Preventative dentistry is the practice of helping you maintain good oral hygiene through in-office and at-home procedures. Good oral hygiene not only means a healthy mouth it also means you can prevent potential dental concerns in the future. We work hard to help you and your family maintain the health of your teeth and gums. 


Dental Cleaning and Exams

At Thayer Dental Care, our dentist, Dr. Patel, recommends that his patients and their families visit Thayer Dental Care every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. A dental cleaning, a part of preventative dentistry, is recommended because during the six months when you do not visit the dentist, dental decay can build up on your teeth making your teeth susceptible to a number of dental concerns. At Thayer Dental Care, we help remove dental debris and decay from your teeth. 

The second part is the dental exam. A dental exam is performed by Dr. Patel. After the dental cleaning, Dr. Patel will perform the dental exam by reviewing the health of your teeth. He will look for dental concerns and recommend restorative dentistry if needed. A dental exam is recommended every six months to keep your teeth healthy and free of dental concerns. 


Restorative Dentistry

Another part of general dentistry is restorative dentistry. In this type of dentistry, Dr. Patel will help you renew your smile from dental concerns such as decay on the teeth or gums. Restorative dentistry can help repair your smile with procedures such as dental crowns, dental fillings, dental bridges, dental implants and more. If you have one or more dental concerns or a toothache, call Thayer Dental Care today for a consultation. 


Cosmetic Dentistry

Brighten your smile with cosmetic dentistry from Thayer Dental Care. At Thayer Dental Care we offer cosmetic dentistry as a part of general dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry can brighten or enlarge the appearance of your smile. A few cosmetic dentistry options we offer include teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental implants and more.
