Preventive Dentistry in Schaumburg

Solid preventive care is the foundation for your oral and overall health. Good at-home hygiene habits, in combination with professional cleanings, can keep your smile free from decay and other oral health issues like gum disease. Regular exams allow us to monitor your oral health so you can address any minor concerns before they become larger, more costly, and more invasive issues.

Periodontal Care

A healthy smile involves more than just your teeth – your gums play a crucial role too. Periodontal care includes a variety of treatments designed to prevent and treat gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss and other health problems if left untreated. Our team provides comprehensive periodontal care, including deep cleanings, scaling, and root planing to eliminate gum infection and inflammation. Trust our skilled team to help you maintain the health of your teeth and gums.


Unexpected dental emergencies can be both painful and stressful, but our rapid response and compassionate care will restore your peace of mind. We prioritize emergency cases and strive to accommodate same-day and weekend appointments, ensuring you receive immediate attention so you can get back to what really matters.

TMJ/TMD Treatment

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can cause jaw pain, stiffness, and discomfort. Our team offers customized TMJ treatments and Botox injections to help alleviate your symptoms, improving your quality of life. By addressing the underlying causes of your TMJ issues, we can help you find lasting relief and comfort.

Sedation Options

Dental anxiety shouldn't keep you from receiving the dental care you need. We offer a variety of sedation options, including conscious sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas), to ensure you have a comfortable and relaxing dental experience. Whether you are undergoing a routine cleaning or a complex procedure, we cater to your unique needs and help put your mind at ease during your visit.

Diagnostic & Prevention

We get it, it can be a bit too easy to put off your bi-annual dental exam and we don't blame you, life gets busy! But remember, skipping your appointments can cost even more time and money in the future. Coming in twice a year allows us to catch small issues before they become time-consuming, expensive problems. Regular check-ups only take about an hour and we assure you that we will make it a comfortable process. Let's keep that smile of yours healthy with our excellent preventive services.

Cleaning & Hygiene

Regular teeth cleanings and hygiene appointments are the foundation of preventive dental care. During your cleaning, we will thoroughly cleanse your teeth and gums, removing any plaque or debris from every surface in your mouth. You’ll even be able to reverse minor stains to keep your smile bright and beautiful. We recommend scheduling routine cleanings and exams every six months for most patients.

However, good oral hygiene shouldn’t stop when you leave our office. Keeping up with your at-home brushing and flossing routine is equally as important as attending professional cleanings, and is the best way to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Use a fluoride-rich toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes at a time; and don’t forget to floss! Flossing at least once every day, ideally before going to bed, helps to get rid of food particles, plaque, and bacteria that can’t be removed with brushing alone.

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are safe, quick, and comfortable. Using the latest technology, we can create crisp, high-resolution images of your mouth’s structure, so we can make accurate diagnoses and treatment plans. Digital x-rays use only a fraction of the radiation as traditional film x-rays, so you can rest easy. Most patients receive one or two full sets of x-rays every year, but we may recommend additional imaging in the case of a dental emergency, or if we find an oral health issue that we need to investigate further.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a preventive measure that can help protect your child's teeth from decay, particularly in the grooves and pits of their back molars. These areas can be difficult to clean and are more susceptible to cavities. Dental sealants, which are thin coatings applied to your teeth, form a protective shield against plaque and bacteria. The process is quick, and painless, and can effectively safeguard your child's smile for years to come.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer can be difficult to detect in its early stages, but early detection is crucial in successfully treating the disease. That’s why we conduct screenings as part of your regular dental exams. By using advanced screening techniques, we can identify any abnormalities or suspicious areas in your mouth, potentially saving your life.

Night Guards

Grinding your teeth is painful and disruptive to your sleep and it can cause significant damage. Custom-made night guards provide a protective barrier, preventing your teeth from grinding together and helping to minimize damage. Don't let nighttime grinding sabotage your dental health – equip yourself with a comfortable and effective night guard.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatments are one of the best ways to keep dental decay at bay. A simple, non-invasive procedure, fluoride treatments keep your enamel strong. After your cleaning, we’ll apply a fluoride-rich varnish or gel; we may ask you to refrain from eating or drinking anything for 30 minutes or so following your visit. Fluoride helps strengthen the enamel, making it more resistant to acids from plaque, bacteria, and sugary foods that cause cavities.
