Teeth Cleanings & Hygiene

Teeth cleanings and oral exams form the backbone of preventive dentistry. We recommend that patients come and see Dr. Shook and Dr. Monica every six months at Shook Family Dental in Eau Claire.

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.

Preventing Common Oral Health Issues

We offer a wide variety of preventive care treatments for gum disease, cavity prevention, and much more.

Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontal Care

We offer expert periodontal treatment for gum disease, including deep cleanings (scaling & root planing) to halt and reverse the spread of gum disease.

Strengthen Teeth

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatments use a powerful, fluoride-rich solution that’s painted onto the teeth after a cleaning. This strengthens them and prevents cavities.

Prevent Cavities

Dental Sealants

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.
