Preventative Care for a Healthy Smile
It’s easy to keep putting off your annual visit to the dentist, but preventative care is the key to continued oral health. Regular professional cleanings can help detect small dental problems before they become major ones. If you’re looking for a dental practice to perform your teeth cleaning, Corpus Christi locals recommend Dr. Russell Borth. Our highly-skilled team of dental professionals provides the care needed to prevent oral disease.
Regular brushing is important, but professional cleaning helps remove traces of plaque that a toothbrush simply can’t reach. For deep teeth cleaning, Corpus Christi residents always turn to us. We also provide fluoride treatments and sealants that protect your teeth and help maintain your long-term oral health.
We believe in educating our patients so they can take better care of their own teeth and gums between dental visits. If you need to improve your brushing technique or learn how to floss, just ask one of our dental professionals. We are always happy to help our patients.

Everyone knows the cleaning routine, but why is it necessary? Regular brushing simply cannot eliminate all traces of plaque. Our tools reach into the area that you cannot see, and as we clean, we can examine your mouth for signs of disease.
Fluoride treatments harden tooth enamel, protecting your teeth from the acids in foods and preventing tooth sensitivity. In children, fluoride treatments incorporate into the permanent structure of teeth. We often recommend fluoride treatments for adults and children alike.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Your long-term oral health is our chief priority, and screenings are a part of our action plan. The American Dental Association recommends that a cancer screening be done during regular dental services. Screening is painless and performed by the dentist. The exam is done using a dye or a specialized light to check your mouth for abnormal growths.
Dental sealants are a thin layer of plastic painted onto your teeth. Usually applied to the backs of teeth, sealants sink into and protect all the grooves, nooks and crannies from plaque and decay. We recommend that children have sealants applied as soon as their permanent molars come in. Sealants last about 10 years and are beneficial to your oral health no matter what your age.
If you have a question about oral hygiene, we can answer it. We can teach people of all ages proper brushing technique, how often to floss and give recommendations on how to improve your oral hygiene. There is no shame in not knowing. All you need to do is ask.
