Preventative Dental Care

Dental Exams & X-Rays

To enjoy a healthy, great-looking smile for a lifetime, you need to receive regular dental care and preventative dental services from your family dentist in Woodstock. While brushing and flossing rank as the two most important habits you can perform daily to help protect your teeth from the effects of decay and disease, you need to receive regular dental care from our dentists to enjoy quality oral health.

During your first dental exam, we will take a full set of digital dental X-rays and intra-oral photos that will provide us with a detailed understanding of the current state of your oral health. A thorough comprehensive oral examination and oral cancer screening are then performed. With all the collected detailed information, our dentists can develop a customized dental treatment plan designed to help maintain and improve your oral health.

The oral health is a part of your holistic well being and it could affect the quality of life including physical health and mental health. Research has shown that patients who develop tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss have a significantly higher risk for developing a range of chronic illnesses that include heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and cancer.

Make your oral health a top priority by scheduling your next dental exam and cleaning with the team at Woodstock Smiles today!

Dental Sealants

Our teeth feature a number of grooves and crevices that can be hard to clean with daily brushing. For younger kids who don't have the manual dexterity or attention to detail required to properly brush and floss, these areas can become a breeding ground for the buildup of dental plaque and decay.

With dental sealants, Dr. Nguyen can effectively "seal" these areas of the mouth away from the effects of dental plaque. Using an incredibly thin and tooth colored acrylic coating, Dr. Nguyen can create a barrier on a patient's treated teeth that keeps plaque out, thereby preventing the development of cavities and decay that can permanently damage your child's smile.

Dental sealants offer an incredibly efficient and cost-effective preventative dental service option for keeping a child's smile looking and feeling its best. Ask about dental sealants during your child's next appointment at Woodstock Smiles.

Custom Mouth guard

If you or a family member participates in sports, a custom-made mouth guard from a Woodstock dentist can prevent the type of serious damage that can permanently alter the appearance and health of a smile.

Whether participating in after-school sports or regular pickup games at the local park, a custom mouth guard can offer the protection an athlete needs to keep them in the game. Unlike the boil and bite mouth guard available at most sporting goods stores, a custom mouth guard improves the comfort and fit that can keep you at peak performance.

Do take any risks with your long-term oral health by wearing a mouth guard that provides only minimal protection. Schedule your custom mouth guard consultation today.
