Dr. Evans and Dr. Wager understands the importance of routine care, so they prioritize preventive and restorative dentistry for our patients. We encourage healthy patients to come in for checkups, and to allow our skilled hygienists to clean their teeth, every six months. These appointments allow us to find and address problems before they escalate, and they keep your teeth in top condition. Other preventive dentistry services include mouthguards, night guards, and oral cancer screenings. With routine preventive care, your smile can remain bright and healthy for years to come.

Protecting and Restoring Your Smile

Because our doctors recognize the impact dental health can have on your whole body, we place special emphasis on disease prevention. At your checkup, we will perform a thorough exam to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to inflammation, pain, and even tooth loss, so we will monitor your mouth and offer advice to protect your oral health. If you develop gum disease, we may suggest treatment with Perio Protect, an effective, convenient, non-surgical therapy. With regular dental cleanings, you can help strengthen healthy gum tissue and avoid the onset of gum disease. In addition, Dr. Evans and Dr. Wager will offer tips for the treatment and prevention of gum disease.

Our Preventive and Restorative Services

To ensure dental health, you may need restorative dentistry, such as fillings, crowns, or dental implants. These restorative treatments repair damage and rejuvenate a smile.  When a tooth becomes damaged or develops a cavity, you experience an increased risk of infection or abscess. Without treatment, even a simple cavity can soon morph into a problem that may require a root canal or even an extraction. Fortunately, our natural looking dental restorations can protect and repair your teeth.

Before performing any procedure, the doctor will review recommendations with you, explain treatment options, and answer your questions. The more you know, the better you’ll feel about making decisions for the life of your smile. If you have tooth decay, gum disease, or missing teeth, Dr. Evans or Dr. Wager may recommend a number of preventive and restorative treatment options, including:
