The Impact of a
Healthy Smile

Comprehensive dental care ensures functionality, confidence, and health at any age. Proper dental care in childhood establishes a strong foundation for healthy permanent teeth, preventing early tooth decay and malocclusion. Adolescents and adults must maintain diligent oral hygiene to prevent cavities and gum disease, which can contribute to systemic conditions like heart disease and diabetes if untreated. For seniors, oral health is crucial for proper chewing and digestion, impacting nutrition and quality of life.

The Appointment: Exam, Cleaning, & Patient Education

During a routine exam and cleaning, several well-coordinated steps are taken to achieve a healthy smile. The exam begins with reviewing your dental and medical history, providing important context for your care. Diagnostic procedures, like digital X-Rays, may be performed to assess your oral health comprehensively.

Then, a dental hygienist thoroughly cleans your teeth, removing plaque and tartar buildup to prevent decay and gum disease. Specialized instruments are used to clean your teeth above and below the gumline. 

Afterwards, Dr. Yee examines your teeth, gums, and mouth for potential issues, such as cavities or gum disease. Patient education is also provided, offering personalized advice on oral hygiene practices, diet, and lifestyle choices to empower patients to maintain optimal oral health between visits.

General Dentistry Service Add-Ons

Our caring team is dedicated to meeting your unique needs every step of the way–including additional services designed to prevent cavities and detect life-changing oral health conditions.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment strengthens tooth enamel, prevents cavities, and repairs minor decay. It acts as a protective barrier against acid and bacteria, reducing the risk of tooth decay. With regular fluoride treatments, patients of all ages can enjoy a stronger smile and fewer dental problems.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a proactive treatment to prevent tooth decay on the back teeth. These thin, plastic sealants are applied to molars and premolars, creating a smooth and protective barrier over natural pits and fissures prone to plaque buildup. Sealants provide long-lasting cavity protection with a quick, painless, and non-invasive process and are an excellent choice for patients of all ages who want to maintain a healthy smile.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer screenings are essential during dental visits and can be life-saving. Dr. Yee thoroughly examines your mouth for signs of precancerous conditions or cancerous lesions, checking the lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any unusual activity. Early detection significantly increases treatment success rates and prevents progression to advanced stages.
