Preventive Dentistry

Every healthy smile is built on a solid foundation of preventive dental care. That’s why we recommend that you see our dentist in Jacksonville, FL, at least every six months.

During your routine visits, we can help reduce your risk of cavities, gum disease, and other issues that may jeopardize your oral health.

Regardless of your age, Dr. Jacqueline West begins all treatment plans with a focus on preventive dentistry.

Below are some of the preventive dental services we offer at West Dentistry.

Jacksonville Florida Preventive Dentist

Teeth Cleanings and Exams

We recommend that you schedule a teeth cleaning at least every six months. During your visit, we’ll remove plaque and tartar while checking each tooth for potential issues. We may also take X-rays to detect any oral health issues hiding beneath the surface.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride helps to strengthen your tooth enamel, greatly reducing your risk of cavities. Many patients already benefit from fluoride in their drinking water, toothpaste, and mouth rinse. However, a topical treatment at our office offers advanced protection.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a translucent barrier that we apply to the chewing surfaces of your molars. This prevents food particles and bacteria from accumulating on your back teeth. Dr. West can apply sealants in minutes for years of cavity prevention.

Night Guards

Do you grind or clench your teeth at night? If so, ask our Jacksonville dentist if you’re a candidate for a night guard. This appliance cushions the enamel from the forces of bruxism, protecting your smile while you sleep.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Early detection can greatly improve your chances of surviving oral cancer. For this reason, Dr. West recommends that all adults receive oral cancer screenings during their routine checkups.
