At Dad & Doc Dental, our team is committed to providing common sense dentistry to the residents of the Wallburg and Winston-Salem communities. A large part of that philosophy revolves around providing quality preventive care to all of our patients.
Preventive care allows us to diagnose and treat potential problems before they become serious issues. Keeping your teeth healthy is a vital part of keeping your body healthy, too, as serious conditions such as heart disease have been linked to poor oral health.

Exams & Cleanings
Routine exams and cleanings are important for keeping your oral health in tip-top shape. You should make an appointment for an exam and cleaning at our dental office near Winston-Salem in the Wallburg, NC community approximately every six months. This exam gives us the ability to take a regular, close look at your teeth and gums and check for signs of disease or decay, and even oral cancer and TMJ disorder. Catching these problems early lets us provide you with conservative solutions rather than expensive, invasive treatments.

When plaque builds up, that plaque wears away at the enamel of your teeth. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that remineralizes the enamel in an effort to strengthen teeth and protect against decay. Patients of all ages can benefit from regular fluoride treatments. In addition to using fluoride toothpaste at home, we may recommend a fluoride treatment — typically a gel or a rinse — at our Winston-Salem dental practice to give your teeth even more protection.
Good oral hygiene habits are important for preventing cavities, but there are times that your toothbrush doesn’t quite reach all the areas of your teeth. This is where dental sealants can help. Sealants are placed into the grooves of teeth, particularly molars and premolars. They create a barrier against food particles, acid from foods and drinks, and plaque, essentially protecting teeth from damage. Children and adults alike can benefit from the protection that sealants provide.

Nightguards & Mouthguards
If you grind your teeth at night or wake with headaches, you might benefit from the use of a nightguard. When worn during sleep, nightguards prevent intense grinding or clenching, protecting your teeth from wear and tear, as well as relieving stress on your jaw.
If you or your teen plays contact sports, an athletic mouthguard can help protect against dental trauma. Jarring of the teeth, impact to the face, and other sports-related injuries can cause dental problems that need extensive work to fix. Avoid injuries and protect your teeth, gums, and cheeks with a mouthguard.
All nightguards and mouthguards from our Wallburg neighborhood dental office are custom-made to ensure a proper, comfortable fit.
