and healthy.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that’s created by rocks. It can be found in a variety of items, including everything from the air you breathe to fresh fruits and vegetables. It’s also added to water sources and oral hygiene products to help strengthen enamel and prevent cavities from forming. If you aren’t receiving enough of this mineral, it could put you at a higher risk of dental decay. To keep your teeth healthy and cavity-free, we offer a quick, painless, and simple fluoride treatment to mineralize and strengthen your enamel.

Oral Cancer Screenings

During each of your checkups and cleanings, we’ll also conduct an oral cancer screening. It only takes a couple of minutes but could potentially save your life. Dr. Baldelli will palpate your throat and visually examine your oral cavity and lips in search of any common signs of the disease. If we spot anything that’s suspicious, we’ll refer you for additional testing just to be safe.
