Preventive dentistry helps keep your mouth, teeth, and gums healthy, avoiding the need for future dental work that can be both uncomfortable and expensive. Our dentists and the Kirkland Cornerstone Dental team will work with you to ensure you smile is healthy and bright, and will educate you on how to maintain your smile at home between visits.

Preventive exams are a vital part of your overall oral health. At your regularly scheduled dental appointment, we will thoroughly examine your entire mouth, then explain our findings and discuss recommended treatment options.

Dental cleanings should be performed at least twice annually. Preventive cleanings involve a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums, removal of tartar, and a thorough exam to ensure there are no signs of decay or gingivitis (gum disease).

Dental sealants can be used to help prevent decay on the chewing surfaces of the teeth, by coating small pits and crevices that would otherwise provide a safe haven for bacteria and plaque. Ask your doctor if you could benefit from dental sealants.

Oral cancer screening is an easy, quick, and painless check for any sign of oral cancer. We use a specialized tool and it only takes about two minutes to complete the exam. Catching oral cancer early could save your life!

Protective mouthguards can be invaluable if you find that you grind your teeth, or if a you’re involved in sports. Mouthguards aren’t just for kids! Kirkland Cornerstone Dental recommends Under Armour Performance mouthwear when indicated.
