Dental Checkups & Cleanings for Northgate & Green Lake
Your Caring Family Dentist
Oak Tree Dental Care has been a longstanding fixture in the Pinney Ridge and Greenwood areas for growing healthy smiles. As a family dentist, we are committed to serving our patient’s needs with comprehensive care to protect and restore oral health. To further our mission to provide healthy smiles that last a lifetime, we offer the preventive dentistry your family needs. Preventive dentistry is the very foundation to oral health, which is why you need to visit your dentist every six months for semi-annual checkups and cleanings. We provide the gentle care you deserve while promoting optimal oral health.
In addition to your home oral hygiene routine, visiting your dentist every 6 months is an essential component to healthy teeth and gums. Through regular dental checkups, you will ensure you develop and maintain a strong, beautiful smile. With regular preventive dentistry, you will reduce the need for expensive and invasive treatments in the future.
During your routine dental checkups, we carefully examine your mouth. In addition to a visual examination, we use x-rays to gain a deeper insight into your oral health because many diseases and cavities are not visible to the naked eye. While performing your examination, we will discuss the results of our findings while also answering your questions and concerns. If a treatment is needed, we will fully explain the procedure to make you feel at ease.
After we have performed your dental exam, we will conduct a professional teeth cleaning. Even with the best oral hygiene habits, you still need to have your teeth cleaned professionally twice a year. Our dental hygienist will remove plaque and tarter accumulations that have been left behind from brushing and flossing. By doing so, we will help to reduce the development of gum disease and tooth decay. After your teeth are cleaned, we will polish them so you walk out of our office with a bright, beautiful smile.
During your routine appointment, we may recommend certain treatments to help ward off potential oral health complications. Often, we recommend fluoride treatments. We apply a fluoride varnish to reduce your risk for tooth decay as fluoride is known as “nature’s cavity fighter.”
In addition to fluoride, we also provide dental sealants. Dental sealants are applied to areas of the teeth that are prone to cavities, such as the molars. The sealants act as a protective barrier to keep plaque and tarter accumulations out of these areas to prevent cavities.
