Keep your smile at its best for life with preventive dental care. We offer dental cleanings to improve your oral health and keep your smile at its best. By maintaining your six-month appointments and a good at-home dental hygiene regimen, you can keep your teeth healthy and free from decay or damage.
Sealants act as a thin plastic barrier, keeping bacteria and food debris out of tooth crevices and preventing cavities from forming. They can also be placed to stop the earliest stages of decay rather than placing a filling. When compared to the use of fluoride alone, sealants are highly effective in preventing cavities on the chewing surfaces of molars.
Fluoride treatments are typically professional treatments containing a high concentration of fluoride that a dentist or hygienist will apply to a person’s teeth to improve health and reduce the risk of cavities. These in-office treatments may take the form of a solution, gel, foam, or varnish.

The first sign of sleep apnea is often tooth grinding. We look for worn tooth surfaces, a sign that a patient grinds their teeth. Grinding can cause tooth wear and breakage as well as inflamed gums. Cavities can also be a sign of grinding because the force damages teeth, making them susceptible to cavity-causing bacteria.
FAQ’s About General Dentistry
What is included in general dentistry checkups?
Dr. Krait will conduct visual inspections and evaluations of teeth and gum health, teeth, and gums. Depending upon the results we can further investigate with treatments such as X-rays, Sleep apnea treatment, Tooth sealants, and minor dental procedures like cavity removal, root canals, dental crowns, and cleaning on a case-by-case basis.
Why is general dentist visits important?
It is important to maintain the health of your smile as well as your overall health. Unaddressed tooth decay or gum disease can lead to infections and other conditions that can put your entire body at risk for health issues.
How often should i visit my dentist?
A dental check-up is recommended once every four to six months, or two to three times each year. However, as mentioned, some patients may require more frequent check-up visits, such as patients that are going through dental implant placement or another more extensive treatment plan.
