Preventative Dentistry Services

Dental checkups allow us to discover small problems before they become bigger problems. Regular dental cleanings can keep your teeth looking great. If you are still not happy with the color of your teeth after a professional cleaning, we can advise you about teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry treatments.

We treat patients of all ages, aiming for a positive and stress-free experience at the dentist’s office. We offer professional cleaning examinations and treatments to protect the teeth of patients of all ages. Sealants are great for kids and adults, in order to prevent cavities in the future. Sealants are a bio-friendly, clear coating that is painted onto the teeth to protect the deep molar grooves from cavities. Plaque and tartar can build up in these grooves, making kids more susceptible to cavities.

How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?

It is recommended that you visit the dentist at least once every six months for a regular cleaning and examination. Preventative dentistry is an important part of maintaining a healthy smile. The Knoxville general dentistry specialists at Family Dentistry of Knoxville will provide you with the preventative care you need.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a natural mineral that works to fight off bad bacteria that can lead to tooth decay and cavities. If someone has "chalky white spots on their teeth", it may not be cavities yet. Fluoride treatments can help to re-mineralize the teeth and strengthen them to combat cavities from occurring. It also helps to do fluoride trays at night time as well as using prescription-strength fluoride toothpaste for patients who are more cavity-prone.

Additionally, there are numerous benefits to using fluoride treatments to improve the teeth and overall oral health for both you and your children, including:

  • helps to protect prior restoration in the mouth
  • strengthens the tooth enamel
  • most-effective treatment for high-risk patients prone to decay and other common oral infections
