Preventative Dentistry in Kirkland, WA
Dr. Theron Manson believes that most dental problems can be prevented, which is why our Kirkland family practice is big on decay prevention. We’ll show you what we see during your exam, and guide you through ways of preventing issues from developing further.
Preventative Dental Services
Routine teeth cleanings are the first step to avoiding gum disease and tooth decay. Our healthiest patients often require a cleaning at least twice each year…especially if you have a high risk of tooth decay or are wearing braces. If cleanings make your teeth sensitive, we’ll be happy to offer nitrous oxide sedation to ease your mind.
Introducing AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master
Our hygienists at Manson & Chi Dentistry recently completed an AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master training! This technology performs minimally-invasive dental prophylaxis to remove stains, plaque, and tartar in the most gentle and efficient manner. We are very excited to begin using this Swiss technology to cleanse and polish your teeth effectively while keeping you comfortable
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontitis is something we take very seriously. After all, it’s the primary cause of adult tooth loss. During your checkup, we will screen for signs of tissue detachment and bone loss, so that we can intervene as early as symptoms of periodontal disease are present. When necessary, we will recommend scaling and root planing with plenty of numbing to keep you comfortable.
This unique fluoride treatment allows your teeth to remineralize in areas that are showing signs of pre-decay. The slight tacky texture allows varnish to stay put all day long, so that your enamel can soak up the minerals. If necessary, we’ll also prescribe a home gel to use for managing sensitivity or avoiding white spots during orthodontic treatment.
Protective Athletic Mouth Guards
Sporting injuries don’t just break teeth…they can also cause concussions. Wearing a custom fitted mouthguard can help you prevent those risks far more effectively than an over the counter guard. Ask us how!
As your child’s adult molars start to erupt, they are at an increased risk of developing cavities. Protective sealants safeguard the deep grooves and fissures that are often hard to keep clean. They take only a few minutes to place and no numbing or drilling is necessary.
Dental Checkups for Kids
We like to see all children by their first birthday (or when their first tooth erupts.) As a father himself, Dr. Manson understands just how important it is for children to feel comfortable about their dental experience.
Does your child have special needs? Dr. Manson is more than happy to customize our services for whatever your family may need.
