Preventative Dentistry

Multiple things are checked and monitored to help detect, prevent and maintain your overall dental health. You can receive fluoride treatments and additional products based on your risk factors that Dr. Gatgens discovers.

We'll even give you an advanced oral cancer screening with Oral ID, so your health will always be first. Preventative dentistry involves everything we do to keep your teeth healthy.

Regular dental exams and cleaning visits are essential to preventing dental problems and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. At these visits, we'll clean your teeth and check for cavities.

It’s simple: schedule your routine cleanings at Accent Smile Center. Then, show up. Not only does that keep your teeth clean, but it allows us to find potential risks and fix them before they turn into real problems.

Strengthen Your Teeth With Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is used to strengthen teeth. Today, it's found in most drinking water, but many people grew up without the benefit of fluoride if their water source was from a well.

Also, the fact many Americans drink bottled water today makes it more important to see your dentist to have that added benefit at the office.

Offering Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays, or digital radiographs, are one of the newest innovations in dentistry. This new technology exposes patients to significantly reduced exposure.

Also, digital images are much easier for a dentist to read and for a patient to view.

The images can be adjusted and expanded, allowing dentists to see conditions more clearly, which in turn leads to better diagnosis and better treatment for patients.

X ray scanner


This new technology enables Dr. Gatgens to take one low radiation, high-definition, 3D CT scan, lasting under five seconds, to give us all the X-rays we need for your treatment.
