Preventive Dental Care  

Preserve your natural smile for years to come with our preventive dental care services. From routine dental cleaning to periodontal care, our dentists will help you maintain exceptional oral health and prevent serious dental problems in the future.

Dental Cleaning & Exams

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends a bi-annual cleaning and exam for all patients. These routine appointments help keep cavities and gum disease in check; additionally, routine exams prevent our patients from experiencing a toothache or gum pain. Catching and treating cavities and gum disease during the early stages is key to keeping a healthy mouth. Current research indicates that poor oral hygiene is related to heart disease and diabetes as well as other systemic conditions. The oral cavity is the link to an overall healthy body.

Dental Hygiene is very important and can be easily maintained with the proper habits. Daily brushing and flossing at home is just as important as routine dental cleanings at the dental office. Routine office cleanings along with proper at-home care provides patients with healthy gums and teeth for life; we encourage our patients to take an active role in their oral health. At Belterra Dental, we believe in empowering our patient’s with knowledge so they can make the right decisions for themselves and their family members.


Protect your smile from injuries with a custom mouthguard that’s specially made just for you. Mouthguards are dental devices that cover the teeth to protect them from injury. They also provide protection for the lips, tongue, gums, and jaw. We offer two types of mouthguards: a night guard for bruxism or teeth grinding, and an athletic guard to wear during various types of sports activities. The ADA recommends mouthguards for anyone participating in athletic or recreational activities, especially those with a significant amount of risk of trauma to the mouth or face. While collision and contact sports have the highest risk of injury, limited-contact and non-contact sports are also at risk. Check out the full list of sports we recommend a mouthguard for.

Dental Sealants

At Belterra, we like to call dental sealant “tooth shields” because that is essentially what they are. Sealants are protective “armor” placed on deep grooves of our teeth to protect them from cavities and staining. Sticky, chewy foods and candy have tendency to get stuck in the deep grooves and crevices of our teeth and start to break down our teeth, leading to a cavity. In order to prevent cavities, a flowable resin material is placed on the tooth to protect vulnerable spaces and grooves on our teeth.

Regular exams help spot trouble early to prevent bigger and more costly treatments later.

Medical and dental experts study the use of X-rays and set limits for their safety. Your dentist should take as few as possible. Sometimes dentists may recommend X-rays to diagnose a special problem. Advancements in technology means today’s digital X-rays release much less radiation and are safer than in the past.

Stores sell many whitening products, and you can get take-home gels and trays from your dentist, but neither is as strong as procedures done in a dental office

If you want to try an over-the-counter whitener, look for one with an ADA seal. Check with your dentist for advice before you buy, especially if you have dental work or dark stains. And don’t keep using them, or you could damage your teeth.

Caps and crowns cover problem teeth by surrounding them in a material that looks like a real tooth. They use the root and inside of the tooth as a base to build on, then attach with special cement.

Children, teens, and adults should all see the dentist for a regular checkup at least once every six months. Patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancer or gum disease may be required to see the dentist more than just twice a year. Your doctor will help determine how often you should visit the dentist for regular checkups.
