CariFree Cavity Prevention Products

Desensitizing Treatments

Teeth can become sensitive to hot, cold, and sweet foods, also small portions of root can become exposed causing pain. Dr. Tavoularis offers treatments to minimize or fully eliminate tooth sensitivity.

Oral Cancer Screening

Every time you’re in our chair, we review many aspects of your health.  Subtle changes in the lining of your mouth call for a closer evaluation, regardless of whether you use tobacco or not. Early detection of oral cancer saves many lives every year, and we’re trained to recognize a myriad of oral tissue abnormalities.

Intraoral Photography

Intraoral photography allows us to take digital images of hard-to-see areas in your mouth that may not be visible with standard x-rays.

Air Abrasion

Air abrasion dentistry is a drill-free method of removing minor decay with a combination of high-pressured air and a minute-particle mixture.

Ultrasonic Periodontal Instrumentation

Ultrasonic periodontal instrumentation is a non-invasive technique used to detect gum disease. Gum disease continues to be the leading cause of tooth loss in adults today.  A devastating condition when left untreated, periodontitis doesn’t have to write your story.
