Preventive Treatment Options at Healthy Smiles

Professional Teeth Cleaning: Every routine dental visit starts with a thorough tooth cleaning. Either Dr. Tim Anastassatos or a hygienist will clean your teeth with care. The professional scaling will eliminate bacteria, plaque, and tartar build-up. We will also buff, polish, and floss your smile so it shines bright.

Essential or Annual Radiographs: If you are overdue for a set of x-rays or if Dr. Tim Anastassatos suspects you may have a hidden problem, expect us to take some images. Traditional or digital x-rays enable us to detect budding issues not visible to the naked eye.
