KEEPING A STEP AHEAD

ORAL HEALTH MAINTENANCE

Tidewater Dental knows that keeping patients free of expensive and time consuming dental treatments down the road begins with proper education, hygiene, and routine checkups.  Preventative dentistry is certainly the foundation of oral health and the best way of maintaining a beautiful smile over a lifetime.  We make routine care easy in order to prevent more costly and invasive procedures down the road. 

Comprehensive Exams

Regular, full mouth exams by Dr. Stelmach are the first step to staying on top of your oral health and resolving problems before they can become larger ones.

Routine Dental Cleanings

Utilizing at-home hygiene and attending regular dental cleaning appointments are critical tools to preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

Routine X-Rays

Our advanced digital radiographs will help detect dental problems at their earliest stages while optimally minimizing the degree of radiation exposure.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer detection (head and neck cancer screenings) are included in each comprehensive exam provided by Dr. Stelmach.

THE HALLMARKS OF PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY

A NEW PARADIGM OF DENTAL MEDICINE

Scientific studies are continuing to affirm that preventing future problems is a far better approach to dental healthcare management than fixing existing ones.  The practice of conservative dentistry advocates both prevention and the least invasive dental procedures in an effort to defend natural tooth structure to the greatest extent possible. 

At Tidewater Dental Arts, we strongly advocate the latest advancements in conservative and preventative dentistry.  It is for this reason that with each dental checkup we ensure our patients receive a complete and thorough evaluation of their teeth, gums, and jaw.  In additional, we provide each patient with the knowledge and tools to ensure proper at-home maintenance to prevent problems moving forward.
