At Konikoff Family Dentistry, we focus on a preventive approach to dental care, to help you and your family maintain healthy, beautiful smiles throughout your lives. With periodic visits to our Norfolk dentist office, we can prevent the onset and progress of oral health problems. Our comprehensive preventive program includes professional teeth cleanings, examinations, protective treatments and oral cancer screenings.
The goal of preventive care is to preserve your natural teeth by stopping problems before they start and diagnosing conditions early on when they are easiest to treat. Your at-home oral hygiene routine is a fundamental component of maintaining excellent oral health. Twice daily brushing and flossing combat the detrimental effects of plaque, protecting your teeth against cavities and gum disease. Part of a complete, effective oral hygiene regimen involves periodic professional teeth cleanings. A teeth cleaning allows our dentist to remove plaque and tartar from difficult to reach spots and to guide you on better techniques for your at-home care routine. We strive to teach our pediatric patients the importance and responsibility of oral hygiene, by making checkups informative and engaging. We also provide our pediatric patients with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children. As part of your or your child’s periodic visit to our Norfolk dentist office, our dentist will examine the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of diagnostic films, as needed. Early detection and intervention allow us to provide you with the most straightforward and effective course of treatment.
With state-of-the-art technology and treatment methods, our Norfolk dentist office provides advanced solutions to all your dental healthcare needs. At Konikoff Family Dentistry, we make dental checkups easy and stress-free for you and your family. To schedule a checkup or to learn more about preventive care, call us today.
