Preventative Services

What can you do beyond brushing and flossing to help you stay in great dental shape? Here are a few suggestions from the team at Northside Family Dentistry:

  • Regular dental examinations
  • Professional cleanings
  • X-rays when necessary
  • Dental Sealants
  • CariFree® cavity prevention products

Preventative dental care makes a big difference. Keeping up with preventative dentistry will help you avoid painful, costly procedures down the line.


Tooth Decay

Finding and filling cavities is one of the most important things we do for our patients. We also evaluate the strength of your teeth which can affect your potential for decay. Some patients genetically require additional proactive decay prevention, which is where our CariFree® products come in handy.

Gum Disease

Healthy bodies need healthy gums. If gum disease is left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and many other serious health problems like heart attack and stroke. Your mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body and is a direct pathway for infection and disease to enter. Keep your defense strong by keeping your teeth and gums healthy.


Bite & Jaw Assessment

The way your teeth fit together, how your jaw joints and muscles align, and even the state of old dental restorations can greatly affect the comfort and health of your mouth. Your muscular tendencies, stress levels and natural teeth alignment are important in proactive treatment and services to maintain a healthy mouth.

Smile Assessment

A healthy, attractive smile can increase your confidence, help make better first impressions, and improve your personal and professional life. Your aesthetic goals must be aligned with your specific facial structure for a personalized approach to your dental care.

We do this for a living because we love seeing healthy Crossville smiles every day, and you can rest assured that your comfort and care are our top priorities.
