The goal of preventive care provided by our dentists and hygienists at Dental Place Westborough is to shield you and your family from more invasive, time-consuming and expensive dental appointments.

Most patients need a dental checkup and professional teeth cleaning every six months. Patients who have been diagnosed with gum disease might require cleanings more often to keep the disease under control.

One tool that is important in preventive care is X-rays. We use digital X-ray technology, which emits minimal radiation, for instant images that are powerful diagnostic tools used to identify cavities and other issues that can’t be seen with the naked eye. These are taken at your dental checkups as necessary.

Fluoride treatments, prescription-strength fluoride toothpaste and dental sealants are additional preventive measures that promote oral health while shielding against decay.
