Routine preventive care is the cornerstone of maintaining good oral health and plays a pivotal role in maintaining your beautiful smile. Our dentists and team are committed to ensuring that each visit to Chestnut Family Dentistry goes beyond the surface, addressing both the immediate and long-term health of your teeth and gums.

Among the most important services Dr. Wendy Willoughby, Dr. Teresa Bare and our team provide are dental cleanings and exams. Frequent dental cleanings and exams are indispensable for preserving excellent oral hygiene. By preventing cavities, gum ailments and detecting issues before they escalate, these routine visits actively contribute to the longevity of your smile. Our recommendation is to schedule appointments every six months; however, if your circumstances demand, we will recommend more frequent visits and create a schedule and treatment plan suited to your needs.

When you receive this preventive care, our adept dental team will execute a series of essential steps:

  1. Thorough Cleaning: Plaque and tartar buildup, known as dental calculus, are skillfully removed to avert tooth decay and gum issues. This meticulous cleaning not only helps preserve your teeth but also contributes to your overall wellbeing.
  2. Flossing and Polishing: Achieving that captivating smile is integral. We meticulously floss and polish your teeth, enhancing their appearance while promoting a state of optimal health.
  3. Comprehensive Examination: Our dentists will perform a comprehensive assessment of your oral condition. This exam assists in identifying potential dental problems or diseases at an early stage, thus enabling timely intervention.

Dental X-rays will be taken as needed to provide an in-depth evaluation of your oral health, aiding us in devising an accurate treatment plan that aligns with your specific needs. We may also recommend additional preventive treatments, such as dental sealants, if needed.

We are pleased to use Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) rather than traditional cleaning methods. By using GBT to provide your care, our dentists and team can ensure a more thorough and effective cleaning as well as a more comfortable and gentle overall experience for you.

We encourage you to reach out to us as soon as possible should you encounter a dental emergency, experience discomfort or sustain an injury. We are here to support you in every dental aspect.
