Preventative Care in North Olmsted, OH

Dental instruments being used to examine patient’s teeth during appointment

Seeing a dentist just twice a year can drastically improve your oral health, helping to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and other conditions. Located in North Olmsted, Ohio, Sikora Family Dentistry has been serving West Side communities for over 30 years. We offer preventive dental care for adults and children of all ages. Providing compassionate care in a welcoming environment allows for your comfort and health to be our top priorities.

What Is Preventive Dental Care?

One of the keys to good oral health is stopping problems before they start. Preventive dental care is the set of services that help impede dental diseases, such as regular cleanings and X-rays. It also includes your dental hygiene routine at home, like brushing your teeth twice a day. At Sikora Family Dentistry, our team of experienced dentists, dental hygienists, and office staff offer comprehensive care to help you stay proactive about your oral health.

Common Preventive Care Services

Standard of care will have most adults and kids making appointments for routine dental visits every six months for preventive care. Dental concerns such as tooth decay and gum disease can be prevented through regular cleanings and exams. Our dental preventive care services include:

Exams and Teeth Cleaning

Over time, plaque can build up on your teeth, even if you brush and floss every day. Plaque can erode your tooth enamel and eventually harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. Regular dental exams and cleanings can remove any plaque or tartar that is developed on your teeth and around the gums, leaving you with a healthy smile.


X-ray imaging is used for preventive care and to help diagnose tooth pain and other issues. When we take X-rays, we are generating images of your teeth both above and below the gum line. This is a non-invasive way to identify any structural issues, crowding, and cavities.


A sealant is a thin, protective coating that is applied to the pits and crevices on a tooth surface. Sealants are often used on children’s molars to help prevent cavities. American Dental Association reports that sealants can reduce the risk of tooth decay by nearly 80%.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a mineral found naturally in many foods. It is also often added to municipal water supplies. Because fluoride makes teeth more resistant to damage caused by sugar, bacteria, and plaque, it is an important treatment for preventing tooth decay.

Fluoride treatments are quick, painless dental procedures that apply fluoride to the teeth using a foam or gel. They are often given to pediatric patients, and may sometimes be needed for adults. Most commercially available toothpastes and mouthwashes have added fluoride to help protect teeth, as well.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Regular dental visits can also identify early signs or risk factors for oral cancer. To perform the screening, a dentist will examine your lips, gums, tongue, and the inside of your mouth. They may use a tongue depressor, dental mirror, or light to examine you.

Home Care Instruction

At Sikora Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of patient education. Simple steps like proper brushing and flossing can go a long way toward maintaining healthy teeth and gums. That is why we take the time to provide preventive home care instruction for patients of all ages. We will show you how to brush and floss correctly so that you can take care of your teeth between biannual cleanings.
