We want our patients to join us in the belief that a healthy smile truly can last a lifetime. By maintaining proper hygiene and attending routinely to the health of your teeth and gums, our team can help you in the fight against tooth decay and periodontal issues that are the leading causes of tooth loss and serious oral health problems. Dr. Sutter regards preventive dentistry as essential to providing you and your family with holistic dental care, and with that in mind, we recommend semi-annual checkups and hygiene treatments. These regular exams and preventive dentistry in Eugene, OR allow us to keep a close eye on your oral health. Routine visits enable us to catch and prevent problems quickly and diagnose and address existing issues like cavities and gum disease before they cause any serious damage.
Your checkup at For Beautiful Smiles will likely be a little different compared to other ones you’ve had. In addition to looking at your teeth and gums, Dr. Sutter will also take several measures of your bite to ensure that your teeth and jaw joint are properly aligned. Once he is finished, one of our expert hygienists will remove all of the plaque and tartar from your mouth, making sure to target those areas that are out of reach of your brush and floss.
Fluoride is all around you, as it’s added to most oral healthcare products and even public water sources. Most people get enough fluoride to keep their teeth protected from decay through their diet and oral hygiene routine, but if you could benefit from more of this helpful mineral, then we can apply topical fluoride as part of your cleaning to ensure your smile stays healthy between visits.
Oral cancer claims at least one life each and every hour, and that’s because this disease is very easy to miss early on, meaning it is often discovered only after it has become advanced. Every time you come to see us, we will give you a quick but thorough cancer screening. This way, if we find any questionable growths or discoloration, we can help you get a diagnosis and treatment (if necessary) without delay.
A proud father himself, Dr. Sutter loves welcoming young patients into our dental office and putting them on the path toward a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles. He knows how to help even nervous children feel comfortable in the dental office, and his treatment approach will be designed to safeguard your child’s oral development while ensuring any problems are quickly treated (or ideally, avoided entirely!).
Every sport, whether or not it involves contact, carries with it the risk of dental injury.
