Preventive Care

Child getting preventative dental care

Dentistry is one of the most important aspects of our day-to-day life. However, it can also be a very expensive and time-consuming process. It all begins with preventive dentistry, which helps keep your teeth and gums healthier for longer periods of time; saving you both money and effort in the long run. Preventive care includes: brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least once daily, visiting the dentist every six months to check on oral health status (and get dental cleanings), using mouthwash after eating anything acidic or sugary, drinking lots of water each day to avoid dry mouth symptoms as well as more serious conditions like gum disease or bone loss.

At Hermiston Dental Group, we can complement the precautions you take at home with comprehensive services that are designed to keep you from ever needing a dental emergency. Our preventive care includes professional cleanings and exams, removing plaque and tartar buildup, preventing tooth decay with sealants, genetic testing for susceptibility to tooth decay, treatment for gum disease scaling, and root planing.

We all know that dental care is important, but it can be hard to get into the habit of going to the dentist. It’s not just about brushing your teeth and flossing every day- you need regular checkups with a professional who can help you avoid cavities, gum disease, and other problems before they happen. Dr. Nicacio at Hermiston Dental Group is a friendly dentist that makes you feel at home and can help you keep your smile healthy and beautiful and feel confident.

Doctor takes good care of my family. When grandson knocked tooth out, got us in immediately and then set up emergency dental -medical in TRI-Cities for him in hopes of saving the tooth. Quick, caring action in emergency situation. Above and beyond help. Really feel like he cares about our dental needs. We get the best.
