At Dodson Brothers Dentistry we emphasize the importance of preventive care as the best way to maintain optimal oral health. Regular dental checkups and professional cleanings at our Lahaina dental office plus an effective oral hygiene regimen at home are the best steps you can take to enjoy optimal oral health.
During every checkup visit at our Lahaina dental office, patients receive a comprehensive exam to assess the health of their teeth, gums, jaws and all of the areas in and around the oral cavity. This includes a screening to detect any unusual tissue changes that may indicate the presence of conditions other than cavities or gum disease, which are harmful to your oral health and overall well being. A thorough professional dental cleaning to remove the plaque or tartar that your toothbrush has not reached follows every exam. Since the plaque harbors the bacteria that are responsible for the development of cavities and gum disease, it is important that it is removed from between the teeth and gums. Our dentist will also review appropriate brushing and flossing techniques with you to ensure you are doing them correctly at home. Our younger patients benefit from fluoride treatments and sealants on their permanent teeth. We also discuss the dietary implications of sugary, sticky foods and make recommendations on healthy eating patterns. This is especially important for our pediatric patients. We want them to develop good oral health habits early on in life to prevent dental decay down the road.
At our Lahaina dental office, we offer a wide spectrum of dental services designed to meet the needs of every member of your family. Our mission is to provide excellent care in a gentle manner to protect the health of your teeth and put a bright smile on your face. Whatever your dental needs may be, you can count on Dodson Brothers Dentistry for the highest quality of care.
