Preventive & General Care
At Prairie Dental Care, we practice dentistry for the whole family. From preventive education & regular, warm water cleanings by our gentle Hygienist, to identifying & caring for dental issues that may arise, your continued oral health is our top priority. That’s why we believe in preventing dental problems before they become costly, painful, or both. When problems do arise, our skilled team is there to provide you with solutions.
Additionally, we are a family practice. Our doctors have extensive experience working with children & teens, so they can make the dental experience better for everyone.
Oral Cancer Screening
When it comes to oral cancer, early detection leads to more treatment options & better outcomes. Using a revolutionary hand-held device, dentists & hygienists can detect potentially cancerous tissue earlier & more easily than before. The system works by emitting a safe blue light that makes tissues in your mouth appear fluorescent, revealing abnormalities that might not be visible to the naked eye. This system is the only non-invasive device clinically proven to help discover otherwise undetectable signs of oral disease.

Periodontal (Gum) Care
Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile—it can cause loss of teeth & eventually, if left untreated, other more serious health problems. Continued research has linked gum disease to diabetes, heart disease & low birth weight. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth’s soft tissues. Early warning signs of this disease include red, swollen, or bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage. If detected late, we can use one of the many effective restorative dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to its healthy, beautiful state. In an effort to rid your teeth of the plaque & tartar that causes gum disease & tooth decay, your hygienist may suggest a regimen of care that requires more frequent visits to our office.

Tooth decay, otherwise known as cavities, can be a significant problem for children as well as adults. There are numerous factors that lead to tooth decay & there are many ways to prevent it. With the use of sealants, we can cover the deep grooves in your back teeth & extend their life while helping to prevent cavities.
Mercury amalgam (silver) fillings may be hazardous to your health. At Prairie Dental Care, we believe that the overall health of our patients always comes first. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use new & advanced fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. It’s just one more way that we show our patients how much we care. Your safety & smile are our primary concerns!
