Preventive Dental Care Services

Here at High Country Family Dentistry, we provide various preventive dental care procedures, including:

Dental Exams

Dr. Ryan Tuinstra strongly recommends undergoing a dental exam at least once every six months. It will allow us to monitor your oral health closely and identify problems early so preventive steps can be taken to address the problem before it’s too late.

Oral Hygiene Guidance

When you start practicing good oral hygiene, you can retain your teeth and gums for the rest of your life. A healthy oral cavity can better fight various threats. Our team can give you the oral hygiene guidance you need to keep your smile looking its best for many years to come. 

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is a chronic problem that develops due to poor oral health. The decay can be prevented by brushing, flossing, and seeing your dentist regularly. 

Scaling and Cleaning

As much as we promote healthy oral habits, some situations will make brushing some areas of your mouth extremely challenging. When the plaque accumulations harden into tartar, Dr. Ryan Tuinstra provides scaling and cleaning procedures as part of our preventative dental services. Scaling includes the removal of tartar deposits from beneath the gum line. Professional cleaning of your teeth will help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Children’s Dentistry

We recommend that your child undergo their first dental appointment after their third birthday. This enables us to evaluate their oral structures and extend preventive treatments like fluoride and sealant applications. It will also help your child to become familiar with our practice and team. We can provide you with the tools necessary to promote good oral habits in your child.
