Preventive Dentistry

When it comes to your oral health, prevention is key. That is why at Woodsboro Dental we focus on preventive dentistry care for all of our patients who come to our dental office in Frederick County, MD. Regular dental exams and professional, preventive dental cleanings can help stop problems before they start, keeping your mouth looking and feeling healthy while sparing you the costly and uncomfortable dental work down the road!

Regular preventive visits can mean the difference between keeping your smile for life and being fitted for dentures later on. The standards of brushing three times a day and flossing at least once remain an important part of your oral health, but biannual professional cleanings are also necessary to remove stuck on tartar when your regular hygiene routine isn’t enough. Over time, plaque hardens into dental calculus (commonly referred to as “tartar”), which can only be removed during a professional cleaning. If left untreated, this build-up can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. For children’s appointments, we can even provide fluoride treatments or dental sealants to help defend and strengthen their developing teeth.

Digital X-Rays

Our dental exams utilize state-of-the-art digital imaging to help us detect and prevent gum disease, tooth decay and other oral health concerns. Similar to traditional X-rays, digital scans allow our dentists to evaluate patients’ dentition to assist in planning ongoing treatment. Unlike traditional X-rays, digital scans expose patients to 90% less radiation and are immediately available for view on our screens.

Dental Hygiene & Cleanings

In addition to cleanings and dental exams, we will screen for periodontal disease, TMJ dysfunction, bruxism and other dental issues during your six month checkup.
