Comprehensive & Preventive Dentistry

Comprehensive and preventive dentistry involve the diagnosis and treatment of general conditions affecting the teeth, gums, and jaw. Dr. Nelson takes a comprehensive approach to dentistry because it enables him to detect problems early and utilize more conservative treatment plans. Early diagnosis also reduces your risk of needing more extensive – and often expensive – treatment in the future.

We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments for adults and teens alike. Straight teeth can give you a more confident and beautiful smile, but did you know that they can help improve your oral health, too? Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss correctly, and a properly aligned bite can alleviate some of the discomfort associated with TMJ disorder (TMD).

Periodontal (Gum) Care

According to the American Academy of Periodontology, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults over the age of 35. If your gums feel tender, look red and swollen, or bleed every time you floss, you could be at risk for gum disease. Untreated gum disease has been linked to other serious health problems, so it�s important to keep your gums healthy with proper home care and biannual professional dental cleanings.

Gum disease used to require surgery more often than not. While surgery is still sometimes the best option, we can now treat many cases with less invasive techniques, including local antibiotics, deep cleanings, and medicated rinses.
