Preventive Dentistry in Jensen Beach, FL for the Entire Family

When you come to us, we believe you have placed a certain amount of trust in our dentistry and the services we provide. We take your trust seriously and will treat you as if you are our own family! Building community is our favorite part of working at Jensen Beach Dental. That is why we focus on how to prevent dental conditions as well as how to resolve them.

When you come to us regularly for dental exams, professional teeth cleanings, and diagnostic x-rays, it allows us to get to know you and your unique health needs. That goes for your children, as well. We can head off many complications before they start by simply being aware of your challenges and oral health needs.

Everyone is different, so we will customize your treatment to match where you are in your dental health as well as your life stage.

Examples of preventive dentistry in Jensen Beach include:

  • Comprehensive dental checkups to find dental issues early
  • Oral cancer screenings to keep you safe
  • Periodic x-rays to seek out dental health issues below the surface
  • Dental sealants to help prevent cavities
  • Fluoride treatments to strengthen teeth
  • Professional teeth cleanings to clear away the debris that causes specific oral health conditions

Remember, preventive dentistry is critical to your future oral health. Through prevention, you lower your risks for dental health complications, including gum disease.

Gum disease is a condition of the soft tissues, and it includes chronic infections of the important structures of your teeth. Periodontal disease is preventable and treatable, but it is not curable, which is why it is better to prevent than it is to treat this gum condition. 

General Dentistry for Your Oral Health

When a dental condition arises, we try to catch it quickly. That is why your regular exams and x-rays are so crucial to your overall health. We can save you time and money—and prevent pain—by treating certain conditions such as decay and cracks before they get worse.

Our fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, and bonding can repair damage, restore your smile and comfort, and prolong the life of your teeth. We treat restorations like small works of art, so that they blend in with your smile and enhance your beauty, not take away from it.

Through general dentistry, we also provide root canal therapy, extractions, periodontal treatment, and other services to restore your oral health.

A root canal is a procedure that rids your tooth of an infected root, which left untreated can cause severe pain and even tooth loss. This is a straightforward procedure, and we always numb the treatment area prior to your therapy. After removing the infected root and pulp, your dentist closes with a temporary filling to encourage healing. At your next dental visit, you receive a tooth-colored filling or a dental crown. We recommend a dental crown if the tooth requires support for stability.

Dr. Wigley, your dentist in Jensen Beach, FL, is great with the details of providing quality restorations and easy treatments. He will also explain your options so you can choose the one that makes the most sense to you and your budget!

Children's Dentistry in Jensen Beach, FL

That is why we welcome patients of all ages, including your children! We know that getting started on the right foot with oral care early in life is important. Our dental team can help design a preventive regimen to keep your littlest family members healthy right from the start.

We start with a solid foundation in prevention for kids, and we work with parents to make sure your child’s home care is appropriate for their age, as well. A member of our team can help you with the right techniques for brushing and flossing and educate you on what to expect when it comes to dental care for your child. In some cases, we may provide nutritional advice, especially if your child is prone to cavities.

We also help kids transition—when age-appropriate—to more independent brushing and flossing, which encourages him or her to take pride in their oral health and care.

Combined with regular exams and professional dental cleanings, you will be able to help your child avoid many common dental conditions such as decay and gum disease.

If your child is prone to cavities, we offer fluoride treatments to strengthen their enamel and dental sealants to provide a barrier between bacteria and their teeth. As your child grows up, we will incorporate diagnostic x-rays and perform an orthodontic evaluation to determine if they need braces while they are still young.

It is our goal to instill healthy dental habits in children by building solid and trusting relationships between our team members and your child. We want their early associations with dental health to be positive, which may contribute to better dental care choices as they grow into adults.

Your child’s dentist in Jensen Beach always makes time to answer your questions and share all exam findings!

Did you know that the health of your gums affects the overall health of your body? Many people don’t know about the heart-gums connection. Research shows that people with periodontal (gum) disease are more likely to suffer from heart attacks, stroke, and other health conditions than those with healthy gums. That’s why it is shocking to hear that more than half of American adults have some level of periodontal disease.

We approach your periodontal health with prevention in mind. Good home care, combined with regular professional cleanings, can keep your gums in good shape. If you do suffer from periodontal disease, we will work with you to control the infection, eliminate the bacteria that cause gum disease, and help you to heal.

Protecting your gums means protecting your heart and potentially saving your life.
