Cleaning and Prevention

Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended biannual cleanings and examinations. Not only do they help you quash dental problems before they arise, they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter. A professional cleaning removes hard plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. It also involves a fluoride treatment and polish to help protect and soothe your teeth and gums. Even if you haven’t had a cleaning in over two years, it’s never too late to treat your teeth.

This was my first experience with Dr Jakubek. Since I had not been tot he dentist in a couple of years and since my old dentist was in another state, I was apprehensive to say the least. It’s never easy to pick a new medical provider. I will honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised with my whole experience. I had 2 cavities fixed and a crown. Watching the crown be sculpted was fascinating. The entire staff works to make you feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend them.
