Preventative and Periodontal Services

preventative and periodontal

At Gregorich & Matak, we provide a range of preventive dental health services to keep your smile looking healthy and bright. By incorporating preventative dentistry into your overall approach to good health, we can help you maintain better oral health.

From regular brushing, flossing, checkups and in-office cleanings to x-rays, fillings, extractions and more, we’re here to help keep your mouth, gums and teeth healthy long into your adult years.

Additionally, we also provide periodontal services. The word periodontal means “around the tooth”. Periodontal services include the examination and care of the gums, bone, and ligaments. If plaque and calulus are not removed, they can begin to destroy the gums and bone.

With a regular program of dental cleaning, you’ll have a better chance of keeping healthy teeth for a lifetime. Our hygienists will pay special attention to your comfort, and your teeth will also be checked over by one of our skilled doctors.

Periodontal Issue Indicators


Preventative dentistry is all about maintaining good oral health. It’s a combination of regular dental check-ups, along with developing healthy habits like brushing and flossing daily. Taking care of your teeth starts early in childhood and extends throughout the course of your life.

Frequently Ask Preventative Care Questions

The American Dental Association recommends brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day to help remove plaque. You should also visit your dentist twice each year for an examination and a professional cleaning!

Generally, most people should visit their dentist every six months for an examination and cleaning. It is also recommended that patients have x-rays done at least once a year. 

For those who might be prone to periodontal problems, checkups and cleanings might be recommended more frequently than the typically two times a year, such as every three or four months. Again, it entirely depends on each patients’ unique situation!

Bleeding gums are often a sign of inflammation or possible gum disease. Even if you have always been healthy, your oral health can change over time! 

If we catch gum disease early, we can often reverse it with proper care at home and professional dental cleanings. Contacting our office at the first sign of a change in your oral health helps us treat it quickly, often saving you time, money, and discomfort.

Your teeth may feel fine, but it’s still important to see the dentist regularly because problems can exist without you knowing. Your smile’s appearance is important, and your dentist can help keep your smile healthy and looking beautiful. With so many advances in dentistry, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, missing, or misshapen teeth. Today’s dentists offer many treatment choices that can help you smile with confidence!
