What is preventive dentistry?

While we strive to treat all tooth decay and damage with great skill and compassion, our goal is to prevent serious dental conditions from occurring. The more you do to take care of your smile before you experience problems, the fewer issues are likely to show up in the future. We provide a number of preventive treatments to help us achieve this goal. These services include:

  • Detailed instructions about good oral hygiene at home, including proper brushing and flossing
  • Techniques and recommended dental products
  • Tips for maintaining a healthy, balanced diet
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Routine dental cleanings and dental exams
  • Comprehensive dental X-rays
  • Oral cancer and gum disease screenings

Our caring dental team is passionate about taking care of your smile, and we want to help you love it as much as we do. We take the time to listen to you and all you have to say. We hope that when you visit our office, you feel comfortable voicing your questions and concerns. With Dr. Brian Homann leading the way, we will work together with you to provide a unified front against tooth decay.

What should you expect?

When it comes to preventive dentistry, there are a few things you can expect to experience. All of your check-up appointments will typically consist of a dental cleaning, along with a visual examination of your mouth to check for any developing problems. This includes an oral cancer screening that looks for any changes that have taken place since your last visit. The earlier a tooth-related problem is identified, the easier and less expensive it will be to fix. In addition to your regular cleaning and examination, we will perform x-rays on a regular basis to help identify cavities in their early stages, so they are much easier to fix with simple fillings rather than having to resort to more extensive treatment options.

How often should you visit?

The biggest question individuals have about preventive dentistry is how often they should visit the dentist for proper care. For most patients, we recommend coming in every six months to get your regular cleanings. At this point, we will determine how often you should have x-rays done to monitor the overall health of your teeth and the supporting bone structure. However, if you are currently going through dental problems, such as gingivitis or periodontal disease, you may need to have more frequent appointments to keep your overall oral health in good condition.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
