Preventive Dentistry In Zanesville Ohio. Dr. Watiker has the knowledge and experience to help.

dental care servicesAn effective preventive program is our office working together with you.  We accomplish this by keeping you from contracting dental diseases.  If you already have one Dr. Watiker will fix the issue from progressing.  The most important part of this process happens at home with regular brushing and flossing. The process continues in our office with the efforts of the dentists and hygienists to make your teeth healthy and beautiful.  A healthy smile needs regular dental exams and cleanings.

On your first visit, we give you a complete dental exam. We give you a full report on what your dental exam has revealed.  Dr. Watiker will develop a detailed dental plan. We then perform that exam at the beginning of every dental check-up. We do not want surprises, only beautiful smiles. Your exam will include:

  • Dental X-Rays: X-rays are a necessary tool for seeing if and where your teeth are decaying, as well as other important factors affecting treatment. This is the most effective way to see into the tooth and its roots.
  • Oral cancer screens: Every check-up includes a full screening for oral cancer.  Dr Watiker will check the gums, lips, tongue and teeth for any sign of cancer. Early detection is the best solution for cure.
  • Gum evaluation: Your gums will be carefully examined for any signs of periodontal disease.  We will ensure you have a thorough check with minimal discomfort.
  • Tooth decay exam: After determining the levels of any decay, we use specialized instruments to check and treat any issues.
  • Full cleaning: Our final step is cleaning.  We remove any hardened plaque.  This is the plaque that brushing and flossing can not remove. Our final step is polishing your teeth.  This is to get rid of any stains from things like coffee.

Brushing your teeth is the best way you can help in your dental care – It is especially important to brush before going to sleep.  This is when your teeth are most vulnerable. Your mouth stops producing saliva when you sleep.  Saliva is what helps breaks down food in your mouth and keeps it from turning into harmful plaque.
