Routine preventive care helps keep your teeth healthy, saves you time and money, and prevents complications like tooth decay and gum disease. It also helps you make the most of your dental benefits.
Teeth cleanings and oral exams are the heart of preventive care. Research has shown that oral health impacts the overall health of our bodies. During this process, a hygienist at The Ivory Dental Co. will gather digital x-rays and intraoral images, check the overall health of your gums, and finish with a thorough dental cleaning. Our compassionate hygienists will take the time to individualize a plan for your everyday needs to set you up for future healthy visits! Dr. Sweeney will then do your exam, fully inspecting your mouth to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy.
Fluoride treatments are usually done after a cleaning. This process simply involves applying a fluoride-rich substance to your teeth to attract minerals, strengthen them, and prevent or even reverse minor tooth decay.
Dental sealants use a clear, strong dental resin that’s painted onto your back teeth in a liquid form, then hardens into a barrier that prevents cavities for up to 10 years. This treatment is great for cavity-prone patients.
We offer a full suite of treatments for gum disease, including both gum infection therapy and AirFlow guided biofilm removal.
During gum infection therapy, Dr. Sweeney will use special instruments to clean deep beneath your teeth and gums to remove bacteria. She will also smooth rough surfaces of your teeth and the nearby tissue to help prevent bacteria from coming back. Along with antibiotics, this is the best first step for gum disease treatment.
We use AirFlow therapy for guided biofilm removal to eliminate the uncomfortable 'scraping' feeling and sound that patients with sensitive teeth dread. Airflow guided biofilm removal uses a special polisher that sprays a jet of air and powder to clean and remove plaque-filled biofilm from even the most hard-to-reach areas of your teeth and gums, which provides better overall patient outcomes and a more pleasant experience.
We offer oral cancer screenings as part of every appointment at The Ivory Dental Co. Oral cancer often goes unnoticed unless a dentist catches it early. With devices like intraoral cameras, Dr. Sweeney can quickly look for and document any signs of oral cancer. If an issue is identified, we offer biopsy services to take a sample of the lesion or other area of the mouth and get it tested right away.

This office is absolutely beautiful! You feel like you are at a med spa. There are so many amenities that help put you at ease. The technology is top notch. I've never had such detailed images. Dr. Sweeney and her staff are so friendly, so warm and welcoming. They explain everything in such great detail. I never felt rushed.
My experience here was amazing! The staff were all super sweet, accommodating, and very thorough. Clinic was clean, decorated gorgeously, and the little tour they give you as a new patient was also nice. Loved how they take the time to answer any questions you have. They explain things in detail and show a 3D image of your teeth on a TV screen so you’re able to see every little area! I was very satisfied with my teeth cleaning. HIGHLY recommend The Ivory Dental Co!
