During your appointment, your teeth will be polished to remove plaque, polished, and then flossed to remove any remaining debris. Next, Dr. Shook will examine your mouth to look for signs of gum disease, cavities, and other common oral health issues. After this, you’ll schedule any necessary follow-ups and be sent home.
Wondering why preventive dental care matters? Here are just a few of the benefits of seeing Dr. Shook for a consultation in Eau Claire every six months.
Our advanced imaging technology allows us to see below the surface, and ensures Dr. John Shook understands every aspect of your oral health and well-being. X-rays are usually recommended yearly, or whenever Dr. John suspects a hidden oral health issue.
We offer a wide variety of preventive care treatments for gum disease, cavity prevention, and much more.
We offer expert periodontal treatment for gum disease, including deep cleanings (scaling & root planing) to halt and reverse the spread of gum disease.
Fluoride treatments use a powerful, fluoride-rich solution that’s painted onto the teeth after a cleaning. This strengthens them and prevents cavities.
Dental sealants are thin layers of dental resin applied to the rear teeth. They protect the teeth from cavities by ensuring bacteria, acid, and food particles cannot contact the enamel directly.
