Why Choose Stonebriar Smile Design for Preventive Dentistry?
Multiple Dentists with Many Years

& Teeth Cleanings
A standard dental checkup and teeth cleaning are the cornerstones of modern dentistry, and the reason for that is simple: they work! When you come in for a routine preventive dentistry appointment, one of our excellent hygienists will use advanced tools to clean your teeth, and then Dr. Wade or Dr. Moody will examine your teeth and mouth for signs of common dental problems and more. By coming in for these dental checkups at least twice a year, we can stop many dental issues from developing in the first place!
Fluoride is one of the most important minerals you can get for your oral health, and for good reason. This is precisely why it’s often found in your favorite oral care products, including toothpaste and mouthwash. At Stonebriar Smile Design, we offer a much stronger fluoride treatment designed to strengthen and protect enamel in between your professional checkups and cleanings. Applying the fluoride takes minutes, causes no discomfort, and is proven to reduce the risk of tooth decay, especially in younger patients.
Nighttime teeth grinding, otherwise known as bruxism, can be caused by stress or an injury, and often, this can cause problems for the sensitive jaw joint known as the TMJ (temporomandibular joint). Problems with bruxism and the TMJ can damage the teeth, injure the jaw, and create all kinds of chronic pain. Fortunately, our team can help protect your smile from this issue.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Our doctors recommend that everyone should have at least one oral cancer screening per year. Why? Because early detection is the best indicator when it comes to successfully treating this terrible disease. Your dentist can perform one during your regular dental checkup to make sure it never catches you off guard. We use modern technology called an oral ID light that helps illuminate any cancerous, pre-cancerous, or suspicious cells.
