Preventative Care

The doctors at Edgerton and Fisher Dentistry feel regular preventative care helps you attain and maintain optimal oral health. From advanced diagnostic procedures to cleanings, Dr. Edgerton and Dr. Fisher provide preventive care for your entire family. The technology we embrace makes sure that we can catch and treat many issues before they ever develop into true problems for your health.

  • IntraOral Camera – Using a pen-sized camera, we take video of your teeth and project the live image onto a television screen in the treatment room. This image is magnified, allowing us to better see and detect any decay, cracked or leaking fillings or other problems.
  • Digital X-Rays – With a digital x-ray, we take a picture of your teeth. We can almost immediately see it on a computer monitor. This large, color-enhanced image lets us get a better picture of your oral health, allowing for earlier treatment.

Preventative care can take many forms. The best way to ensure that you don’t wind up with dental problems is to get your teeth cleaned by a professional dentist every six months. While we highly recommend brushing and flossing at least twice daily and after meals, a cleaning from a dental hygienest is your best bet to fight tooth decay. Avoid extra hassles. Limit your time at the dentist. Be proactive when it comes to your dental health. Learn how to further fight cavities here.
