With our preventive care dentistry services, Dr. Jayson Voto can energize your smile and protect your family’s oral health for years to come.

These services give our team the opportunity to learn about each patient’s unique dental needs as well as remove harmful plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth and gums. With just two appointments each year, we can help patients avoid the most common dental problems for years at a time.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a very common and damaging bacterial infection of the gums, roots of the teeth, and the bone that supports them. It can often lead to tooth loss, but with our periodontal therapy treatments, we can make sure your oral health and smile stay happy and whole for a lifetime to come.
Did you know that the back teeth are the most likely to develop cavities? This is because their rough and pitted surfaces easily trap food particles and plaque that can be quite difficult to remove with brushing (especially for young children). To help safeguard our patients’ smiles, we can shield these teeth using a dental sealant. A thin layer of a plastic-based substance is placed directly on the teeth, and it quickly hardens into an invisible barrier that cavity-causing plaque, acids, and bacteria cannot cross.
According to research, about 1 in 3 people suffer from bruxism, which is a condition where a person clenches their jaw and grinds their teeth while they sleep. Over time, this can cause the teeth to wear down to the point that they eventually break! To help with this issue, we can recommend that a patient wear a custom-made nightguard to bed. This is a small oral appliance that places a protective barrier between the teeth to prevent any damaging contact.
Oral cancer is an often fatal disease that is actually very treatable when detected early, which is why Dr. Voto includes a comprehensive cancer screening as part of every routine checkup. During this exam, he’ll look for persistent sores or patches of discolored tissue in your mouth, and if he finds anything that causes concern, he can help you quickly get the follow-up treatment you need. The screening only takes a few minutes, but it’s a few minutes that could literally save your life.
For decades, it has been common knowledge that fluoride is fantastic for the teeth. This mineral actually rebuilds the enamel and helps prevent cavities, which is why you’ll find it so often in toothpaste and tap water. However, some people still don’t get enough in their daily life, which leaves their teeth vulnerable to preventable issues. We can include a quick and easy fluoride treatment as part of your family’s regular checkups to ensure everyone stays cavity-free between appointments.
